How to submit a report?

The Norwegian Working Environment Act entitles employees to submit reports about censurable conditions or behaviour. Are you an employee and have you experienced harassment, discrimination and errors or deficiencies that could be a danger to life or health? If so, you are also obliged to tell your employer or safety representative. You make your own decisions about how and to whom you will submit your report.
