Anonymous Reporting Hotline

Laradon is committed to the highest possible standards of ethical, moral and legal conduct. In conjunction with this commitment and Laradon’s commitment to open and transparent communication, this Anonymous Reporting Hotline will provide an avenue for employees to offer ideas, suggestions and comments as well as to raise concerns anonymously and with reassurance that they will be protected from reprisals or victimization for reporting in good faith. However, if an employee feels that their anonymity is not required they should follow current protocol procedure for reporting concerns and the current incident reporting procedure for reporting mistreatment, abuse, neglect and exploitation. This procedure applies to all Laradon employees, including on-call, part time, temporary and contract employees.

Reports Can Be Made Using the Following Methods

Reporters to the hotline will have the ability to remain confidential and anonymous if they choose. Information provided to the hotline may be the basis of an internal and/or external investigation. The reporter’s anonymity will be protected to the extent possible by law. However, the reporter’s identity may become known during the course of the investigation because of the information you have provided. Reports are submitted by Lighthouse to Laradon, and may or may not be investigated at the sole discretion of Laradon.

Employment related concerns should continue to be reported through normal channels such as the supervisor, Department Director, and then the Deputy Director per the current LPM on Protocol.

Although reporters are not expected to prove the truth of an allegation, the employee submitting a report needs to demonstrate in their hotline report that there are sufficient grounds for concern.

How Your Report Will Be Handled

The action taken will depend on the nature of the concern. The Chairman and the Vice Chairman of the Laradon Board of Directors will receive all reports involving fraud. All other reports will be received by the Deputy Director and the Director of Quality Assurance/Human Resources.

Initial Inquiries

Initial inquiries will be made to determine whether an investigation is appropriate, and the form that it should take. Some concerns may be resolved by agreed upon action without the need for an investigation.

Feedback to Reporter

Whether reported directly to Laradon personnel or through the hotline, the individual submitting a report will be given the opportunity to receive follow-up on their concern:

  • Acknowledging that the concern was received;
  • Indicating how the matter will be dealt with;
  • Giving an estimate of the time that it will take for a final response;
  • Reporting whether initial inquiries have been made;
  • Reporting whether further investigations will follow, and if not, why not.

The amount of contact between the individual submitting a report and the body investigating the concern will depend on the nature of the issue, the clarity of information provided, and whether the employee remains accessible for follow-up. Further information may be sought from the reporter.
