Improper Activity

Updated 24 February 2017

Improper activity is any activity by the Company or by a Gough Group employee in the course of his/her employment or by a contractor to the Gough Group in the course of his/her engagement which:

  1. violates any law or regulation, or
  2. constitutes theft, fraud, harassment, bribery, misuse of assets or corruption, or
  3. could pose a significant threat to the health and safety of employees or the public, or
  4. could pose a significant threat to the environment, or
  5. could result in the ethics or integrity of the Gough Group being brought into question, or
  6. is a conflict of interest that gives rise to behaviour which disadvantages the Company.

If in doubt as to whether something constitutes improper activity, the best course of action is to report it.
