ASGCC Whistleblower Policy
To confidentially email the board: firstname.lastname@example.org
ASGCC’s Code of Conduct requires employees, board members and contractors to observe high standards of business and personal ethics in the conduct of their duties and responsibilities. Our Code of Conduct addresses policies and issues around general workplace conduct, ethics, harassment and receipt of payment for services. As ASGCC employees and representatives the practice of honesty and integrity in fulfilling responsibilities and compliance with all applicable laws and regulations is fully expected. Emails sent to this address will be responded to within 10 business days.
It is the responsibility of all employees, board members and contractors to comply with the code and to report violations or suspected violations in accordance with this Whistleblower Policy.
No employee, board member, contractor or client who in good faith reports a violation of the Code shall suffer harassment, retaliation or adverse employment or other consequences, as a result of filing a report. An employee, board member, or contractor who retaliates against someone who has reported a violation in good faith is subject to discipline up to and including termination of employment or removal from the board. The Whistleblower Policy is intended to encourage and enable employees and others to raise serious concerns within the agency before seeking outside assistance or counsel.
ASGCC maintains an open-door policy and suggests that employees, board members and contractors share their concerns or suggestions with the appropriate person. While in most cases this should be the employee’s supervisor, in the event that an employee is not comfortable confiding in their supervisor they are encouraged to speak with any member of the management team who they are comfortable speaking with. Supervisors and managers are required to report suspected violations of the Code of Conduct to the CEO who has a specified responsibility to investigate all reported violations. For suspected fraud or in the event that the employee is not comfortable with the process of speaking with their supervisor they should contact the CEO directly. In the event that the suspected violation is with the CEO, reporters should discuss this with the Chair of the Board of Directors.
ASGCC will maintain an anonymous mechanism for complaint. Reports will be sent to the CEO and Board Chair and then routed and handled in accordance with this policy. As of January 2019, there is an email available via ASGCC’s website: email@example.com.
