What happens after I voice a concern?

The General Assembly seeks to be prompt and thorough in addressing all concerns.  Concerns based on the Workplace Expectations Policy are addressed through an informal resolution process, which is intentionally flexible to allow for a wide variety of options. As every situation is unique, every reported concern is addressed individually, based on the circumstances.

Will my report be confidential?

Concerns based on the Workplace Expectations Policy are treated with the greatest degree of confidentiality possible.  

Under the Workplace Expectations Policy, records of concerns and resolutions are not subject to public inspection.  

Individuals voicing concerns under the policy may also request that the matter and their identity be kept confidential, except as necessary to resolve the concerns, take any remedial steps, or provide any accommodations.
