Whistleblower protection bill for public-sector workers tabled in Quebec

The Quebec government has tabled a bill aimed at making it easier for whistleblowers in Quebec’s public sector to come forward and report wrongdoing – although the proposed legislation doesn’t cover private-sector employees.

Bill 87 would protect the identity and job of any public employee or former employee who discloses wrongdoing within the government, including within parapublic agencies, Crown corporations and universities.

The bill defines wrongdoing as an illegal act, the misuse of funds, a serious breach of ethics, an act or omission that compromises health or safety and gross mismanagement.
