The most reliable method to identify occupational fraud schemes in public and private sector enterprise is a tip from a whistleblower. The best tips come from your employees. To leverage these tips you need an effective and reliable mechanism in place to receive the disclosure, investigate thoroughly, and protect your whistleblower from reprisals.
In 2012, Alberta enacted the Public Interest Disclosure (Whistleblower Protection) Act. This legislation compels all government departments, offices of the Legislature, and public entities to have policies and procedures in place to develop a compliance regime, receive employee disclosures, investigate alleged wrongdoings, protect whistleblowers from reprisals, and submit certain annual reports to the Commissioner. A public entity is any provincial agency, board, commission, or Crown corporation.
