Whistleblowing refers to disclosing corrupt, illegal or fraudulent activities committed by organisations. The FCA's whistleblowing rules are mandatory for all deposit takers with over £250m in assets and insurers subject to Solvency II.
These rules impact all managers in the UK and those overseeing UK-based employees. The FCA's rules include training employees on their right to whistleblow, presenting a whistleblowing report annually and appointing a whistleblowers' champion.
Our Whistleblowing for Managers in FS Course explains the value of whistleblowing, your duty to blow the whistle when appropriate and how you are protected for doing so.
