Epworth is committed to fostering a culture of ethical behaviour and good governance. Whistleblowing, the act of raising concerns about misconduct within an organisation, is a key element of any governance system’s transparency and accountability framework.
Persons, including but not limited to employees, volunteers, contractors and suppliers who detect or have reasonable grounds for suspecting improper conduct associated with Epworth can raise concerns in good faith under the Epworth’s Whistleblower Policy and Protocol without being subject to victimisation, harassment or discriminatory treatment by Epworth or its staff, and may choose to raise concerns on an anonymous basis.
Epworth’s Whistleblower Policy and Protocol is comprised of two parts.
Part 1 outlines the policy and Part 2 sets out the protocol on how protected disclosures are received, handled and investigated.
