E-services and forms

If you would like to report violations of the provisions of the Whistleblower Act regarding the fact that an employer is failing to comply with its obligations to maintain internal channels and procedures for reporting and follow-up – whistleblowing – under the Act on special protection for workers against reprisals for whistleblowing (SFS 2021:890), please send your tip to arbetsmiljoverket@av.se. Type “Report on shortcomings in internal channels” in the subject line.

arbetsmiljoverket@av.se

For instance, your report may state that

  • the employer has no internal channels for reporting grievances, i.e. whistleblowing channels
  • the person appointed to deal with the whistleblowing reports is not to be regarded as independent and autonomous
  • there is no written documentation describing the internal channel for reporting any grievances or how to report and follow up on grievances, or
  • there are shortcomings in the accessibility of the internal reporting channels.
