This excerpt taken from the DRAD 10-K filed Mar 3, 2005.
Questions regarding the policies in this Code should first be directed to your immediate supervisor. If you do not feel comfortable about discussing your concerns with your supervisor, or if your supervisor instructs you, complete a Report of Violation or Suspected Violation form or call the Compliance Hotline. If the problem warrants immediate attention, discuss it with the Compliance Officer. If you do not feel comfortable about discussing it with the Compliance Officer, call the Chairman of the Audit Committee.
If you have concerns relating to Digirads accounting, internal controls or auditing matters, you may also confidentially, and anonymously if you desire, call the Compliance Hotline. When submitting concerns, you are asked to provide as much detailed information as
possible. Providing detailed, rather than general, information will assist us in effectively investigating complaints. This is particularly important when you submit a complaint on an anonymous basis, since we will be unable to contact you with requests for additional information or clarification.
We are providing these anonymous reporting procedures so that you may disclose genuine concerns without feeling threatened. Employees who choose to identify themselves when submitting a report may be contacted in order to gain additional information.
All conversations, calls and reports made under this policy in good faith will be taken seriously. Any allegations that are knowingly false or without a reasonable belief in the truth and accuracy of such information will be viewed as a serious disciplinary offense.
