New Whistleblower Laws?
Australia is about to instigate some new whistleblower (WB) laws.
"The framework that the bill creates is not perfect. The requirement that an external disclosure must be in the ''public interest'' still requires whistleblowers to make a risky judgment call. The exclusion of intelligence agencies and some politicians from the ambit of the legislation continues to be a matter of concern. The legislation still contains some ambiguous or unnecessarily technical language."
Sorry folks finally got the opportunity to read a bit more and seems the actual laws would encourage WB - but please note the above quote that intelligence agencies and some politicians would be excluded ....
these laws were passed despite being so busy changing PM and front benchers.
Any improvement is great but considering the current controverisies Do you think such laws go far enough?
