All colleagues, including supervisors and managers, have the affirmative duty to promptly report actual or potential wrongdoing, including violations of law, regulation, policy, procedure, or the INSPIRIS Code of Conduct (Code).

An "open-door policy" sall be maintained at all levels of management for colleagues to report problems that shall be acted upon in an appropriate manner.  If the problem is not satisfactorily resolved, the colleague may proceed up the supervisory chain to a higher level or communicate with the Human Resources Department.

Any supervisor, manger, or colleague who conducts or condones retaliation, retribution, or harassment in any way will be subject to discipline, up  to and including termination of employment.

Colleagues cannot exempt themselves from the consequences of wrongdoing by reporting theirnown wrongdoing, although self-reporting may be taken into account in determining the appropriate course of corrective counseling action.

The Consequences

If you engage in, encourage, condone by overlooking or fail to report any fraudulent, abusive or wasteful activities, behavior or practices, you will receive corrective counseling, up to and including the termination of your employment.  You may also be subject to criminal charges and be held personally financially liable.
