In the event an employee or contractor engages in or fails to address circumstances that indicate a supplier is engaging in prohibited conduct, the consequences for noncompliance will depend on the nature, circumstances, and severity of the violation. Consequences for employees engaged in prohibited conduct can include discipline up to and including termination of employment. Consequences for contractors engaging in prohibited conduct, can terminating or nonrenewal of an existing contract with the supplier.
