CIÉ Protected Disclosures - Policy & Procedure
In compliance with Section 21(1) of the Protected Disclosures Act 2014 (being that section as it stood before the commencement of section 28 of the Protected Disclosures (Amendment) Act 2022), Bus Éireann, as part of the CIE Group of companies, must establish and publish internal procedures to allow any employee of the company make a protected disclosure under the Act.
The Protected Disclosures Act 2014 provides for a framework of statutory protections for whistle-blowers in Ireland. The Act has been substantially overhauled by the Protected Disclosures (Amendment) Act 2022, which was signed into law in July 2022. The new legislation came into operation on 1 January 2023.
This policy will be kept under review and will be updated in line with government guidelines and changes in relevant legislation.
TUARASCÁIL BHLIANTÚIL Ó BHUS ÉIREANN MAIDIR LE NOCHTADH COSANTA DON BHLIAIN 2022
DE RÉIR AN ACHTA UM NOCHTADH COSANTA (LEASÚ) 2022
Faoin Acht, tá gá le chomhlachtaí poiblí tuarascáil bhliantúil a ullmhú agus a fhoilsiú tráth nach déanaí ná an 30 Meitheamh gach bliain i ndáil leis an mbliain díreach roimhe, ar tuarascáil í ina leagtar amach an líon nochtaí cosanta a fuarthas sa bhliain roimhe agus an gníomh a rinneadh ina leith (má rinneadh aon ghníomh). Níor cheart do dhaoine bheith in ann an tuarascáil sin a úsáid chun daoine a bhfuil nochtadh cosanta déanta acu a shainaithint.
Is í seo an tuarascáil bhliantúil ó Bhus Éireann. Cumhdaítear inti an tréimhse ón 1 Eanáir 2022 go dtí an 31 Nollaig 2022.
Chun an oibleagáid dhlíthiúil sin a chomhlíonadh, deimhníonn Bus Éireann go bhfuair sé gan aon nochtadh cosanta sa bhliain 2022.
