Legislative Committee Invites Input on the Public Interest Disclosure (Whistleblower Protection) Act
EDMONTON – The Standing Committee on Resource Stewardship is reviewing the Public Interest Disclosure (Whistleblower Protection) Act.
“This legislation outlines a process for disclosing concerns about wrongdoings that may be unlawful, dangerous to the public or injurious to the public interest, and it provides protection of employees from reprisal,” said David Hanson, MLA,
Bonnyville-Cold Lake-St. Paul and chair of the committee. “Our goal is to review the Act, hear different perspectives from Albertans and report to the Assembly any recommendations for amendments to this very important legislation.”
The Standing Committee on Resource Stewardship is inviting public input from interested parties in the form of written submissions by 4:30 p.m. November 30, 2020. Please note that submissions and the names of submitters may be made public.
