Good Faith Reporting 
A reporting person who files an AGF Code of Conduct Violation form must do so with no malice and/or information known to be false, fabricated or retaliatory in nature. Reporters must have reasonable grounds for believing the information disclosed does indeed indicate a violation. Knowingly submitting a false or malicious report will be viewed as a major infraction.

There will be no retaliation of good faith reports that turn out to be unsubstantiated. No reporting person shall suffer adverse employment consequences, retaliation or harassment as a result of their report.
