How It Works


There are six ways that a staff member, contractor or other concerned stakeholder can contact the CIMIC Group Ethics Line:


BY TELEPHONE

To report suspected misconduct by telephone, simply call:

CIMIC Group Operating Company Ethics Line
CIMIC Group, EIC Activities, Pacific Partnerships, and Leighton Properties 1300 815 612
CPB Contractors 1300 817 574
Leighton Asia, India and Offshore +61 3 9811 3275 (Reverse Charges)
Thiess 1300 844 377
Sedgman 1300 627 951
UGL 1300 413 999

You will be connected to an experienced interviewer who will ask you some questions about the conduct.

You can remain anonymous if you wish. There is no need to reveal your identity unless you choose to do so.

Once your call is taken, the disclosure will be reviewed and reported back to a dedicated representative at CIMIC Group who will then decide what action to take about the report.

BY EMAIL

Contact the CIMIC Group Ethics Line via e-mail

Alternatively, you can send an e-mail to:

CIMIC Group Operating Company Email address

Leighton Asia, India and Offshore laio@stopline.com.au

You will need to include as much information as possible about the suspected misconduct in the e-mail. While the CIMIC Group Ethics Line will not provide your email address to your employer without your consent, your identity and e-mail may not be secure or confidential as e-mail records are often accessible by others including your employer.

What happens next?

It does not matter how a concern is raised, once it reaches the experienced staff at STOPline, it is assessed by an experienced forensic investigator and the report is forwarded to the CIMIC Group Disclosure Coordinator who will also assess the disclosure and determine next steps in accordance with CIMIC Group policies and procedures.

Each disclosure receives its own Unique Reference Number and even if the person making the disclosure prefers to remain anonymous, we encourage them to contact STOPline at regular intervals (we suggest each 2 weeks) to find out how their matter is progressing. STOPline staff will not divulge any information relating to a disclosure unless the person is able to provide sufficient information to identify them as the person who initially made the disclosure.

This process also assists if the CIMIC Group investigator appointed to oversee the matter has further queries to be put to the person making the disclosure – STOPline is able to facilitate questions and answers between the investigator and the person making the disclosure while protecting anonymity.

When the investigation is concluded, STOPline will be informed about the outcome and that finding will be recorded on our system.
