Whistle-blower and complaint issues 

Sometimes things happen which go beyond what you should experience in the workplace. One example is serious conflicts that go unmanaged and where the strain on both those involved and the surrounding people becomes too much. Some experience being yelled at by colleagues or being managed in ways that violate their integrity and dignity. Others might experience bullying and harassment. Fortunately, this is not commonplace in most people's workday, but it can be quite serious for those who are affected.

The Working Environment Act prohibits harassment and other improper conduct in the workplace. If allegations of such actions emerge through a complaint or whistle-blowing, the employer is obliged to investigate the allegations. At this point, it is important to ensure that this is done in a competent way that protects both the complainant and the accused.
