Reporting Suspected Violations
Any violation of the Calista Code of Conduct or applicable laws and regulations, will be promptly reported to the appropriate Human Resources representative. Every effort will be made to hold all such reports in strict confidence, and employees, subcontractors, vendors or clients making such reports shall not be subject to retribution, disciplinary action or any other adverse administrative or punitive action for such good faith reporting.
Failure to report known or observed violations of the Calista Code of Conduct by a Tunista Construction employee may also constitute a violation. An employee who intentionally fails to disclose, hides or covers-up a known or observed violation may be subject to the disciplinary action up to and including termination, even when such employee was not a violator or a participant.
Upon receiving a report of suspected violations of this Code of Conduct or applicable laws and regulations, the appropriate Human Resources Manager shall immediately conduct or direct an investigation of the incident. If the reporting employee, subcontractor/vendor, client, etc. so requests, the name of the reporter shall be held in confidence by the Human Resources Manager and shall not be disclosed to other corporate employees; provided, however, that the Human Resources Manager may provide the name of the employee to the General Counsel, Calista employees with a need to know, or the proper authorities or any person retained by Calista to conduct an investigation. The confidentiality of the source of the report shall be maintained to the maximum extent possible.
