Public Concern at Work, a whistleblowing charity, has set up an "independent Whistleblowing Commission" to examine existing arrangements for workplace whistleblowing and make recommendations for change. Members of the commission include two whistleblowers, one of whom is the former chief executive of United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust, Gary Walker.
The commission will oversee a public consultation process, due to commence in March 2013, to assess different aspects of whistleblowing, including:
The effectiveness of current legislation.
The role of regulators.
The current rewards for whistleblowing.
How tribunals are protecting whistleblowers and society at large.
The commission and Public Concern at Work intend to produce a report in November 2013.
