MARC Group and its subsidiaries (hereinafter referred to as “MARC”) are committed to the highest level of integrity from its employees in all their dealings. Any illegal, improper, unethical conduct or questionable practices (collectively referred as “improper conduct”) by MARC employees will be treated seriously and dealt with swiftly in a fair but firm manner.
Report A Whistleblowing Complaint
MARC has implemented a Whistleblowing Policy to provide a structured reporting channel and guidance to all employees and external parties to report instances of unethical behaviour, fraud, misconduct, bribery or violation of MARC’s Code of Business Ethics without fear of victimisation, discrimination and/or being disadvantaged. Parties can report a Whistleblowing complaint if they are aware of any wrongdoings, including, but not limited to the following:
Misappropriation of assets
Criminal breach of trust
Illicit and corrupt practices
Questionable or improper accounting
Profiteering as a result of insider knowledge
Misuse of confidential information
Acts or omissions which are deemed to be against the interest of the Company, laws, regulations, or public policies
Breaches of Group Policies and Code of Ethics and Business Conduct
Giving false or misleading information (including suppression of any material facts or information)
For investigation purposes (where necessary), the consent of the Whistleblower is to be sought to disclose their identity including disclosure to the Law Enforcement Agency (LEA).
The principles on confidentiality granted to the whistleblower will also apply equally to the employee under investigation. MARC has an independent investigation process to investigate all whistleblowing reports based on investigation protocol which accords with the principles of fairness, independence and propriety. Where the improper conduct involves a suspected criminal offence, MARC will report the matter to the relevant authority for their further action and unless compelled by law, will strictly safeguard the identity of the whistleblower in accordance with the Whistleblowers Protection Act 2010 (Act 711).
