Each employee has an obligation to report to management any conduct that he or she believes in good faith to be an ethical or legal violation. If you observe any unethical or unlawful conduct, you are expected to report it to your supervisor, the Chief Governance Officer, the Legal Division, or through the reporting Hotline. Your information will be handled discreetly and in accordance with the law and Company procedures.
Furthermore, the Board of Directors has created a process for employees to transmit to the Audit Committee complaints relating to accounting, internal accounting controls, auditing matters, or other deceptive financial practices, such as securities fraud, wire fraud or bank fraud. If you wish to submit to the Audit Committee in good faith an accounting or securities fraud complaint, you can call 1-866-239-1376, and the matter will be forwarded appropriately.
