Confidentiality

Our Promise to You

We will not disclose your identity or the substance of your confidential communications with us unless:

  • In the course of our discussion you give us permission to make a disclosure, or
  • We determine that these is imminent risk of serious harm to life or Institutional property, or
  • Disclosure is compelled or required by law.

What We Ask of You

The Ombuds Office is made available to all employees, with the express understanding that it provides them with a confidential, neutral, and alternate channel of communication. Because communications with the Ombuds Office are considered confidential and privileged, it is inappropriate for employees at any level to call an Ombuds as a witness in formal or administrative proceedings to reveal confidential communications. Employees who use the office will be considered to have agreed to abide by these features of the office.
