By having a clear channel for complaints, the ICC aims to create an environment where employees feel comfortable reporting issues and confident that they will be taken seriously.

This ensures a fair and impartial process for both the complainant and the respondent. The committee aims to reach a resolution that is just and appropriate for the situation.

This can help to prevent future incidents and empower employees to speak up if they experience inappropriate behaviour.
