Whistleblowing policy

Isle of Man Government is committed to the highest levels of openness, integrity and accountability in everything we do. Our Government Code guides our everyday conduct and as part of this, we have a duty to speak up and raise concerns of wrongdoing.

The Whistleblowing Policy describes the protections available to those who raise concerns (Whistleblowers), what matters are reportable, how staff can safely report concerns as well as how they will be protected and supported.
Employees are often the first people to witness any type of wrongdoing within Government. The information that employees may uncover could prevent wrongdoing, which may damage Government’s reputation and/or performance, and could even save people from harm.
Employees are strongly encouraged to raise concerns which fall within the scope of the Whistleblowing Policy, rather than remain silent.
