Allegations from Whistleblowers

Whistleblowing is an intentional disclosure of information about critical and essential activities, which involve unethical, unlawful, threatening, or biased malpractice executed by current or former staff member(s). Whistleblowing also rounds up any offensive or infringing misconduct. Bentham Science has strict rules and regulations regarding the whistleblower allegations. Any concerned whistleblower allegation will be treated equally as any external complaint. Bentham’s Ethics Advisory Panel will pass the verdict and detail necessary measures via email after a careful review and analysis of the allegation.
