Main Layer treats whistleblowing seriously. This page outlines our whistleblowing policy and the process for escalating concerns about any suspected wrongdoing.
Everyone at Main Layer has a responsibility to speak up if they become aware of wrongdoing that could affect either Main Layer itself or:
- Main Layer’s customers, employees, shareholders, or suppliers;
- The wider public.
Wrongdoing could include behaviour that:
- Is not in line with Main Layer’s guidelines and policies;
- Breaches regulatory requirements; and/or
- Is illegal.
Concerns can be raised in confidence, and if preferred, anonymously. Main Layer’s employees are encouraged to raise any concerns they might have with the People Operations team, their manager, or a colleague.
The service can be used by anyone who acquires information about wrongdoing at Main Layer, either through work-related activity or during recruitment. Individuals who might report include:
- Main Layer’s employees;
- Contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers;
- Temporary staff, seconders, consultants;
- Interns and volunteers.
Individuals who wish to submit a whistleblower report can do so by visiting our Contact Us page.
Reports of Wrongdoing
How Main Layer will respond to reports of wrongdoing? Main Layer will consider every concern of wrongdoing reported through either managers or colleagues. Where appropriate, Main Layer will allocate an investigator to examine the issues raised, and it will take appropriate and proportionate action to address any issues identified in the investigation. Where possible, feedback will be provided to the person who made the report, both during the investigation and at the point of closure.
