LLP Whistleblowing Policy
This Whistleblowing Policy refers to whistleblowing as it relates to LLPs and specifically that the law allows members to make a “Protected Disclosure” of certain information. This “certain information” is defined in the Policy covering issues from criminal offences to the protection of the environment, endangerment of health & safety of any individual and deliberate concealment.
As of May 2014 following a Supreme Court ruling, members of LLPs are to be treated as “workers” and therefore covered by the protections which UK law provides for whistle-blowers. The extension of whistleblowing legislation to LLP members is potentially very significant and LLPs will need to ensure that they have an internal whistleblowing procedure which covers their members.
This Whistleblowing Policy in in line with our whistleblowing policy for employees, which is contained in our Employment Folder.
