Why does your organisation need a robust Whistle Blowing Facility?

The most common method of detecting fraud or breaches of integrity within an organisation is by tip-off's. These are a major source to identify and eliminate wrong doing. Whilst you may have excellent internal reporting systems, on occasions, personnel may feel uncomfortable using them. It is recognised that an independent external provider can overcome employee's concerns. Which may include;

  • Lack of organisational support.
  • Fear that nothing will happen and they may not be taken seriously.
  • Recent surveys indicate that a large proportion of staff feel they couldn't safely report misconduct within their organisation.
  • Lack of anonymity.
  • They face difficult choices to come forward with a fear of reprisals.
  • Inadequate or inappropriate internal reporting procedures.

We provide an independent service for relevant persons to report concerns, including those that do not wish to disclose their identity.

Detecting fraud saves money and reduces the possibilities of reputational damage.

Robust Fraud Prevention procedures help increase the confidence of investors, partners and others connected with your business.

To demonstrate your organisation is committed to preventing bribery & corruption and therefore increase the likelihood of a successful defence if faced with prosecution under the Bribery Act 2010 for 'failing to prevent bribery'.

Many organisations have a Whistle Blowing hotline but this is often manned by individuals known to the Whistle Blower, In general these types of hotlines are rarely used.

Protection for Whistle Blowers

The Public Disclosure Act 1998 allows employees to voice concerns in good faith about misconduct and malpractice without receiving penalties such as dismissal, victimisation, or denial of promotion, facilities or training opportunities. Almost all workers in the public, private, and voluntary sectors including contractors are protected under this Act. Certain types of disclosures as listed below qualify for protection if they are made in good faith and it is reasonable to believe that the misconduct was occurring now, happened in the past or will likely happen in the future.

  • A criminal offence
  • Failure to comply with legal obligations
  • A miscarriage of justice
  • Danger to health or safety of any individual
  • Damage to the environment
  • Attempt to cover up information that would provide evidence that any of these five practices occurred
