CLA’s Policy – Public interest disclosure – whistleblowing

CLA supports the right of people to make a public interest disclosure – ie be a whistleblower* – for the good of the community, to safeguard individuals or groups and/or to ensure that wrongs are corrected. People in authority should respect, not penalise, those who take a stand against corruption or complacency.

CLA advises anyone thinking of making a public interest disclosure to contact Whistleblowers, or CLA, for case histories before taking any action.

Definition: A whistleblower is someone who reveals wrongdoing, in or by an organization, to the public or to people in authority. The formal term is ‘public interest disclosure’.
