Today we have launched a joint petition with WhistleblowersUK calling on the Government to review the law: It’s time for the UK to return to its place, leading global standards on whistleblowing.
Protect, along with WhistleblowersUK, and the public, call on this Government to deliver a whistleblowing law that offers real protection to whistleblowers, sets obligatory standards for employers and regulators to adhere to, and provides stronger enforcement when things go wrong. We support the APPG (All Party Parliamentary Group) for Whistleblowing and others in calling for an urgent review of the whistleblowing law, the Public Interest Disclosure Act (PIDA).
Protect’s Acting Chief Executive, Liz Gardiner, said, “Everyone who cares about reforming PIDA should sign this petition – the more support and voices we have calling for change, the better.”
Add your name to the petition below to tell the Government that whistleblowers deserve better:
