Whistleblowing is a way for a worker to report wrongdoing in the public interest. Forms of wrongdoing include criminal offences, miscarriages of justice or where someone’s health and safety is in danger.
Our new whistleblowing policy provides guidance on what to do if you have a concern that falls into one of these areas.
Our standards of conduct, performance and ethics say that registrants must report concerns about safety.
The whistleblowing policy outlines:
- what whistleblowing is;
- how whistleblowers are protected in law;
- how to raise concerns; and
- where to find more information on whistleblowing.
Protect (formerly Public Concern at Work) is the leading authority on whistleblowing and provides confidential advice for individuals who wish to raise concerns.
