Protection For Whistleblower
A whistleblower who wishes to report improper conduct will be accorded with the protection of confidentiality of the identity, to the extent reasonably practicable, provided that the disclosure is made in good faith. Such protection is accorded even if the investigation later reveals that the whistleblower is mistaken as to the facts and the rules and procedures involved.
A whistleblower may even choose to remain anonymous when whistleblowing.
Any party that retaliates against the whistleblower who has reported a concern in good faith may be subjected to appropriate action by the organisation, up to and including legal action, where applicable.
The whistleblower can expect that the report will be treated seriously, fairly and promptly. Upon the completion of the whistleblowing investigation, the Whistleblower may be notified of the outcome of the disclosure, if deemed appropriate.
