The Protected Disclosures Act, 2014

The Protected Disclosures Act 2014 introduced provisions to protect workers from being penalised for whistleblowing. It provides for a worker to report a wrongdoing or suspected wrongdoing to his/her employer or certain other persons. Once a wrongdoing or suspected wrongdoing has been reported, the 2014 Act provides certain protections from penalisation for the worker who reported the wrongdoing.

For further information on making a disclosure under the Protected Disclosures Act 2014 please see the PSI Guide to Protected Disclosures Act 2014.

The PSI, as a public body, is required to report each year on the number of disclosures made to it. The report is included as an appendix to the PSI’s Annual Report and Financial Statements (see Publications).
