From 1 July 2019 there will be significant changes to Australia’s whistleblower regime. The changes allow whistleblowers to make anonymous disclosures and expand the categories of persons qualifying for whistleblower protections. The whistleblower regime also provides for disclosures related to tax affairs, and requires public and large proprietary companies to have a compliant whistleblowing policy in place by 1 January 2020. Civil and Criminal penalties apply for contravention.
