What can be reported through the COWI Whistleblower, and how should I use it? Please find answers to these questions and more in the procedure for COWI Whistleblower below.
Please note that in France, Germany, Belgium, Sweden, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain the data privacy laws require a limitation of the categories. If you would like to report an issue that is not available on the website, please talk to your manager, the next line manager or the HR Partner.
Anyone filing a concern, a complaint or a report of a violation or suspected violation must be acting in good faith and have reasonable grounds for believing that the information disclosed is true and accurate.
COWI will not discharge, demote, suspend, threaten, harass or in any manner discriminate against any employee in the terms and conditions of employment based upon any lawful actions of an employee with respect to good faith reporting of concerns, complaints or reports of violations or suspected violations.
If any user of the COWI Whistleblower believes that he/she has been retaliated against for reporting or participating in an investigation, he/she should immediately report such perceived retaliation to the Group Compliance Manager. All such reports will also be investigated confidentially to the extent possible.
If the user of the COWI Whistleblower knowingly files misleading or false concerns, complaints or reports, without a reasonable belief as to the truth or accuracy of the claim, he or she will not be protected by this procedure for use of the COWI Whistleblower. Misuse of the COWI Whistleblower will be addressed in the appropriate manner.
Appropriate actions proportionate with the violation will be taken. This can have consequences for the employee relation and may be reported to the appropriate authorities.
If authorities investigate a crime, COWI will disclose information in accordance with the law.
All personal data will be processed in accordance with COWI's Policy for Whistleblowing and Data Privacy, which includes applicable legislation and principles of proportionality and reasonable measures.
