Whistle-blower Protection Policy
ADMI directors, management and staff have to maintain high standards of business and personal ethics in the conduct of their duties and responsibilities. Working for ADMI expects honesty and integrity in fulfilling responsibilities and comply with all applicable laws and regulations.
This Whistle-blower Policy encourages and enables employees and others to raise serious concerns internally so that ADMI can address and correct inappropriate conduct and actions. It is the responsibility of all shareholders, officers, employees and volunteers to report concerns about violations of ADMI’s code of ethics or suspected violations of law or regulations that govern ADMI’s operations
It is against the values of ADMI for anyone to retaliate against any director, officer, and employee or volunteer who in good faith reports any 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 ADMI. 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.
ADMI has open policy and suggests that employees share their questions, concerns, suggestions or complaints with their supervisor without any hesitation. If you are not comfortable speaking with your supervisor or you are not satisfied with your supervisor’s response, you are encouraged to speak with Administrator, Director Studies or Head of Operations. Supervisors and managers need to report complaints or concerns about suspected ethical and legal violations in writing to the ADMI’s Compliance Officer Principal or MD who has the responsibility to investigate all reported complaints. Employees with concerns or complaints may also submit their concerns in writing directly to their supervisor or the Executive Director or the organization’s Compliance Officer.
The ADMI’s Compliance Officer is responsible for ensuring that all complaints about unethical or illegal conduct are investigated and resolved. The Compliance Officer will advise the Executive Director and/or the Board of Directors of all complaints and their resolution and will report at least annually to the board on compliance activities related to accounting or alleged financial improprieties.
Accounting and Auditing
The ADMI’s Compliance Officer shall immediately notify the Finance Committee of any concerns or complaint regarding corporate accounting practices, internal controls or auditing and work with the committee until the matter is resolved.
Anyone submitted a written complaint concerning a violation or suspected violation must be acting in good faith and have reasonable grounds for believing the information disclosed indicates a violation. Any allegations that prove not to be substantiated and which prove to have been made maliciously or knowingly to be false will be viewed as a serious disciplinary offense.
AViolations or suspected violations may be submitted on a confidential basis by the complainant. Reports of violations or suspected violations will be kept confidential to the extent possible, consistent with the need to conduct an adequate investigation.
Handling of Reported Violations
The ADMI’s Compliance Officer will notify the person who submitted a complaint and acknowledge receipt of the reported violation or suspected violation. All reports will be promptly investigated and appropriate corrective action will be taken if justified by the investigation.
