Non-Retaliation and Non-Retribution for Reporting in Good Faith
South Country is committed to maintaining a culture that promotes the prevention, detection, and resolution of instances of conduct that do not conform to laws, regulations, policies, and procedures, or to our Code of Conduct (web).
We understand that employees may not report concerns if they feel they will be subject to retaliation, retribution, or harassment for reporting the concern. Therefore, a non-retaliation/non-retribution policy was established by South Country Health Alliance to reassure employees who wish to report concerns to the Compliance Department.
Board members, directors, managers, and employees are not permitted to engage in retaliation, retribution, or any form of harassment against an employee who, in good faith, reports a compliance concern. Anyone who is involved in any act of retaliation or retribution against an employee who has reported suspected misconduct in good faith will be subject to disciplinary action.
