Important to know: What happens when you report risks
- We will not send you a confirmation email after you have submitted your report. In the last step of the service, you will be given confirmation that your report has been submitted.
- We read all of the reports we receive. We then assess whether we can and should take action on the reported matter.
- Some of the reports we receive result in us contacting or inspecting the workplace, but not all do. For example, neither the Work Environment Act nor our regulations relate to issues regarding redress for an individual who has been subjected to abusive treatment or discrimination.
- You do not need to report the same incident several times. Multiple reports of the same incident will not result in us giving a specific matter higher priority.
- We are not able to provide you updates regarding the measures we have taken as a result of your report.
Your whistleblowing report may be disclosed
If the whistleblowing report relates to your own workplace, it is subject to confidentiality and we will not disclose information about the report*. When asked, we always state that we can neither confirm nor deny that a report has been made. Confidentiality also applies if you are reporting in your capacity as the guardian of a minor child.
If your whistleblowing report does not relate to your own workplace, the report is only subject to confidentiality in exceptional cases. This means that the report and related information may be disclosed if someone asks for access to it.
Remember not to provide us with information that could be harmful to Swedish security pursuant to the Protective Security Act (2018:585).
