Anonymous Fraud Hotline Reporting Service
The need for the service
According to the preamble of the Protected Disclosures Act, No 26 of 2000 (‘Whistle-Blowing Act’), the reason for the enactment of the Act was that:
- Every employee has a responsibility to disclose criminal and any other irregular conduct in the workplace; and
- Every employer has a responsibility to take all necessary steps to ensure that employees who disclose such information are protected from any reprisals as a result of such disclosures.
Understood and applied effectively, this will help to deter and detect wrongdoing and act as an early warning mechanism to prevent impropriety and corruption within the public and private sector.
To this end, an anonymous fraud reporting facility is an indispensable tool in combating unethical behaviour in any organization.
