In order to achieve the standards, the Board of ATS has introduced this “Whistleblowing Policy” (the “Policy”) to encourage employees and stakeholders (ie. shareholders / suppliers / customers) of ATS to raise genuine concerns about unethical behavior, malpractices, illegal acts or failure to comply with regulatory requirements without fear of reprisal should they act in good faith when reporting such concerns. ATS views any harassments or retaliations in any form or manner against genuine whistle blower seriously and will treat such action as gross misconduct, which if proven, may lead to dismissal. This policy is applicable to ATS and its subsidiaries.

  • Improper conduct or unethical behaviour or misuse of confidential information; and/or

4. Confidentiality

 

ATS will treat all concerns raised within the context of the Policy in a confidential and sensitive manner.

However, the Policy encourages employees to put their name to their concern whenever possible in order for the Company to accord the necessary protection to her/him. Any anonymous whistleblower will not be entertained. However, the Company reserves its right to investigate into any anonymous disclosure.

  • Employees must believe it to be substantially true;
  • Employees must not act maliciously or make false allegations; and
  • Employees must not seek any personal gain.
