Best Practices for Protecting Whistleblowers: Implementing a Retaliation Response System Mobile App
Retaliation against employees who report issues is all too common.
How does it work?
Retaliation against whistleblowers usually stems from prior management failures to address issues that employees believe are important or that they otherwise believe they have an obligation to report. An effective retaliation response system should include an independent complaint review process and an independent reporting line that can reach the employer’s board or oversight body, if necessary. The system must include clearly defined roles, responsibilities, and expectations for top leaders, board members, managers at all levels, employees, compliance and legal staff, and HR and labor relations staffs. The procedures should be known and accessible to all.
The suggestions in the Best Practices for Protecting Whistleblowers: Implementing a Retaliation Response System mobile app are presented in a generic form, adaptable to most workplaces, but must be adjusted to variables like size, history, and applicable law.
