Aston Martin Lagonda (the Company) is committed to creating an environment of trust which is open, safe and secure. As such, it is important that all employees feel that they can raise genuine concerns of suspected wrongdoing without fear of suffering detriment, retaliation or being victimised. Employees have a basic obligation to comply with the law and also to report any known or suspected misconduct or illegality by others which threatens a public interest e.g. of our employees, suppliers, customers or the general public.
This policy has been developed in accordance with the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 (“the Act”). The aim of the policy is to encourage employees to voice any concerns they may have about any known or suspected wrongdoing and to outline the procedure to follow to bring this to the Company’s attention.
The Company is committed to achieving the highest possible ethical standards. We aim to reassure our employees that they are able to raise genuine concerns to help achieve these standards without fear of subsequent reprisal or discrimination. The Company will ensure that any person who raises a genuine concern will not suffer any form of detrimental treatment and that anyone who threatens or retaliates to a whistleblower in any way will be subject to disciplinary action.
This policy applies to all Aston Martin Lagonda employees, agency workers and contractors who are carrying out Company business.
