The whistleblowing system may be used by the following persons to report serious offences or suspected serious offences:
- All workers in a professional context, i.e. employees, self-employed workers, volunteers, trainees, interns, directors, members of the board of Dstny, shareholders of Dstny and members of supervisory bodies;
- Independent third-party contractors, subcontractors and suppliers;
- Ex-workers and future workers, being all persons reporting breaches in a professional as opposed to private context.
Dstny encourages that serious offences are reported through Dstny Speak Up. However, it is emphasized that the system is a voluntary alternative to the ordinary internal channels, e.g. local management, local HR responsible, group management or group legal.
Dstny encourages its staff to use the whistleblowing system and to protect all whistleblowers who makes a report in a good faith etc. Such persons will not be subjected to any adverse treatment or adverse consequence.
The whistleblowing system is not an emergency hotline. Any issues that constitute immediate threats i.e. where there is a threat to health, life etc. should be reported through the ordinary emergency channels.
Types of serious misconduct in the workplace:
- Conflict of interest
- Policy/procedure breach
- Sexual Harassment
- Violation of the Code of Conduct
