The text also touches on the fact that these protections apply to not-for-profit organizations as well. Additionally, it notes that Australia's federal whistleblowing laws have not been effective so far and a new era for whistleblowers is set to begin in July 2019.

In Australia, whistleblower protections can be found under the Corporations Act 2001, specifically in Section 1317AAA.

In the United States, the primary legislation for whistleblower protections is the Whistleblower Protection Act (WPA) and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. These Acts define the rights and protections for employees who report violations of law.

This convention sets forth a framework for international cooperation in the fight against corruption, including protection for those who report corrupt practices.
