"This Whistleblower Policy (‘‘Policy’’) details the framework for receiving, investigating and addressing allegations of Reportable Conduct (see section 4 for the definition of “Reportable Conduct”) where that Reportable Conduct concerns the activities of CPA Australia or current and former directors, officers, agents, employees and contractors of the Group (“CPA Australia Personnel”). If this Policy differs from applicable law, CPA Australia will apply whichever is more stringent."

This Policy supports the reporting of allegations of serious wrongdoing (“Reportable Conduct”) by CPA Australia, CPA Australia Personnel or the Group’s independent auditors. Reportable Conduct includes, but is not limited to the following:
• dishonest, corrupt or illegal activities;
• theft, fraud, money laundering or misappropriation;
• a serious breach of the Group’s policies and procedures;
• offering or accepting a bribe;
• use of Group funds or Group resources in a manner that falls within the scope of Reportable Conduct;
• damage/sabotage, violence, drug & alcohol sale/use;
• risks to the health and safety of workers;
• unethical conduct;
• bullying, discrimination, harassment or abuse;
• victimising someone for reporting Reportable Conduct;
• recrimination against someone because they participated in an investigation or review;
• any instruction to cover up or attempt to cover up serious wrongdoing.
This Policy extends to serious wrongdoing that occurs before or after the commencement of this Policy, and is not limited to the above examples
