How to report suspicion of discrimination and/or harassment
Turn to someone att your department
If you have information of suspected discrimination and/or some form of harassment, you should should turn to your department to give information about a suspected case of discrimination or harassment.
If you don't know who to turn to, you can contact your Head of Department. You can also contact another employee at the University. This person is then required to inform the Head of Department.
Remember that if you speak to a study counsellor, you need to express clearly that they may break their duty of professional secrecy and are allowed to inform the Head of Department.
If you want to remain anonymous
The University of Gothenburg always recommends that you make a report where it is clear who is making the report. It may feel reassuring to report the incident anonymously. However, anonymous reports will make it challenging for the University to investigate what has happened. Sometimes the person responsible for the investigation may need to talk to you, or others, to collect more information about what has happened.
No person at the University is allowed to impact you negatively because you have made a report. This is referred to as a non-retaliation policy (repressalieförbud) according to the Discrimination Act (diskrimineringslagen). If you believe yourself to be the subject of reprisals, you should notify the University of this.
