Whistleblower Policy and Procedures

The Washington Native Plant Society encourages employees, volunteers and others related to the organization to report any violation of policy, procedure, or ethics; illegal activity; or other misconduct by employees, volunteers, or others related to the organization. No person who in good faith reports a violation shall suffer harassment, retaliation or adverse employment consequence. An employee, board member, or volunteer who retaliates against someone who has reported a violation in good faith is subject to discipline up to and including termination of employment.

Procedures

Reports can be made directly to the executive director, board president or vice-president or any special committee constituted by the Board to receive and process such confidential information. To the extent that the activity or misconduct involves the executive director the report should be made directly to the board president or vice-president. Violations or suspected violations may be submitted on a confidential basis by the complainant or may be submitted anonymously. Reports of violations or suspected violations will be kept confidential to the extent possible, consistent with the need to conduct an adequate investigation.

Approved by the Executive Board: April 4, 2009
