I think there may be a potential quality problem at my plant, but I’m not
sure of the facts or if it’s an ethical issue. Do I still have to raise this?
We expect you to report things like this to your supervisor, so he or she
can correct the situation before it becomes serious. You do not need to
investigate or know all the facts. We only ask that you have good and honest
intentions. In most cases, your supervisor can help you understand all the
facts or will work with you to address the issues.
