Compliance, Monitoring and Reporting
Compliance with this policy will be continuously monitored and subject to review by the Director, supported by the Audit Team. Compliance will be reported to stakeholders through the Annual Report or its annual Corporate Social Responsibility Report on request. Each manager is responsible for ensuring that the principles set out in this policy are communicated to, understood and observed by all employees and for ensuring compliance in their area of responsibility.
Employees who reasonably suspect that there has been a breach of this policy must report it to their line manager or senior management. We recognise that employees may be reluctant to report concerns for fear of retaliation and will take disciplinary action against any employee who threatens or engages in retaliation, retribution or harassment of any person who has reported or is considering reporting a concern in good faith.
