CORPORATE WHISTLEBLOWING POLICY AND PROCEDURES
Mentor Media Limited (“The Company”) practices zero tolerance towards any form of malpractice, impropriety, statutory non-compliance or wrongdoing by our employees during the course of our work. This Corporate Whistleblowing Policy is intended to guide and promote responsible and secure whistleblowing and protect the whistleblower from fear of adverse consequences from the direct managers/supervisors.
Employees and external parties, such as suppliers, customers, contractors and other stakeholders, may use the procedures set out in the Policy to report any concern or complaint regarding questionable accounting or auditing matters, internal controls, disclosure matters, conflict of interest, collusion with competitors, serious breaches of Group policy, unsafe work practices or any other matters involving fraud, corruption and employee misconduct.
The Policy allows for reporting by employees or external parties of such matters directly to the Company without the need to copy your direct managers/supervisors as well as without fear of reprisal, discrimination or adverse consequences, and also permits the Company to address such reports by taking appropriate action, including, but not limited to, disciplining or terminating the employment and/or services of those responsible.
However, while the Policy is meant to protect genuine whistleblowers from any exposure to unfair treatment as a result of their report, it also strictly prohibits frivolous, false and unsubstantiated complaints. The Policy is also not a channel for personal grievances experienced in the course of work. These personal grievances should continue to be taken up directly with Division or Department heads in line with the Grievance Policy and its governing procedures.
The Company encourages employees and external parties to put their names to their allegations whenever possible. Concerns or irregularities expressed anonymously are more difficult to act upon effectively but they will be considered, taking into account the seriousness and credibility of the issues raised, and the likelihood of confirming the allegation from attributable sources and information provided. All concerns or irregularities raised will be treated with confidence and every effort will be made to ensure that confidentiality is maintained throughout the process.
Concerns may be raised verbally or in writing. As it is essential for the Company to have all critical information in order to be able to effectively evaluate and investigate a complaint, the report made should provide as much detail and be as specific as possible. The complaint should include:
- Details of the person/persons involved in the incident
- Dates and time of incident
- Type of incident (eg. theft, vandalism, safety violations, etc)
- Evidence supporting the complaint, where possible (eg. photographs, video footages, eye-witness accounts, etc)
- Contact details of the whistleblower, in case further information is required
The Receiving Officer is the Group Senior Vice President of Human Resources. The contact details of the Receiving Officer are as follows:
Address: Mentor Media Ltd, 47 Jalan Buroh, #08-02, Singapore 619491
All matters reported will be reviewed within a reasonable timeframe, and after due consideration and internal inquiry, a decision will be taken on whether to proceed with a detailed investigation. Direction may be sought from the CEO. While all complaints received by the Receiving Officer will be reported to the CEO, whistleblowing complaints alleging fraud and breaches of corporate governance may be escalated to the Chairman of the Board of Directors subject to the recommendation of the CEO.
The Company prohibits discrimination, retaliation or harassment of any kind against a whistleblower who submits a complaint or report in good faith. Employees shall be protected against retaliatory actions resulting from reporting unethical conduct to their superior. If a whistleblower believes that he/she is being subjected to discrimination, retaliation or harassment for having made a report under this Policy who feel that adverse action has been taken toward him/her due to a report of improper activity, the Receiving Officer should be similarly notified immediately. Reporting should be done to facilitate investigation and the taking of necessary action, if any.
At the appropriate time, the party making the report may need to come forward as a witness. If an employee or external party makes an allegation in good faith but it is not confirmed by the investigation, no action will be taken against him or her. If, however, an employee has made an allegation frivolously, maliciously or for personal gain, disciplinary action may be taken against him or her. Likewise, if investigations reveal that the external party making the complaint had done so maliciously or for personal gain, appropriate action, including reporting the matter to the police, may be taken.
The Company will not retaliate against employees or external parties who in good faith, has reported suspected illegal activity or conduct of another entity that Company has a business relationship with, if the employee has a reasonable belief that the activity or conduct is in violation of law.
The Receiving Officer, may, in consultation with the CEO, direct the complaint to the relevant internal support function best placed lead the investigation to ensure prompt, independent and appropriate investigation and resolution. All information disclosed during the course of investigation will remain strictly confidential, except as necessary or appropriate to conduct the investigation and to take any remedial action, in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations.
The Company reserves the right to refer any concerns or complaints to appropriate external regulatory authorities. Depending on the nature of the complaint, the subject of the complaint may be informed of the allegations against him or her and be provided with an opportunity to reply to such allegations. Employees who fail to cooperate in an investigation, or deliberately provide false information during an investigation, shall be subject to strict disciplinary action up to, and including, immediate dismissal.
If, at the conclusion of an investigation, the Company determines that a violation has occurred or the allegations are substantiated, effective remedial action commensurate with the severity of the offence may be taken.
