Legal Lab with Aston Paiva on Rights of Whistleblowers
March 17, 2017 @ 18:30 - 20:30Free
There is a recent and significant development in the law to embolden employees to step forwards and disclose any reprehensible conduct at workplace to the relevant authorities including MACC.
We call them “whistleblowers”.
The Whistleblower Protection Act 2010 came into effect on 15 December 2010 with the purpose of protecting the whistleblowers from any detrimental action taken against them.
In the case of Syed Omar bin Syed Agil v Institut Profesional Baitulmal Sdn Bhd, Dr. Syed Omar Syed Agil succeeded in his claim against his former employer to strike off a notice of internal investigations against him over his disclosure of alleged misconduct at his workplace.
The High Court judge affirmed the intention of Parliament and ruled that the defendant is required to prove detrimental action taken against plaintiff is not in reprisal for the disclosure under s.10(1), (3) and (7) of the Whistleblower Protection Act 2010.
To what extent does the Act actually protect whistleblower?
Come and join our Legal Lab with Aston Paiva on Rights of Whistleblowers on 17th March 2017 at MCCHR from 6.30pm – 8.30pm to find out!
