He also says that employees should be encouraged to participate in the confidential interviews and that the third party doing the review should make it easy for employees to come forward.

Mirko Bibic said Bell Media’s vice-president of news, Michael Melling, has been the subject of “various allegations” and is on leave pending the outcome of the workplace review.

Leblanc says for the review to be effective, transparency is imperative, which includes presenting the findings and conclusions to employees at the end of the process.
