TO WHOM YOU CAN RAISE A CONCERN
Generally, your immediate supervisor is in the best position to resolve a compliance concern quickly. However, your supervisor is not your only option. Other channels include:
- Immediate Supervisor or Manager
- Head of Department or Director
- Grievance Committee
YOU MAY RAISE A CONCERN VERBALLY OR IN WRITING. IF YOU PREFER, YOU MAY DO SO ANONYMOUSLY.
Your Obligation to Raise Compliance Concerns:
- Raising a compliance concern in good faith protects the University community, our University, our colleagues and our stakeholders.
- If you have a concern about compliance with University bylaws or policies, you have a responsibility to raise that concern.
Raise a concern early
The longer we wait to address a concern, the worse it may become.
You may remain anonymous
However, if you identify yourself, we are able to follow up with you and provide feedback.
Confidentiality is respected
Your identity and the information you provide will be shared only on a "need-to-know" basis with those responsible for resolving the concern.
University of Sharjah absolutely prohibits retaliation against anyone for raising or helping to address a compliance concern in good faith. Retaliation is a ground for discipline up to and including dismissal.
