An employee or volunteer of Chief Seattle Council, Boy Scouts of America, who reports waste, fraud, or abuse will not be terminated or otherwise retaliated against for making the report.
The report will be investigated and even if determined not to be waste, fraud, or abuse, the individual making the report will not be retaliated against. There will be no punishment for reporting problems - including termination of employment, demotion, suspension, harassment, failure to consider the employee for promotion, or any other kind of discrimination.
