It's important to encourage staff to disclose wrongdoing and to protect those who do from reprisal.
Whistleblower protection is defined as legal protection from discriminatory or disciplinary action for employees who disclose wrongdoing of any kind in the context of their workplace in good faith and to a competent authority.
The province developed a whistleblowing guide for municipalities and their staff. The guide describes current legislative protection and frameworks in Saskatchewan which may be useful when developing a whistleblower bylaw or policy for staff.
NOTE: Do not use this guide for legal reference; consult a solicitor to obtain legal advice.
