KOSSAN shall not tolerate any form of retaliation, harassment or victimization against whistleblower who has raised a concern in good faith. Any employee who retaliates against a whistleblower will face disciplinary action.
A whistleblower shall act on good faith in raising a specific concern. KOSSAN employees may be subject to disciplinary action should the allegations made were not in good faith or malicious.
