Protection to Whistleblowers
- Any Whistleblower reporting Improper Activities will be protected against threats of retaliation, discharge, or other types of discrimination including compensation or terms and conditions of employment that are directly related to the disclosure of the report.

- Any other Employee assisting in the said investigation shall also be protected to the same extent as the Whistleblower.
However, Employee/s or whistleblowers who file reports of Improper Activities or provide evidence that they know to be false or without a reasonable belief in the truth and accuracy of such information will not be protected by the above policy statement and may be subject to disciplinary action and legal claims.
