All inquiries will be handled promptly and discreetly. If you report a possible breach of the Code, you have the right to remain anonymous, and confidentiality and/or anonymity will be maintained. However, it is usually easier to conduct a full and fair investigation of your concerns if you identify yourself and those involved. Bombardier will make every effort to keep you informed about the action taken to address your concern.
You will not be penalized, dismissed, demoted or suspended and no retaliatory action will be taken against anyone for reporting or inquiring in good faith about potential breaches of the Code or for seeking guidance on how to handle suspected breaches.
Penalties for Violations
Failure to respect the letter or the spirit of the Code or the law may lead to disciplinary measures commensurate with the violation, including termination of employment. Employees who break the law expose both themselves and the Corporation to criminal penalties (such as fines and jail sentences) or civil sanctions (such as damage awards or fines).
