“Whistle Blowing” – Confidential Hotline

The Public Information Act recommends that companies offer employees an independent confidential ‘Hotline’ where they can ‘blow the whistle’ and bring issues of concern to the top management of companies, anonymously and without fear of reprisal.

The benefits of utilising this ‘whistleblowing’ facility are:

  • Identify underlying problems, which may not have come to light by other means.
  • It is an accountable process.
  • Evidences a corporate responsibility towards the welfare and security of all stakeholders in the business.

We offer our clients a choice of services including:

  • Reviewing your existing ‘whistleblowing’ policy or drafting a new policy to meet your business requirements.
  • Communication of your ‘whistleblowing’ policy which will include:
    1. Entity responsible for the confidential hotline
    2. The purpose and fields of activity covered
    3. The roles and responsibilities of persons handling communications
    4. The rights of the people identified via the confidential hotline service
