LESC COMPLIANCE

CORPORATE COMPLIANCE NOTICE

Compliance Hotline
(866) 802-3114

The Lower Eastside Service Center’s (LESC) Code of Conduct and Compliance Plan are intended to ensure LESC ’s operations are conducted in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations as well as all LESC’s policies and procedures and in accordance with our mission, vision and core values. It is the policy of LESC that its board members, employees, independent contractors, agents, volunteers and interns should comply fully with all applicable laws and regulations at all times.

LESC board members, employees, independent contractors, agents, volunteers and interns have a duty to report any actual or suspected illegal, unethical, or improper conduct. The LESC Compliance Hotline is a reporting mechanism that facilitates the reporting of possible violations when the regular channels of communication have proven ineffective, or are impractical under the circumstances.

If you have any questions or good faith concerns at any time regarding the legality or compliance of anything you or anyone else is doing on behalf of LESC, you are encouraged to utilize the reporting "chain of command" by contacting your supervisor or department head.  If you are unsure about where to go with your concerns, or you feel uncomfortable reporting through normal channels of communication, or wish to raise the issue anonymously, you should access the Compliance Hotline through an anonymous phone call to (866) 802-3114.  The Compliance Hotline is designed to protect your confidentiality, and your anonymity, if requested.  

Regardless of how a report is made, LESC prohibits retaliation in any form against anyone who, in good faith, reports a possible violation or who participates in an investigation, even if sufficient evidence is not found to substantiate the concern. LESC will take appropriate action against any individual determined to be engaging in retaliatory conduct.
