Whistleblower Policy

The Fund’s Whistleblower Policy is an important element in detecting corrupt, illegal or other undesirable conduct. The Fund strongly encourages you to speak up if you suspect or witness any matters of concern. The policy describes the protections available to whistleblowers, what matters are reportable, how you can report your concerns without fear of victimization, and how you will be supported and protected.

The full policy can be found below

Who is a Whistleblower?

A Whistleblower is someone who discloses Reportable Conduct as defined on page 2 of this Policy.

What is Reportable Conduct?

Reportable Conduct is anything that you have reasonable grounds to suspect, in relation to Fund, is a misconduct, or an improper state of affairs. Some reportable acts are also listed on page 2 of the policy.

What should I include in the report?

  • Description of offence
  • Date on which the reporter became aware of the offence
  • Name of the person suspected of the offence
  • Action taken before filing a complaint or allegations (if any)

Identity Protection

All complaints will be treated in a strictly confidential and sensitive manner as per the Fund’s Whistleblower policy.

How do I make a Whistleblower Report?

There are two options available.

  • By email. You may send a whistleblower report via email to the dedicated email address tfalert@teachersfund.org.gh.
