Why Do We Have This Statement? We actively encourage Associates to report concerns and ask questions. Specifically, this Statement provides that:
Reporting Suspected Violations of Law or Company Policies The Company provides a number of channels to make reports of actual or potential violations of the Code or of any applicable law. Associates may request guidance about how to comply with applicable law or the Code and report violations through any of the following channels:
Any member of the iTechWorks Legal Department
By email: By using the Contact Us Portal at https://inettechworks.com
By mail: By using the Address listed at https://inettechworks.com
The iTechWorks Helpline is available by phone or online. Reports may be made anonymously, where local laws allow. However, you are encouraged to identify yourself when making a report, so that additional information can be obtained if needed. Whenever possible and permitted by law, your identity will be kept strictly confidential.
Use the appropriate access code for your country.
Associates who report a concern may choose to remain anonymous, although we encourage reporters to provide contact information to assist the Company in investigating reports. iTechWorks will keep reports confidential to the extent consistent with its ability to conduct a full and fair investigation and to comply with its legal obligations.
Any manager or other individual who receives a report of a violation or a possible violation should refrain from conducting their own investigation, and promptly forward the report to the Legal Department. iTechWorks will assign an experienced professional to investigate any known or suspected misconduct. Our experts will investigate professionally, and any appropriate corrective action will be taken with management oversight.
Protection Against Retaliation for Reporting Suspected Violations or Cooperating with Investigations iTechWorks does not tolerate retaliation against any individual who submits a good faith report of a violation or possible violation of law, the Code, or other iTechWorks policies. iTechWorks Associates must never intimidate, harass, or take any retaliatory action against a person who makes a report of a potential violation of law, regulation, the Code, other iTechWorks policies, or who cooperates with an investigation of any such report.
“Retaliation” includes, but is not limited to any adverse action taken against a person because he or she:
We Encourage Associates Who Believe They are the Subject of Retaliation to Report Violations Anyone who is the target of retaliation should promptly report it to one of the resources listed in the Code or in this Statement. Examples of prohibited retaliation, retribution, and harassment include:
Any Associate who witnesses or knows about any Associate retaliation, retribution, or harassment must make a report through one of the reporting channels set forth above.
iTechWorks Pledges to Appropriately Investigate Any Allegation of Retaliation. iTechWorks shall investigate each complaint of retaliation and, if any such retaliation claim is substantiated, take appropriate disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment, and implement any appropriate remedial measures.
Who should I contact with questions? Questions regarding this Statement should be directed to the Legal Department or your local compliance resource.
