Public Servants Disclosure Protection Act

The Public Servants Disclosure Protection Act requires that federal departments maintain an environment in which public servants may disclose allegations of wrongdoing and be protected from reprisal for having made a disclosure in good faith. The Act aims at providing support to public servants disclosing allegations of wrongdoing and at protecting them against reprisal. It also establishes a fair and objective process for those against whom allegations are made.
