Whistleblowing Policy STEP

Whistleblowing Whistleblower: For the purposes of this PSEA Policy a whistleblower is a type of complainant, not the survivor, who is making a report of SEA. STEP encourages staff to report concerns or suspicions of misconduct by colleagues and will ensure protection from retaliation for reporting. Principle of Confidentiality applies to whistleblowers as they would to any complainant, and STEP shall protect whistleblowers on SEA from retaliation, so long as the report is made in good faith and in compliance with STEP’s PSEA policies.
