Whistle-blowing is defined as:
The disclosure by an employee of confidential information, which relates to some danger, fraud or other illegal or unethical conduct connected with the workplace, be it of the employer or of a fellow employee(s).
A whistle blower is not a “sneak” or a “trouble maker” but someone who comes to a decision to express a concern after a great deal of thought. The law only requires that there be a genuine doubt – the individual is not expected to produce unquestionable evidence to support the concern.
We have a whistle blowing policy and procedures to report are in place.
