Hootsworth’s Questions & Answers

If I raise a concern, will that make me more of a target?


There is no single answer to your question. It all depends on the situation and the persons involved. And your employer will likely take steps to guard your identity if possible.

However, one thing is clear. Staying quiet doesn’t make you somehow invincible or invisible. So the better course is raise concerns if you have them. Early and appropriate intervention can make all the difference.
