Section 3.R – Whistleblower

Vance-Granville will not retaliate against an employee who, in good faith, has raised a complaint against some practice of VGCC or of an employee of VGCC, or of another individual or entity with whom VGCC has a business relationship, on the basis of a reasonable belief that the practice is in violation of law, or a clear mandate or public policy. VGCC also will not retaliate against employees who disclose or threaten to disclose to a supervisor or a public body, any activity, policy, or practice of VGCC that the employee reasonably believes is in violation of a law, or a rule or regulation mandated pursuant to law or is in violation of a clear mandate or public policy concerning the health, safety, welfare, or protection of the environment.

If any employee reasonably believes that some policy, practice, or activity of VGCC is in violation of law, or a clear mandate or public policy, a written complaint must be filed by that employee with the Human Resources Executive Director.

An employee is protected from retaliation only if he or she brings the alleged unlawful activity, policy, or practice to the attention of VGCC and provides VGCC with a reasonable opportunity to investigate and correct the alleged unlawful activity.
