    Online Training: Whistleblowing, Reporting & Retaliation Course Overview

    Online Training Curriculum

    Mitigate skyrocketing whistleblower and retaliation risk

    NAVEX’s Whistleblowing, Reporting and Retaliation course teaches employees why they should report complaints internally, and educates managers on how to properly handle complaints. Learners explore your organisation’s specific reporting procedures, the obligation to speak up and the rules against retaliation.

    New laws and recent cases have changed both the breadth and scope of whistleblower protections and retaliation claims. Dodd-Frank’s controversial bounty hunter programme threatens internal reporting systems, incenting employees to report directly to the government. The U.S. Supreme Court has been actively expanding retaliation protections, which is already the number one claim filed with the EEOC. Our training course can help your organisation to mitigate these risks and establish powerful legal defenses.

    One Course —Three Powerful Training Segments

    • Part One educates managers and employees on the importance of making an internal complaint. Delivered in a familiar television news show format, this section puts lessons into a vivid, real-world context, teaching employees how and when to speak up, and about the rules against retaliation.
    • In Part Two, managers will explore their special responsibilities with an interactive news challenge, sharing information, earning rewards and keeping notes along the way. Managers learn how to spot and properly respond to a complaint, and how to prevent and address suspected retaliation.
    • Part Three highlights your whistleblower and retaliation policies with our innovative Policy in ActionTM tool. Learners search your policies to find answers to your custom interactive questions.
