Reporting internal misconduct, or even suspicions of such, may be high threshold for an employee. If the report can’t be done anonymously, it may endanger the whistleblowers legal protection and the threshold for whistleblowing may rise.
Protecting the identity of the whistleblower
Practical violations and suspicions of misconducts are perceived in all levels of the organization. Therefore all customers, employees and stakeholders should be encouraged to report and blow the whistle when needed.
However, the person behind the complaint may face problems if their identity is revealed. They can face discrimination or even retaliation. In order to avoid this situation, whistleblower must be given the opportunity to write the report fully anonymous.
