It can be quite daunting for an employee to blow the whistle on someone at work, especially if it is someone in authority that they have an issue with.
(PRWEB UK) 16 May 2013
According to the BBC News article: workplace whistle-blowers ‘ignored’ survey suggests, 60% of whistle-blowers who voice fears about their workplace receive no response from their managers. Also, the charity Public Concern at Work said that 1,000 whistle-blowers it questioned, 19% were disciplined of demoted after speaking up and a further 15% were dismissed altogether.
The BBC News article went on to say that Public Concern at Work provided further evidence that 74% of those questioned reported that nothing was done about alleged wrongdoing they raised and 60% received no response at all.
Cathy James, chief executive of Public Concern at Work, said whistle-blowers were "often ignored, or worse, discouraged, ostracised or victimised".
Private Investigator Swansea are often approached by employees and businesses alike to investigate instances at work that involve other employees or important members of staff who are suspected of misconduct. Investigators are able to look into situations within the workplace to discover the truth behind the suspicions. These investigations can include hidden cameras, listening devices and covert surveillance operations and in some extreme circumstances undercover operatives who can pose as fellow workers over a period of time.
Spokesperson from Private Investigator Swansea, Charlotte Kelly said:
“It can be quite daunting for an employee to blow the whistle on someone at work, especially if it is someone in authority that they have an issue with. In my professional opinion having a professional and independent investigation is the best route to follow.”
