Retaliation is prohibited
Reporting suspected misconduct or even asking a compliance question can take courage, but it is the right thing to do. 3M does not tolerate retaliation against anyone who raises a concern, asks a question, or cooperates with a company investigation. Employees who intentionally make false accusations or provide false information will be disciplined, because such actions violate 3M's business conduct principles and are inconsistent with 3M values. If employees believe they are being retaliated against for raising a good-faith business conduct concern, they may report this to any of the resources listed in the Employee Obligations and Reporting Principle or report it using a toll-free telephone number or online reporting form available at www.3M-ethics.com.
