As part of the policy review currently being undertaken by Wikimedia UK, Michael Maggs and I have reviewed the Whistle-blowing Policy and feel that generally it remains fit for purpose. We would like to make the following very minor edits for clarity:

The third paragraph of the introduction to be changed from "The policy document makes it clear that you can do so without fear of victimisation, subsequent discrimination or disadvantage. This whistle-blowing policy is intended to encourage and enable employees to raise serious concerns within the charity rather than overlooking a problem or airing their complaints outside the charity", to "This whistle-blowing policy is intended to encourage and enable employees to raise serious concerns within the charity rather than overlooking a problem or airing their complaints outside the charity; and makes it clear that they can do so without fear of victimisation, subsequent discrimination or disadvantage."

The final paragraph of the 'How to raise a concern' section to be changed from "The complainant has the right to take their complaint direct to the Chief Executive or Chair of Trustees. The Chair has the right to refer the complaint back to the Chief Executive if they feel that s/he without any conflict of interest can more appropriately investigate the complaint" to "The complainant has the right to take their complaint direct to the Chief Executive or Chair of Trustees. The Chair has the right to refer the complaint back to the Chief Executive if they feel that the Chief Executive can more appropriately investigate the complaint without any conflict of interest."

If you have any objections to the above, or indeed any other suggested changes to the policy, please post them here or email me at lucy.crompton-reid@wikimedia.org.uk by Wednesday 7th June.
