Obligation to report suspected violations
Faculty, staff and students are strongly encouraged to promptly report suspected violations of these standards, laws and regulations, or related College policies and procedures to their supervisor, to their vice president or to anyone in management one is comfortable approaching. The College also has a confidential, toll free hotline (1-800-477-6064) that can be used to report suspected violations.
No member of the College community who, in good faith, reports a violation shall suffer retaliation, harassment or adverse employment consequences. An employee who retaliates against someone who has reported a violation in good faith is subject to discipline up to and including termination.
Acting in good faith
Anyone reporting a violation must be acting in good faith and have reasonable grounds for believing the information disclosed indicates a basis for such violation. Allegations that prove not to be substantiated and to have been made maliciously or falsely will be viewed as a serious offense subject to disciplinary action.
Consequences of violation
Material violations of this Code, of federal, state, or local laws and regulations, or of related College policies and procedures may result in disciplinary consequences up to and including termination.
