Whistle-blowing Policies for HR Professionals

Learn best practices for implementing effective whistle-blower protection policies and avoiding pitfalls when handling whistle-blowing complaints.

When an employee complaint is whistle-blowing it is not always clear, and mishandling the complaint, or failing to adequately protect the complainant from retaliation, may lead to poor employee morale and costly litigation. This topic will assist you in properly identifying and handling whistle-blower complaints. The material covered will provide tips and best practices for drafting and implementing effective whistle-blower protection policies and identify key considerations to minimize and mitigate risks when handling whistle-blowing complaints.
