Protected disclosures

The Protected Disclosures Act 2014 enables workers to raise a concern regarding potential wrongdoing in the workplace.  The Act ensures that safeguards exist to prevent reprisals against them. 

The Act requires every public body to:

  • establish and maintain procedures for dealing with protected disclosures
    and
  • provide written information relating to these procedures to workers.

Revenue commits to providing the necessary support for any staff member who raises genuine concerns.  See our Revenue Policy on Protected Disclosure reporting in the workplace for further information.
