At Finelcomp, we endeavour to be an open and transparent workplace, where misconduct and serious negligence should not occur. Our basic approach is that leadership and teamwork should be characterised by respect, clarity and a healthy balance between responsibility and authority. Our employees are encouraged to turn to their immediate manager, the head of department or the HR function in case of any misconduct. Such reporting should, as far as possible, be handled confidentially and should never lead to any negative consequences for the informant.
However, there may be situations where an employee does not feel comfortable reporting openly and directly to someone. Therefore, we introduced a web-based whistleblowing service that enables anonymous reporting with a high level of security and confidentiality.
For this purpose, we use the whistleblowing tool VISSLAN.
You can blow the whistle and receive protection under the Whistleblowing Act if you are an employee, job applicant, trainee or consultant in one of our companies, or an active shareholder or board member. The fact that you have ended your work-related relationship with us, or that it has not yet started, does not prevent you from reporting misconduct.
If you suspect misconduct, we encourage you to report this to us as a whistleblowing case. You do not need to have concrete evidence to support your suspicion, but you should have reasonable grounds to believe that the information you provide is true and that reporting the information is necessary to uncover the reported misconduct. The whistleblowing facility must be used responsibly and abuse of the system will not be tolerated.
Reporting is handled confidentially. All irrelevant personal data will be deleted and the case will only be kept for as long as necessary. You can remain anonymous throughout the process without prejudice to your legal protection, but you also have the possibility to disclose your identity under strict confidentiality.
