Reporting of violations of laws or ethical standards at NHH

Reporting of violations of laws or ethical standards at NHH

If you as a student or employee have concerns about possible violations of laws or ethical standards, for example bullying, harassment, discrimination, dishonesty, scientific or financial fraud, it is important to speak up.

Reporting for students

We encourage you to report or file a complaint if you experience, observe or suspect any illegal, harmful or unethical conditions at NHH. Speak up about your learning environment!

You can report to Vice Rector for Academic Affairs Linda Nøstbakken and Senior Advisor Jorun Gunnerud using the email stud.reporting@nhh.no.

Students can also report directly to Linda Nøstbakken

Reporting for employees

If you discover illegal, harmful or unethical conditions at NHH it is important that you report it.

You can report to HR Director Elise Kongsvik and Vice Rector for Faculty Affairs and HR, Gunnar E. Christensen using the email reporting@nhh.no

As an employee you can also report to your immediate leader, safety representative, employee representative or Rector Øystein Thøgersen.

ANONYMOUS REPORTING

To file an anonymous report, send a letter or make a call to

  • Vice Rector for Academic Affairs Linda Nøstbakken (for students)
  • Vice Rector Gunnar E. Christensen (for employees)

Anonymous reports are usually more difficult to handle. Nonetheless, we will do our best to look into the reported matter. 

What happens if you report

Your report should include:

  • your name
  • description of what you suspect, have experienced or observed
  • place, date and time of the incident
  • other witnesses

We always confirm that we received your report as soon as possible. We then thoroughly investigate your report in a strictly confidential manner.

The accused person is entitled to know about the allegations and the substance of the case, and to present their version. Thus, in most cases the process will reveal the idenity of the victim and the whistle-blower. 

If the investigation concludes that something illegal, unethical or harmful has happened, NHH takes appropriate actions to prevent and correct the situation. 

Retaliation against those speaking up is prohibited and may result in further action.
