Whistleblower disclosure report public

THE provincial government has made public the report on the Whistleblower Protection Act.

The review of the formally titled Public Interest Disclosure Act was conducted by Dianna Scarth, former executive director of the Manitoba Human Rights Commission.

The act proclaimed in April 2007 was to enable disclosure and investigation of significant or serious wrongdoing in or relating to the public service, and protect those who make disclosures from reprisals.

Scarth's review made 10 recommendations, including ensuring all employees receive adequate education programs and strengthening the protections against reprisal by giving the ombudsman the authority to investigate and take immediate action to address acts of reprisals.

"We were the first province to bring in stand-alone legislation to protect whistleblowers and we welcome these recommendations which will allow us to make the legislation even stronger," Finance Minister Jennifer Howard said in a prepared statement.
