UKRI Whistleblowing - ‘Freedom To Speak Up’ Policy encourages and enables employees to speak out when they encounter or suspect malpractice. No one who raises a genuine concern about malpractice will be at risk of losing their job or suffering any form of retribution or detriment as a result of doing this.
This Policy applies to all employees of UKRI. It also protects those workers who are on secondment, pursuing a doctoral degree, on a temporary contract or employed through an agency, an independent consultant, and contractors or suppliers of services to UKRI. Members of the public may also raise an issue through this Policy.
