Employees should feel comfortable in reporting potential violations of the Code.
You cannot lose your job or your benefits, or be demoted, suspended, threatened, harassed or discriminated against for raising a concern honestly and in good faith or truthfully participating in a company investigation. Reporting honestly means that you believe you are being truthful and accurate. If you believe someone is retaliating against you, please report it. Retaliation of any type against someone who brings forward a concern in good faith will not be tolerated. All reports of retaliation will be investigated.
