Leiden University considers it important that possible wrongdoings within the organisation can be safely reported, and has therefore drawn up the Regulations on Whistleblowers. Whistleblowing can be defined as the disclosure by an employee or student of Leiden University of suspicions of illegal or immoral practices that are taking place under the university's responsibility and in which an important interest of the general public or the institution is at stake.
The purpose of these regulations is therefore to offer legal protection to the employees and students concerned and to offer the opportunity to seriously investigate a possible wrongdoing within the organisation.
