Rexel Employee who has made an alert on a suspicion selflessly and in all good faith cannot be subject to disciplinary sanction or retaliation measures for this reason. By in «all good faith» we mean that at the time the alert was made, the whistle-blower believed that the information given was complete, honest and exact, even if later events should reveal that the alert was groundless. If an Employee realizes that an alert is unjustified, he/she must immediately inform Rexel. By «selflessly» we mean that the whistle-blower acts in the general interest and that he/she does not intend to obtain any benefit or reward, in any form whatsoever, in return for this whistle-blowing. Any «REXEL Employee» who feels they are being subjected to retaliation measures, as defined above, after having made an alert should report it immediately. Calumnious denouncements or alerts made in bad faith may give rise to disciplinary sanctions as well as legal proceedings.
