Whistleblowing

Whistleblowing is the act of reporting suspected wrongdoing in a place of work, in the public interest.

The Auditor General is classed as a prescribed person. This means that a worker can report concerns about wrongdoing in a workplace to the Auditor General, as well as, or instead of, their employer.

Providing that the concerns raised relate to one or more of the following matters, a worker may benefit from protection against detriment from their employer:

  • the proper conduct of public business; or
  • value for money, fraud and corruption in relation to the provision of public services.

The Auditor General will consider, but isn't obliged to investigate, every disclosure he receives.

Find out more or get further information and advice on blowing the whistle in our leaflet: Are you concerned about wrongdoing or malpractice in the workplace?
