Whistleblower Policy

Employees are often the first to realize that there may be something seriously wrong within the Society. However, they may decide not to express their concerns because they feel that speaking up would be disloyal to their colleagues or to the Society. They may also fear harassment or victimization. In these circumstances, they may feel it would be easier to ignore the concern rather than report what may be a suspicion of malpractice.

This policy makes it clear that employees can voice their concerns without fear of victimization, subsequent discrimination or disadvantage. This Whistleblower Policy is intended to encourage and enable employees to raise serious concerns within the Society rather than overlooking a problem or seeking a resolution of the problem outside the Society.

This Policy applies to all employees and those contractors working for the Society. It is also intended to provide a method for other stakeholders (suppliers, customers, members etc.) to voice their concerns regarding the Society’s business conduct.

If you believe you have a whistleblower complaint, please print out our Whistleblower Form and submit it to the Secretary Treasurer of the Board. Contact information for the current Secretary Treasurer is available through the Executive Director, Staff Accountant, Executive Assistant or the Human Resource Coordinator. The form can also be completed online and submitted by email directly to the Secretary Treasurer.
