Mandalay’s Whistleblower Policy governs the process through which the Company’s employees, suppliers, customers and community members or government at all jurisdictions of operations and projects, can anonymously and confidentially report any potential violation or concern contrary to the Company’s policies or local laws or regulations.
This policy is designed to surface serious allegations of possible wrongdoing for investigation by the Mandalay Audit Committee, which the Whistleblower is unwilling or uncomfortable making to the manager or executive accountable for the area in which the alleged wrongdoing has occurred. The policy can also be invoked if the local issue resolution processes have not generated a satisfactory outcome and the individual wishes to escalate the allegation to Board level.
Mandalay has retained the services of WhistleBlower Security, an independent service provider to receive reports on an anonymous and confidential basis. A Whistleblower report can be filed as follows:
