Whistleblower Policy

Whistleblowing plays a crucial role in managing risk and cultivating an ethical culture in a not-for-profit organisation.

During 2019, national whistleblowing statute was adopted and from January 1, 2020, some not-for-profits will be required by law to have a whistleblower policy in place.

You can learn more about these statutory changes in the latest editions of Our Community Matters, and also in this article by Sally McDow, Your Call's head of client advisory.
