Complaint and Whistle Blowing
Is this a complaint or whistle blowing? There is a real difference.
A “complaint” is when someone says that they have been poorly treated for some reason. They will have a personal interest in the outcome.
When someone “blows the whistle”, they are raising a concern with their employer, a regulator, customers or the police about wrongdoing, risk or malpractice in their workplace. They rarely have a personal interest in the issue and they are usually just alerting others.
Please use the most appropriate means of telling us about your concerns.
