Public Interest Disclosure

PIDA protects Government of Saskatchewan employees who make a disclosure of wrongdoing in good faith, that occurred in their workplace.
What is a “wrongdoing”?
• acts or omissions that create substantial and specific danger to life, health, safety or the environment;
• gross mismanagement of public funds or a public asset; and
• knowingly directing or counselling someone to commit a wrongdoing of these kinds.
