|Code of Conduct|
All employees are encouraged to report irregularities to their direct superiors or to the contacts of the compliance organization. Information may also be reported to Corporate Auditing. The protection of those who inform the company about irregularities is a matter of course. HOCHTIEF has set up an external and an internal whistle blowing hotline for employees and third parties, clients and subcontractors, for example to bring attention to compliance issues confidentially. The internal hotline puts callers in contact with a member of the Corporate Compliance team. Using the external hotline, callers can speak to an independent lawyer specialized in criminal law.
Other HOCHTIEF companies have similar hotlines for example, the Ethics Hotline at Turner, Flatiron, and E.E. Cruz. Employees can also report information to the Corporate Compliance Counsel using an e-mail address. All information can be given anonymously and treated confidentially on request.
