The City of Edmonton is committed to creating and maintaining a vibrant, healthy, safe and respectful workplace for all employees.

Every employee has a shared responsibility to create and maintain a respectful workplace, where you can do your best work.
Safe Disclosure Office
Reaching out can be hard, but we are here to listen.
The Safe Disclosure Office promotes and facilitates fair process, and is a place for employees to reach out and discuss workplace matters related to harassment, discrimination, and respectful behaviour matters. It assesses and makes decisions on individual files independently of City Administration, however it reports administratively to Employee Services. The Safe Disclosure Office does not act as an advocate for any party, conduct investigations, or substantiate allegations.
The Safe Disclosure Office Adviser will:
- Listen to your workplace matter
- Decide if the matter appears to not be in alignment with the Respectful Workplace Directive
- Direct your matter for action as appropriate
- Identify other resources that may be available
