Non-Retaliation and confidentiality
Sasol strictly prohibit any form of retaliation, intimidation, harassment or victimisation against a reporter who in good faith makes a report or raises a concern that he or she reasonably believes to be a violation of Sasol’s Code of Conduct. Retaliation against employees is prohibited even if their reports or concerns are proven unfounded by an investigation.
Should anyone within Sasol attempt to retaliate against or victimise a reporter for speaking up and making a report in good faith then such person will face disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal.
Any reporter or witness who suspects that they are being victimised or retaliated against as a result of having made an ethics report, or for assisting in an investigation, should immediately make another ethics call report providing all the details of the alleged victimisation or retaliation.
Everyone who deals with the ethics call reports and the investigation thereof are bound by strict confidentiality obligations. If you make a call report, you may elect to remain anonymous.
