The Policy should be used:
- to encourage reporting of suspected wrongdoing as soon as possible, in the knowledge that concerns will be taken seriously and investigated as appropriate;
- to provide guidance as to how to raise concerns; and
- to reassure employee that they can raise genuine concerns without fear of reprisal.
