"EICO A/S is a responsible organization with an open-minded culture where everyone can express themselves freely, even if you experience irregularities or illegalities. For the employees, communication about these mat-ters should basically take place via the daily communication channels at the workplace. As an employee, you can e.g., always contact your immediate manager or the HR department and/or the undersigned if you experi-ence any irregularities or illegalities. But I am happy that - as a supplement to this - we have set up a formal scheme which gives employees the opportunity to speak up and express themselves if they experience irregu-larities or illegalities.
However, EICO A/S does not accept that an employee or another person intentionally makes false reports. If a person knowingly submits a false report, it may have legal consequences. If the person in question is employed by EICO A/S, an intentional false report may result in disciplinary sanctions, including resulting in the employ-ee being dismissed. Accusations against individuals, which are both anonymous and unfounded, will be sort-ed out by HjulmandKaptain and will not be processed by EICO A/S.” (CEO, Michael Jacobsen)
