You can make a difference - Blow the whistle!

We want to do everything we can to detect any misconduct in our workplace at an early stage. Your commitment is an important part of that work.

Security and anonymity are of the utmost importance to us, and your report will be encrypted and no IP addresses can be tracked. Therefore, you can feel safe in sharing your information.

Is my case a whistleblowing case?

The whistleblowing service should be used to report information concerning serious misconduct relating to the company’s or the group’s vital interests or the lives or health of individuals. Remember that you don’t need to have proof that your report is true. It is sufficient that you submit your report in good faith and that you have reason to believe that there may be grounds for your concerns or suspicions. However, you are not allowed to lie or intentionally provide false information in your report. As a rule, information that only concerns your personal work situation, for example dissatisfaction with your salary or some other such situation at work, does not constitute a whistleblowing case.

How do I submit my report?

You submit your written report by clicking on ”Create a report”. If you wish to submit your report verbally, you can click on ”Other ways to whistleblow” to see more options. In your written report you have the possibility to choose whether you want to provide your contact details or remain completely anonymous. Follow the instructions in the form. When you have submitted your report, an ID and password will be displayed on the screen. It is important that you save the ID and password so that you have the possibility to log in and follow your report. As we do not log any information about you, this is the only way we can communicate with you. You will receive a message from us in the login-controlled follow-up function within 7 days. We encourage whistleblowers to primarily use our internal reporting channels as described above. It is also possible to submit a report externally to a public authority. If you wish to submit a report externally in Sweden, the Swedish government has appointed various public authorities that you can contact, depending on the nature and content of your report. Examples of these include the Swedish Work Environment Authority, the Swedish Tax Agency and the Swedish Competition Authority. You can also submit your report to an EU institution, body or agency if the report relates to EU law. More information about how to submit a report to an external public authority is available from each individual public authority or EU institution/agency.

Individuals included in the list under the question above are protected by law. The employer to which the report relates may not take reprisals due to the fact that a report has been submitted. You are entitled to claim damages from the person who subjects you to reprisals due to the fact that you have submitted a report. Please note, however, that you are not protected by law if you, by sounding the alarm, are guilty of a crime. As a whistleblower you are also protected in the form of discharge from liability, which means that you cannot be held legally responsible for breaching a duty of confidentiality. However, this does not apply if you disclose a document or breach a qualified duty of confidentiality. Such a duty of confidentiality takes precedence over the constitutional freedom of information. An example of this is a duty of confidentiality within the healthcare service.

An investigator will confirm that your report has been received and will then go through the information that you have provided in your report.
