Answered By: 
The Mayor

Transport for London (TfL) advises employees to raise any concerns relating to their work or relationships with colleagues with their line manager. 

TfL is developing employee communications to reinforce this message and assure staff that, if they have concerns about a colleague being influenced by extremist ideology, to discuss this with their line manager or another senior manager, who will take appropriate action. All concerns raised will be dealt with in a way that protects the identity of the employee who raised them.

Alternatively, SafeLine is a confidential and independent reporting service that allows TfL staff, agency staff and contractors to raise concerns they feel cannot be reported through internal channels.  SafeLine is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and reports can be anonymous if requested.
