Jaguar has introduced a confidential reporting process known as the Whistleblower.
The purpose of Jaguar's Whistleblower is to provide a channel for all directors, officers, employees, contractors, subcontractors or company's agents to communicate complaints or concerns regarding (i) accounting; (ii) internal controls; and (iii) auditing matters.
The program means that everyone who believes that they have information regarding crime or irregularities within any of Jaguar's workplaces, can report these internally, in confidence, independent of management, and anonymously if they so wish.
We have partnered with Ethics Point, an independent outsourced Company, to manage the reporting system for us. They have gone to great lengths to ensure that reports entered in the system are completely confidential.
Your input is essential to ensuring that we maintain a positive, productive workplace. Please know that when you use the Ethics Point Reporting System, you can report misconduct that you observe, or gain clarity on whether or not something is cause for concern.
According to Sarbanes Oxley Rules, employees acting in good faith cannot lose their positions or suffer any form of harassment or occupational detriment regarding a report filed, even if subsequently it is found they are mistaken.
Jaguar's Audit Committee Chair, Andrew C. Burns, is the administrator of the whistle-blowing process, and will personally hold responsibility for the reports filed and its respective investigation, when applicable. He is independent of the conventional Jaguar's hierarchy.
Any one found to be in breach of any laws or policies faces a range of actions, including (i) warning; (ii) suspension; (iii) dismissal; and (iv) criminal charges.
