Human Resources Policies

Dominican strives through its policies to provide all employees with a safe, positive and welcoming environment.

Current employees may also reference these documents on the intranet’s Human Resources page.

Dominican seeks to protect its integrity, ensure the highest standards of employee conduct, and adhere to all applicable laws and regulations. The university therefore encourages employees to report any reasonable belief that a legal violation has potentially occurred due to any policy, practice or activity by Dominican or its employees, students, vendors or other members of the university community. The employee may report any such activity on a confidential basis. Alternatively, the employee may submit an anonymous report that includes sufficient specific facts to enable Dominican to investigate the matter.

Dominican will not retaliate against an employee who, in good faith, reports any potentially improper activity. Nor will Dominican tolerate any other employee retaliating against or attempting to influence the employee who submits the report. Any employee who does so will be subject to discipline up to and including termination of employment.

Dominican will conduct a prompt and appropriate investigation into all reports of potentially improper activity. All employees are required to cooperate with Dominican’s internal investigations by providing any requested information and truthfully and fully answering questions. Failure to cooperate with or impeding an investigation, or knowingly providing false information, will result in disciplinary action. Reports of potentially improper activity and related investigations will be kept confidential to the extent possible. 

Anyone found to have engaged in improper activity will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment. Civil liability or criminal prosecution of the wrongdoer may also result.

Anonymous reports may be made via the Campus Conduct Hotline by calling (866) 943-5787. Visit the Campus Conduct web page for more information. This third-party service will not record your call or keep your phone number, and identifying information such as gender will not be included in the complaint summary. A case reference number will be provided for status updates..

 

Students are encouraged to report complaints to the university. An individual may contact the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education for a complaint review.
