Bradley’s policy prohibits the taking of retaliatory action against anyone for reporting or inquiring in good faith about potential breaches of University policies or for seeking guidance on how to handle suspected breaches.
The University encourages its employees and students to attempt to resolve problems or disputes through the established channels whenever possible. Procedures are outlined in the appropriate employment manuals, specific labor contracts, and faculty, administrative, classified and student handbooks.
The University expects that reports submitted through the EthicsPoint system will be made in a good faith effort to address legitimate issues needing correction, or to otherwise provide reliable information. Reports found to be intentionally false or misleading serve only to degrade the level of trust and openness with employees, students and other members of the University community. Such reports are unwelcome and violate the terms and conditions the reporter must agree to prior to submitting a report.
