Protection of whistle-blowers
All disclosures should be made in good faith, without malice, and when the whistle-blower has reasonable grounds for suspecting that an incident of wrongful practice has occurred.
WSG will not tolerate discrimination, retaliation, or harassment of any kind against a whistle-blower who submits a complaint or report in good faith.
