Anonymous Reporting Hotline
Reporting of Policy Violations
From time to time, you may become aware of a situation or be confronted with a transaction that raises a concern of whether it complies with proper business, accounting or compliance practices. If you witness theft, fraud, dishonesty, harassment, unethical behavior or improper accounting practices, we strongly encourage you to report any such activity to your supervisor/manager, Human Resources Department, General Counsel, Audit Department or a member of the company's executive management team.
Complaints of policy violations will be promptly and carefully investigated, including interviews with all relevant persons. Investigators will conduct an objective investigation with consideration given to each employee's desire for privacy; however, no employee is guaranteed complete confidentiality and/or anonymity during an investigation. Only individuals with a legitimate "need to know" will be given any information regarding the complaint(s).
You are expected to fully cooperate in any investigation involving issues relating to the company's policies, procedures, property, or any other aspect of the company's business affairs.
If you are uncomfortable reporting it in person, SWS provides a third party, anonymous ethics and compliance hotline which provides a confidential channel for employees to alert us to errors and wrongdoings, via online or by telephone.
The hotline is employee - accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
