Reporting of violations of existing laws, especially discrimination, harassment, or Mobbing (in this context, it is important to respect the ANDRITZ Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, for example, or the laws on equal treatment). As violations in this area should be reported primarily through the works council or HR departments the following special regulation applies: Anonymous reports will not be pursued by GCC; if a mailbox is provided for an anonymous report, a message is sent to the whistleblower requesting that anonymity be relinquished, otherwise the report cannot be pursued further. Alternatively the whistleblower has the option of submitting the report directly to the works council and/or competent HR department. If the report is not submitted anonymously or anonymity is relinquished, the report is pursued according to the process laid down in the company agreement. In each case, the employer's duty of care must be strictly observed regardless.
