    I suspect a colleague is domestically abusing his wife at home. I am his line manager at work. Should I tell HR or submit an anonymous report to social services?

    I think you should make a list of the reason why you have your suspicions and decide whether you think you should tell HR. Because it would be embarrassing on your behalf to accuse this worker of something so serious to then find out it's not true. I'm not defending them at all, but you need to be very careful with something like this. Maybe make your list and ask someone outside of your workplace what they think? Obviously don't drop names or make them suspect it's something real, just do it hypothetically, and see what they have to say?

    That is why I was thinking about submitting an anonymous report, then someone with the appropriate experience can decide whether to take it forward.
