Whistleblowing Policy

  • We stand for integrity
  • We encourage reporting violations of our code of conduct
  • No negative consequences for reporting

EU DIRECTIVE ON WHISTLE-BLOWERS

  • Reports must be able to be made orally as well as in writing and in a confidential (anonymous) manner.
  • They should be made available to employees as well as to customers, suppliers and other business partners.
  • Reporters should receive confirmation of the receipt of their report within 7 days.
  • The organisation must provide a detailed response within three months.
  • Reversed burden of proof: where previously the whistleblower had to prove that he or she suffered disadvantage as a result of his or her report, under the new legislation the employer must demonstrate that an adverse decision regarding an employee, post-report, is not the result of whistleblowing.
