The Protected Disclosures Act 2014 aims to protect people who raise concerns about possible wrongdoing in the workplace.

The Act, which came into effect on 15 July 2014, is often called the whistle-blower legislation. It provides for redress for employees who are dismissed or otherwise penalised for having reported possible wrongdoing in the workplace.

As set out in Statutory Instrument 339 of 2014 Protected Disclosures Act 2014 (Section 7(2)) Order 2014 the Western Development Commission (WDC) is prescribed to be recipients of disclosures of relevant wrongdoings.
