Report an integrity case

Do you suspect that an IND staff member is acting without integrity? Or have you experienced undesirable behaviour? Then you can report this to the Integrity Office of the IND.

When to report an integrity case

We expect our employees to beindependent, professional and to handle their work with care. This means they stick to their agreements and treat our applicants with respect. And that they comply with the laws, rules and behavioural norms.  Do you suspect that an IND employee does not act with integrity? Let us know by reporting an integrity case.

The following situations are examples of acting without integrity:

  • An employee has checked certain databases when this was unnecessary or not allowed.
  • An employee has giving information to persons that were not entitled to this information.
  • An employee commits fraud. For example by consciously approving an application while it was not correct to do so.
  • An employee steals, wastes or misuses property of the IND.
  • An employee has other positions, connections or activities that do not fit with their work for the IND because of conflicts of interest.
  • An employee displays undesirable behaviour. For example: aggression, violence, discrimination, (sexual) intimidation, bullying, stalking.
