To create a unified reporting channel for testimonies of unethical, corruptive, illegal, unsafe or environment-damaging behaviour, the CZECHOSLOVAK GROUP holding has created the Ethics Line which can be used by anybody to report the above-mentioned problematic behaviour either in the form of
a) leaving a voice message at telephone number +420 733 678 454, or
b) sending a report to firstname.lastname@example.org.
CZECHOSLOVAK GROUP prefers that the reports are not anonymous as such reports themselves pose a risk of unethical behaviour and abuse of the Ethics Line. However, nobody can be forced to leave his name.
The receiver of all reports is the HR department of CZECHOSLOVAK GROUP which in case the report has been submitted by e-mail acknowledges the message’s acceptance and informs the sender within 14 days about taken steps. After the report has been investigated, the sender is notified about the result.
CZECHOSLOVAK GROUP declares that they value reasonable reports submitted to the Ethics Line. However, this does not apply to false reports with the aim to unjustly accuse another person or company. Such report itself is a breach of the Code of Ethics and CZECHOSLOVAK GROUP’s anti-corruption program with all associated consequences.
