Organizations must evaluate their whistle-blowing reporting process and assess whether it is accessible to all employees (e.g., those without laptops, those with poor English language skills or those with disabilities, such as hearing or visual impairment). Whistle-blowing teams should be conscious of the increased risk that cases may be raised as a protective measure against operational change and redundancy resulting from the COVID-19 crisis. The risk is that any employment termination action after a whistle-blowing case is raised may appear to be in direct response to the action of whistle-blowing. Cases should be clearly documented and performed in line with agreed procedures.
We perform detailed and impartial investigation based on the whistle blower allegations reported to the organization. Fraud investigation will be conducted which includes review of relevant records and other documentary evidences, and interviews of appropriate personnel.
