The types of misconduct that can be reported under the whistleblower protections include:
- Harassment, discrimination, bullying or any other form of unacceptable behaviour

- Victimising someone for making a disclosure
- Fraudulent, illegal, corrupt, or dishonest conduct.

- Violates the law or any legal code.
- Conduct which is detrimental to Access Group Solutions or any of its related entities and could cause financial or non-financial loss.
- Whistleblowers can choose to remain anonymous when making a whistleblower report. If you do not consent to being identified, your identity will not be disclosed unless the disclosure is required by law or if it is necessary to prevent a serious threat to a person’s health or safety.
