Every employee must promptly report all potential compliance incidents to at least one of the following:
- A member of the Compliance Committee;
- His or her supervisor;
- An appropriate management representative; or
- A Human Resources Business Partner (for significant employment-related issues)
Any employee who becomes aware of, or has reason to suspect activity of any other employee that is criminal or potentially criminal in nature, or an activity that may involve someone being in danger, is required to report such activity immediately to one of the above individuals. Failure to make such a report is a violation of this Code and may subject an individual to disciplinary action up to and including, where appropriate and permissible, termination.
Additionally, Lantheus urges any employee who has a complaint or who wishes to report an incident regarding compliance with laws and regulations or business process and financial issues, including financial misconduct, questionable accounting, internal controls, or auditing matters to contact the above or Lantheus’ Compliance Help Line, at 1-877-450-7127. You will be able to remain anonymous where allowed by local law. The Compliance Help Line is primarily designed to address business and financial issues, including questionable accounting, internal controls, or auditing, rather than employee relations and human resource matters. The Compliance Help Line builds on the principles contained within this Company Code of Conduct and is intended to further reinforce our Company’s Mission, Vision and Values and to ensure that we do everything possible to encourage highly ethical and transparent business practices. Please note that the Compliance Help Line is in addition to, and not a replacement for, open and direct communication with your supervisor and other individuals in the organization.
Upon receipt of a report, the Compliance Committee will determine whether to initiate an investigation. Members of the Compliance Committee may conduct the investigation personally, or may select an appropriate individual or individuals to gather necessary information and evaluate the circumstances. Prompt, appropriate and remedial action will be taken as warranted.
Employees who bring forward concerns are assured that Lantheus will not discharge, demote, suspend, threaten, or modify any term or condition of employment, on the basis of making a report in good faith. Confidentiality will be maintained to the extent possible in light of the responsibility to fully investigate any report of improper conduct in our Company. The resolution of investigations will be communicated to persons making reports where possible and appropriate.
