We are absolutely committed to integrity. If you believe any TOTE company or individual has engaged in illegal or unethical behavior, we encourage you to report it. Making a report in “good faith” means coming forward with information you believe to be true and correct. This means that any time you make such a report -even if an investigation does not uncover any misconduct – you will be safe from retaliation or any adverse consequence.

If you report improper conduct to a supervisor and it appears that the issue is not addressed, do not assume that the Company is going to take no action. The appropriate response is for you to escalate the issue to a more senior manager, up to and including the Company President, or the Human Resources Department, the Compliance Officer, or the General Counsel.

If the Company does not satisfactorily address your issue, or if you are uncomfortable raising the issue within the Company, please contact the Ethics Hotline at 1-800-270-7513 or 1-206-736-7020 (Outside the U.S.). For online reporting, please visit: The Ethics Hotline is available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week for you to ask questions, express a concern, or report a possible violation. The concerns you report will be logged and addressed promptly  by the appropriate person. We treat reported information in a confidential manner to the extent reasonably possible.
