Reporting is providing information about serious wrongdoing that you have become aware of at your workplace/ place of study. Reporting is about notifying concerning what you believe to be the discovery of breaches of laws and regulations, breaches of ethical norms or serious conditions which might harm individuals, the university, cooperative partners, or society as a whole.
According to The Working Environment Act § 2-4, employees have the right and, in some cases, duty to report wrongdoing at the institution, such as when there is a danger posed to life and health.
Examples of situations where employees need to speak out:
Defects or shortcomings which could lead to a danger posed to life or health
Breaches of professional and research-oriented ethical guidelines
When fellow students or colleagues are bullied, harassed (including sexual harassment) or discriminated against in connection with their work at UIA
Drug use or other forms of problematic addiction (AKAN)
Activities which could damage property or infrastructure
Reporting regarding conditions which are only of internal or personal interest, for example internal personal conflicts in which the employee can be considered to be a part of the conflict, shall be dealt with in accordance with UIA’s guidelines for managing conflict.
