Ethical Compliance Unit

At the University of Warith Al-Anbiyaa, we recognize that the strength of an ethical community lies in the ability to address concerns transparently and responsibly. Our Reporting and Grievance Mechanism provides a secure, confidential, and accessible platform for all stakeholders, including students, faculty, staff, and community members, to voice concerns or report potential misconduct. Upholding the highest standards of confidentiality, our Ethical Compliance Unit diligently investigates each report, ensuring the protection and anonymity of whistleblowers. In parallel, our Staff Grievance Procedure ensures that employment-related matters are addressed impartially and expeditiously, guaranteeing equitable treatment for all staff members.

Procedure: At the University of Warith Al-Anbiyaa, everyone is encouraged to speak up if they witness any form of bias, mistreatment, or reprisal, regardless of who's involved. If you've experienced such behavior, don't hesitate to share your concerns with your immediate supervisor, a member of the personnel practices committee, HR, or an ombudsman. Prompt reporting is highly valued, as it allows for swift action to address issues and prevent further complications.

Complaints related to prohibited conduct receive serious attention, with thorough investigations that may involve discussions with all parties involved and relevant witnesses. Confidentiality is strictly maintained throughout the process, ensuring fairness and respect.

The university has a strict no-retaliation policy for those who report bias, mistreatment, or reprisal, and any such behavior is met with appropriate disciplinary action.

Recognizing the importance of addressing misconduct, the university takes necessary measures, including training, counseling, warnings, reprimands, pay withholding, reassignment, temporary suspension without pay, or even termination, depending on the circumstances.

However, it's essential to emphasize that false and harmful complaints will not be tolerated. Genuine complaints made in good faith are treated seriously, but any misuse of the reporting process will be subject to disciplinary measures.
