Our whistleblowing policy gives individuals the chance to speak out if they experience or suspect any bad behaviour or bad practice at work. If anyone raises a genuine concern, they will not risk losing their job or suffering any retribution as a result.
Who is protected
As well as all UKRI employees, the policy also protects workers who are:
- on secondment
- pursuing a doctoral degree
- on a temporary contract
- employed through an agency
- independent consultants
- suppliers of services to UKRI
Members of the public can also raise an issue through this policy.
