The directors, employees, and officers of UWEAR and PALEDENIM are strongly encouraged to report suspected violations of this policy to their superior, or to any member of the ethics committee the person is comfortable in approaching.

Any officer, director, or employee who in good faith reports a violation shall not be subject to harassment, retaliation, or any step that harms his employment. The person who retaliates against someone who has reported a violation in good faith will be disciplined with fines, demotion, or termination.
