UCL Company (Pty) Ltd Group of Company’s (Group) commitment to integrity and accountability is reflected by the fact that the Board of Director recognises the need to stop fraudulent practises within the Group and in conjunction recognises the need to protect employees who make disclosures concerning either unlawful or irregular conduct allegedly committed by anyone employed by the Group or any of its agents or suppliers. This policy is applicable to all divisions and branches of the group.
This policy sets out the guidelines every Director, Officer and Employee should follow if he or she is aware of conduct which may constitute a violation of an internal policy, law, or regulation. The Group expects all Directors, Officers and Employees to adhere to internal policies and guidelines as well as all laws and regulations that apply to the Group’s business. When an action of the Group or a Director, Officer or Employee violates a policy, law or regulation, it needs to be disclosed in a timely manner so that issues may be investigated and dealt with as quickly as possible. Delays in bringing the information to the attention of the designated senior management may cause damage, complications, and irreversible consequences for the Group. Following the steps outlined in the policy and ensuring that the information disclosed is accurate and reliable will allow the Group to address the issues and ensure that timely remedial action is taken.
