Religious Freedom Coalition requires directors, officers and employees to observe high standards of business and personal ethics in the conduct of their duties and responsibilities. As employees and representatives of the Religious Freedom Coalition, we must practice honesty and integrity in fulfilling our responsibilities and comply with all applicable laws and regulations.
This Whistleblower Policy is intended to encourage and enable employees and others to raise serious concerns internally so that Religious Freedom Coalition can address and correct inappropriate conduct and actions. It is the responsibility of all board members, officers, employees and volunteers to report concerns about violations of Religious Freedom Coalition’s code of ethics or suspected violations of law or regulations that govern Religious Freedom Coalition’s operations.
It is contrary to the values of Religious Freedom Coalition for anyone to retaliate against any board member, officer, employee or volunteer who in good faith reports an ethics violation, or a suspected violation of law, such as a complaint of discrimination, or suspected fraud, or suspected violation of any regulation governing the operations of Religious Freedom Coalition. An employee who retaliates against someone who has reported a violation in good faith is subject to discipline up to and including termination of employment.
Religious Freedom Coalition has an open door policy and suggests that employees share their questions, concerns, suggestions or complaints with their supervisor. Supervisors and managers are required to report complaints or concerns about suspected ethical and legal violations in writing. Employees with concerns or complaints may also submit their concerns in writing directly to the Executive Director or the Chairman of the Board.
The Executive Director is responsible for ensuring that all complaints about unethical or illegal conduct are investigated and resolved. The Executive Director will work toward a resolution and will forward all complaints and reports to the Board of Directors.
Accounting and Auditing Matters
Religious Freedom Coalition’s Executive Director shall immediately notify the Board of Directors of any concerns or complaint regarding corporate accounting practices, internal controls or auditing and work with the committee until the matter is resolved.
