Whistleblower Procedures

If someone reasonably believes that some policy, practice, or activity of GFI or one of its contractors or project partners is in violation of law, a written complaint must be filed by that person through the procedures outlined below.

To lodge a complaint, please proceed to the EthicsPoint portal to make a written report or toll-free phone call. Ethicspoint will ensure that your complaint is totally confidential and anonymous, if so chosen. You have our guarantee that your comments will be heard.

An employee is protected from retaliation only if the employee brings the alleged unlawful activity, policy, or practice to the attention of GFI and provides GFI with a reasonable opportunity to investigate and correct the alleged unlawful activity. The protection described below is only available to employees that comply with this requirement. A written response shall be given to the employee within 60 days of the complaint being filed with GFI.

GFI will not retaliate against an employee who in good faith has made a protest or raised a complaint against some practice of GFI or of another individual or entity with whom GFI has a business relationship on the basis of a reasonable belief that the practice is in violation of law.

GFI will not retaliate against employees who disclose or threaten to disclose to a supervisor or a public body any activity, policy, or practice of GFI that the employee reasonably believes is in violation of a law, a rule, or regulation mandated pursuant to law.
