About us

Pro-Veritas, which is Latin for "Pro-Truth", is a network of professionals from Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States who want to see transparency, honesty and justice enshrined in every workplace, from the largest multinational corporation to the smallest private business.

We are lawyers, university lecturers, schoolteachers, newspaper editors and senior public employees.
  • We believe that, when all the established mechanisms for achieving truth and justice in the workplace fail, then public exposure - "naming and shaming" - is legitimate and desirable.
  • We believe that the prospect of public exposure - the appeal of the aggrieved to the court of public opinion - is the most effective restraint on employers who think that they can trample upon the rights of their employees with impunity.
  • We believe that truth, honesty and justice in the workplace are good for business.

Our rules
We welcome posts in the English language from anywhere in the world. However, please abide by the following simple rules:

    1. Your submission must not violate the law of your own country or the laws of Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States.

    2. You must not libel anyone. If there is any chance that something you want to submit for posting might be construed as libellous, then err on the side of caution and rewrite it to remove any ambiguity.

    3. Always provide brief context and background so that your submission makes sense to people who know nothing about you and little, if anything, about your employer.

    4. Keep your submission brief, no longer than 1000 words.

We look forward to your submissions.
