Protected Disclosures

Print page

The Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection is committed to fostering an appropriate environment for addressing concerns of workers (staff and contractors of the Department) relating to potential wrongdoing in the workplace and to providing the necessary support for workers that raise genuine concerns. The Protected Disclosures Act 2014 requires every public body to establish and maintain procedures for dealing with protected disclosures and to provide written information relating to these procedures to workers. The Department's Policy and Procedures on Protected Disclosure Reporting is available here.

As required by Section 22 of the Protected Disclosures Act, an annual report in relation to protected disclosures is published in the Department’s Annual Report.
