At are-able, we are committed to maintaining the highest standards of ethics, integrity, and transparency in all aspects of our operations. We value and appreciate the important role whistleblowers play in helping us identify and address any misconduct, unethical behaviour, or violations of laws or regulations within our organisation.
Confidentiality and protection of whistleblowers are of utmost importance to us. Whistleblowers can choose to remain anonymous by completing the online Whistleblower Form, however providing your contact details can help us to seek further clarification, or to update you on the progress of the investigation. As always, the choice is up to you.
Please note that this form is intended for serious concerns and should not be used for general inquiries, feedback, or unrelated matters. For any non-whistleblower related inquiries, please check out our feedback form Are-able Feedback.
Before submitting your report, we kindly ask you to carefully consider the following:
- Provide detailed and accurate information: Include relevant details about the incident, individuals involved (if known), dates, times, and locations. But please don’t try to conduct your own investigation, as this may risk the integrity of any subsequent investigations.
- Be objective and factual: Stick to the facts and avoid speculation or personal opinions. It is important to present a clear picture of the issue to facilitate a thorough investigation.
- False reporting: Submitting false information or making malicious allegations is strictly prohibited and may result in disciplinary actions.
Retaliation: are-able strictly prohibits any form of retaliation against individuals who make a whistleblower report. If you believe you have experienced retaliation for whistleblowing, or fear potential retaliation, please indicate it in your submission.
Thank you for your commitment to maintaining the highest standards at are-able. Your integrity and courage in speaking up play a crucial role in creating a safe and ethical work environment for everyone. We assure you that all reports will be investigated promptly and impartially, and be treated with the utmost seriousness.
If you have any questions or need further assistance about this process (without providing details of a specific claim) please contact our Whistleblower Process Officer on 5564 1904.
