The Guide

Preventing Whistleblowing Victimisation: A practical guide for employers 
sets out insightful advice for employers of all sizes and across all sectors on how to prevent retaliation against whistleblowers in their organisations. It was developed through meetings with a roundtable of leading employers from across different sectors, sharing tried and tested ideas about innovative practice.

It also provides practical steps employers can take to prevent and respond to victimisation at every stage of the whistleblowing process. This spans from the moment a whistleblower reports a concern to the conclusion of the investigation process and beyond. It also covers ways of developing the culture and policies that need to be in place to ensure your workplace is somewhere staff feel they can raise concerns without fear of retaliation.

The guide uses real-life case studies of innovative practice put in place by different organisations, to illustrate how these ideas can be put into action, and also includes an example risk assessment. We hope the guide will be an invaluable resource in the work of protecting whistleblowers against retaliation, which will benefit both whistleblowers and employers alike.
