Policy: Therapeutic Resources Conflict of Interest and Whistle Blower Policy
This policy is in conjunction with our policy for Compliance and Ethics. It provides specific guidelines for all individuals that work with Therapeutic Resources, so that they can practice honesty and integrity in fulfilling their responsibilities in order to comply with all applicable laws and regulations. This policy will address concerns regarding questionable accounting and audit matters by employees, managers, directors, consultants and supervisors of Therapeutic Resources on a confidential anonymous basis. The policy will address the receipt, retention and treatment of complaints received by the organization regarding accounting, internal controls or auditing matters. The policy will address the protection of directors, volunteers, and employees, reporting concerns from retaliatory actions. This policy also serves to encourage all employees and consultants affiliated with Therapeutic Resources to contact Executive Directors if they feel a conflict of interest arise. A conflict of interest occurs when an individual is in a position to result in personal gain as a result of the organizations work.
All individuals who work with Therapeutic Resources will be encouraged via orientation training that they are able to easily communicate any unethical or questionable actions that they observe or detect to the compliance officer either anonymously or identified. This can be done by either:
A. Suggestion Box
F. Face to Face meeting with the Therapeutic Resources Compliance Officer or the Executive Directors
This pertains to gifts of significant value, (No individual gifts of significant value). The compliance officer then brings the concern immediately to the audit committee chairs. The audit committee is the COO, CFO, and the executive Directors. The committee chairs will document the concern, and immediately investigate the concerns. The committee chairs will also notify the sender, if identified and acknowledge receipt of the concern within 5 business days if possible.
The reports will be investigated by the audit committee and appropriate corrective action will be taken. The action will include a follow up or conclusion with the sender for a complete closure of the concern. The audit committee has the authority to retain outside legal counsel or police or accountant, or other resource deemed necessary to conduct a full and complete investigation of the allegations.
Anyone who reports a concern must be doing so in good faith. If made with malicious or reckless intent, knowing that the allegations are false the action will be viewed as a serious disciplinary offense and may result in dismissal and termination of employment, and/or could include a civil lawsuit.
All reports of concern shall be kept by the audit committee, and kept confidential. Senders who identify potential issues of concern will be kept confidential and senders will be protected by the organization from retaliation by others. This whistleblower policy serves to notify all that anyone who retaliates to the sender of concern will be disciplined up to and including dismissal and/or termination.
