Protected Disclosures Act 2014

Have you considered the implications?

With the introduction of the Protected Disclosures Act 2014, employers are expected to comply with the pan-sectoral legislative framework for the protection of whistleblowers. The legislation pays particular attention to protecting the identity of a whistleblower and the employer is required to take all reasonable steps to ensure confidentiality.

KPMG's Whistleblowing Hotline

In increasingly turbulent operating environments, businesses need to do as much as possible to protect themselves against financial crime, misconduct or ethical issues. Our experience shows that many crimes go unreported as employees fear reprisal for reporting.

KPMG’s Forensic practice provides an independent confidential service to help address this issue – KPMG Whistleblowing Hotline.

Hotlines have proven to be one of the more expedient and inexpensive whistleblowing solutions to date, and have become an essential component to any risk management strategy. It also allows the employer to take prompt, effective action.

What's involved?

We will provide your business with:

  • A call centre consisting of live operators - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year 
  • A secure client email address which employees can use in complete confidentiality 
  • A hotlink which will enable you to create your own confidential reports online 
  • Secure reports sent to a designated person within your business
