What do you do with a whistleblower's message?
Let us monitor and screen messages
It’s always best to let someone outside of the company receive and screen messages.
It doesn’t make sense for cases that may involve management to be investigated by management.
Monitoring and screening
We advise how the company should handle the case
We offer a 24/7 solution
where we monitor your whistleblower scheme and screen the alerts that whistleblowers send
1. Reports are received from the whistleblower system
2. What is the case about?
3. Immediate legal issues
4. A report is drafted with a preliminary review of the case alongside recommendations about the next steps
Can one independently investigate oneself?
Our answer is No! You need an independent examination conducted by experts
A report from a whistleblower may concern a member of management. Does it make sense if the report ends up with the management team? Legally there is nothing wrong with the HR manager or someone else at management level receiving reports from a whistleblower, but it is not really appropriate.
What if the report is about financial crime or sexual harassment? Does the company have the right competencies to handle such cases?
We can advise the company and handle whisteblower reports. The whistleblower is entitled to 100% discretion and must be confident that their reports are taken seriously.
If employees are to feel safe using the scheme, it is not appropriate for reports to be received by someone within the organisation who may be directly or indirectly involved in the case.
We have specialist staff who are experts in handling whistleblower reports. We perform an immediate legal assessment, decide the most appropriate person to proceed with the case (e.g. the chairperson of the board) and we put together the right team.
