Whistleblower Policy

If any employee reasonably believes that some policy, practice, or activity of Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue is in violation of the law, that employee may submit a written complaint to the Executive Director.

It is the intent of Save-A-Pet to adhere to all laws and regulations that apply to the organization, and the underlying purpose of this Policy is to support the organization’s goal of legal compliance.  The support of all employees is necessary to achieve compliance with various laws and regulations.  An employee is protected from retaliation only if the employee brings the alleged unlawful activity, policy, or practice to the attention of the Executive Director and provides agency with a reasonable opportunity to investigate and correct the alleged unlawful activity.  The protection described below is only available to employees that comply with this requirement.

Save-A-Pet will not retaliate against an employee who, in good faith, has made a protest or raised a complaint against some practice of Save-A-Pet, or of another individual or entity with whom Save-A-Pet had a business relationship, or the basis of reasonable belief that the practice is in violation of law or a clear mandate of public policy.

Save-A-Pet will not retaliate against an employee who discloses or threatens to disclose to a supervisor or public body any activity, policy, or practice of Save-A-Pet that the employee reasonable 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 health, safety, welfare or protection of the environment.
