No retribution or retaliation will be taken against any person who has filed a report based on a reasonable good faith belief however; making a report does not necessarily absolve you or anyone else if the report is not made in good faith. The company reserves the right to discipline you if you provide false information or make an accusation you know to be untrue. This does not mean that the information that you provide has to be correct, but it does mean that you must reasonably believe that the information is truthful.
SIM Energy takes all reports seriously. Reports to Navex Global™ which are: fabricated, retaliatory, frivolous, malicious, or a practical joke, may require disciplinary action up to and including termination.
The goal of the Reporting Hotline is to empower our employees, improve our working environment, and provide a secure and confidential outlet when normal channels have failed or are not possible; while bringing about positive change at SIM Energy.
