The final report of a federal parliamentary inquiry has recommended increased legal protection for whistleblowers. Amongst other things, the joint parliamentary committee has proposed establishing a Whistleblower Protection Authority and providing financial payments or "bounties" for people who expose illegal conduct in the public or private sector. Under the proposed bounty system, a whistleblower who had participated in the criminal activity could potentially receive immunity from prosecution rather than a financial reward.
