Everyone associated with Catholic Health Initiatives has a responsibility to behave ethically and appropriately. However, sometimes the “right” way to act is unclear. Support for ethical decision-making is always available to CHI employees through CHI’s Our Values and Ethics at Work Reference Guide.

As an organization and as individuals, we are responsible for promptly reporting potential violations of law, regulation, policy or procedure. Employees are protected from retaliation for making a good-faith report, complaint or inquiry. The CHI reporting process is:

    • Speak with your supervisor or another manager

  • If a manager/supervisor is not available, or you are not comfortable speaking with him or her, or you believe the matter has not been adequately resolved, contact your human resources representative or your local corporate responsibility officer

  • If you want to report a concern anonymously, there are two options:

  • Call the Ethics at Work Line, 1-800-261-5607
  • File a report at www.ethicspoint.com

Both confidential reporting options are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Reports are received by trained staff who document and forward information to your local and/or national corporate responsibility officer for appropriate action. Reports are not traced or recorded, and you may remain anonymous if you wish.

Employees and others are encouraged to use these procedures as needed to make the right decisions and support others in doing the same.
