University Compliance

Procedures for reporting violations or concerns

Procedures for reporting violations or concerns

The university's compliance effort focuses mainly on teaching members of the university community the appropriate compliance standards for the areas in which they work. Nevertheless, violations may occur. In addition, members of the university community may have concerns about matters that they are not sure represent violations. This section describes community members' responsibilities for reporting violations or concerns, and how these responsibilities may be carried out.

Each community member is expected to report violations or concerns about violations of this Code of Conduct that come to his/her attention. Managers have a special duty to adhere to the standards set forth in this Code of Conduct, to recognize violations and to enforce the standards. Disciplinary actions for proven violations of this Code, or for retaliation against anyone who reports possible violations, will be determined on a case-by-case basis and may include termination of employment. Individuals who violate the Code may also be subject to civil and criminal charges in some circumstances.

How to Report a Violation or Discuss a Concern

You may report violations or concerns to your immediate supervisor or department head, if appropriate. You may also call the University Compliance Hotline at the number established for this purpose: (314) 362-4998. Reports may be made anonymously to this number, if the caller so desires. This telephone line has no caller identification or number recognition.
