AUI is committed to providing its employees and other stakeholders with a confidential mechanism to report workplace concerns without fear of retaliation of any kind. AUI will not discriminate or retaliate against (discharge, demote, suspend, threaten, harass) any employee or other stakeholders who, in good faith, makes a report to assist in the investigation of a report of workplace concern.
Examples of workplace concerns may include:
- Safety, health, and environmental issues
- Financial reporting irregularity
- Embezzlement, fraud or theft
- Workplace violence, threats or harassment
- Sexual harassment
- Substance/alcohol abuse
- Threats to property
- Conflicts of interest
- Regulatory Compliance
An employee’s actions in reporting concerns that are protected by statute or regulation do not automatically render him/her immune from discharge or discipline for legitimate reasons. AUI will not reveal the identity of any person who makes a report who asks that his/her identity remain confidential, unless necessary to conduct an adequate investigation or compelled by judicial or other legal process.
AUI has established the Whistleblower Hotline as a mechanism in which employees and other stakeholder may confidentially and anonymously report workplace concerns. The Whistleblower hotline can be accessed globally 24/7/365 through the AUI website and/or by dialing the location’s direct access number.

The Whistleblower hotline is administered by the Chairman of the AUI Audit Committee, AUI President, AUI Controller, and AUI Board of Trustees in the case of any complaint against the AUI President. AUI is committed to identifying those staff members, Board members, or outside parties who will be responsible for coordinating investigations in consultation with the appropriate office (e.g. Human Resources, Administration, Fiscal, Safety and Health), as appropriate to the circumstances.
