The UK Government has published a consultation, entitled Prescribed persons: annual reporting requirements on whistleblowing.
The Government is introducing a power in the Small Business Enterprise and Employment Bill (the Bill) to enable the Secretary of State to make regulations to require persons prescribed under the Employment Rights Act 1996 to report annually on whistleblowing issues.
The purpose of the consultation is to seek views on how the Government implements this reporting requirement. The conclusions of the consultation will shape the secondary legislation that is developed under the new power in the Bill.
The deadline for comments on the consultation is 30 September 2014.
