We expect behaviour to align with our Code of Conduct and we will not tolerate unethical, corrupt or illegal behaviour or other misconduct.
Some examples of misconduct include:
Under the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth), people who make a report about reportable conduct are called an eligible whistleblower. In 2019, the Australian Government broadened the definition of an eligible Whistleblower to include any person who is, or has been any of the following:
If you are an eligible whistleblower and have concerns about misconduct in relation to our companies, you can report it to our external whistleblowing service or to one of our Whistleblower Protection Officers (WPO).
Reporting to our whistleblowing service
Our whistleblowing service is managed by Your Call. You can make a Protected Report:
You can make a Protected Report by contacting a WPO directly. Our WPOs are:
Claudia Certoma – Group Executive, Legal, Governance and Risk
Joe Achmar – Chief Financial Officer
Sally Friedlander – Chief Operating Officer
If you choose to report directly to a WPO, do not report concerns to someone who you suspect may be involved in the conduct or anyone that may have a conflict of interest.
If you do not comfortable in making a report to our external whistleblowing service or a WPO, you can also make a report to another eligible recipient as outlined in our Whistleblower policy.
When making a report, you should clearly outline:
This is to ensure that we have enough information to take appropriate action without delay.
When making a report, you can choose to be anonymous, however, remaining fully anonymous can make it difficult for us to investigate your report, communicate with you and to protect you from detriment.
We are committed to protecting eligible whistleblowers and will respect confidentiality as required by law.
We will not tolerate any detriment towards eligible whistleblowers or others (e.g. people who are suspected whistleblowers or people who participate in investigations).
A report made by an eligible whistleblower in accordance with our Whistleblower Policy is a Protected Report which receives these legal protections.
