FP Logue associate, Sandra Conway, was today appointed to the Board of Directors of the Transparency Legal Advice Centre (TLAC).
TLAC is Ireland’s only independent law centre specialising in providing free, independent legal advice and referral services to anyone making disclosures of wrongdoing. TLAC was established by Transparency International Ireland following the introduction of the 2014 Protected Disclosures Act which has lead to a substantial increase in the volume of people reporting concerns arising in the course of their work.
Transparency International Ireland continues to support public bodies to create a supportive work environment for employees, including sign-posting the facilities offered by TLAC to public sector employees and continues to operate the Speak Up helpline providing support to witnesses, whistleblowers and victims of corruption and other wrongdoing. Since 2011 it has provided information and referral services to over 900 people.
Sandra volunteered with the Speak Up helpline in 2011 as it launched before joining the business integrity initiative at Transparency International Ireland until Jan 2014. She is delighted by the developments within the organisation and proud to support TLAC as a member of the Board.
FP Logue welcomes Sandra’s appointment to TLAC since it fits with the firm’s commitment to transparency and the protection of people who expose corruption and wrongdoing.
