Code of Conduct can lead to immediate disciplinary action, up to and including termination. Thus, it is your responsibility to report any and all behaviors that you know, or suspect, to be in violation of Applicable Laws or this Code of Conduct.
To report Compliance issues, you are obliged to follow this process:
Complete the Code of Conduct Reporting Form attached to this document. If you do not have a form available to you, you can ask the Compliance Officer to provide one to you.
Give the completed form to the Compliance Officer immediately.
Compliance Officer is not available, you can turn in the report to your supervisor.
It is very important that you make the report IMMEDIATELY upon knowledge of a violation of Applicable Laws or the Code of Conduct is realized. While the Company prefers that you follow the process outlined above, we do understand that under certain circumstances you would prefer to remain anonymous. Under such circumstances, your obligation to report any suspected violation of Applicable Law or the Code of Conduct is just as important, but you may do so by using the Compliance Telephone Hotline or the Online Compliance Hotline (instructions for using both of these hotlines will be posted in common areas in the Company's facilities and such instructions can be located at the following internet address http://openboard.info/atec/).
