At SKC, we operate channels, through which stakeholders (employees, subcontractors, and customers) may engage in ethics-related whistleblowing/consulting freely and duly operate a program for the protection of whistleblowers.
The whistleblower’s identity and related information are kept strictly confidential.
No whistleblower is to be put to disadvantage concerning his whistleblowing.
To protect the whistleblower, the related information, such as anti-retaliation act, is reflected on the Code of Ethics and Ethics Pledge.
In the event of any mistreatment because of whistleblowing, its correction and proper protection can be requested to the Ethical Management Department. Then, the Ethical Management Department shall take all possible actions to minimize any disadvantages.
Those who have been cooperative with the investigation, such as testimony and provision of data, shall be protected as equally as the whistleblower.
The Ethical Management Department shall check regularly to see whether a whistleblower has been disadvantaged, including retaliation, through follow-up monitoring.
