The GLS Group has established a reporting channel to allow employees, business partners and third parties to confidentially report criminal or similar acts. Lawyer Dr. Rainer Buchert is available as a contact person for all of them, but Dr. Buchert will not handle complaints that are not of a serious, criminal or similar nature. In case of doubt, he will guide you how to proceed.
All reports will be treated confidentially. Dr. Buchert will comply with legal confidentiality obligations and will not reveal the identity of individuals without explicit consent. He has the right to refuse to make a statement (including the identity of the claimants) at the request of a court. Complaints to Dr. Buchert will only be transmitted to the GLS Group once the claimant’s consent has been obtained.
Of course, concerns related to the issues mentioned can also be reported to the employee’s immediate manager or the Compliance Manager.
