What happens once I make a report?
After you have made a report, an independent investigation will be launched, led by one of Report It Now’s Protected Disclosure Officers (PDO). They will liaise directly with you and your organisation’s Report It Now™ representative before submitting a full synopsis with recommendations.
Will I be identified?
No, not if you don’t wish to be. Our reporting system allows you to report an incident securely, confidentially and anonymously. You will only be identified if you specifically ask to be.
Will this service cost me?
No, there is no cost to you for reporting an incident.
How long will it take?
Most reports are lodged within one hour. Reports are categorised as either A, B or C. This is determined on the severity of the incident and the level of prioritization that is required. No report will take longer than 48 hours to be lodged. The length of time it takes for the incident to be resolved is dependent on each case.
Will my manager know that I have reported someone?
No. As indicated above, you are able to remain completely anonymous if you wish. Research has shown people are more likely to report fraudulent and dishonest behaviour if they are confident they will be unidentified. Report It Now™ has found this to be the most effective system of reporting.
