Protecting your confidentiality
The Whistleblowing Form is designed in such a way that you will remain anonymous, unless you provide your contact details upon submitting the form. Payswix will make no attempts to identify the whistleblower, if the whistleblower has chosen to stay anonymous.

Payswix will ensure that reporting party will not be discriminated against or will suffer any negative consequences as a result of raised concerns.
Note that payswix will never disclose or otherwise reveal the information regarding investigation to any 3rd party, with an exception of Senior Management of payswix.

In such situation your identity will be concealed, unless otherwise mandated by law or regulation.
Note that payswix will not be bound by the confidentiality statements above if the reporting party has provided false information knowingly, or in pursue of defamation of payswix employees’ or Company’s reputation.
Raising your concerns to external parties
