The Protected Disclosures Act came into effect on 15th July 2014. The purpose of the Act is to provide a framework within which workers can raise concerns regarding potential wrongdoing that has come to their attention in the work place in the knowledge that protections are available to them from any form of penalisation from doing so.
Leitrim County Council has a Protected Disclosure Policy and Procedures in place through which is intended to foster a culture and work environment within which workers are encouraged and supported in making reports in the knowledge that their concerns will be taken seriously, will be investigated, where appropriate, and that their confidentiality will be respected. This policy applies to all Leitrim County Council workers including contractors, consultants, agency staff, former employees and interns/trainees.
