Whistleblowing and Protected Disclosures

To support our commitment to high standards of conduct and in fostering a culture of openness, transparency and fairness, in which it is safe and acceptable to raise concerns, ESB encourages and expects employees and others to report concerns relating to a wrongdoing in the workplace and elsewhere relating to ESB’s operations.

The Protected Disclosures Act 2014 aims to provide a comprehensive suite of employment and immunity protections to whistleblowers regarding possible wrongdoing in their workplace . The mechanisms whereby ESB employees and management may raise concerns, or make disclosures in the public interest, in accordance with the Protected Disclosures Act 2014, is outlined in the ESB’s Whistleblowing and Protected Disclosures Policy.
