VII.F. BSC Whistleblower Policy
1. The BSC’s adjudication procedures exist in order to fulfill its duties as a landlord in providing a safe living environment, and adhering to all applicable laws, while being as fair and observant of member rights as possible.
2. Retaliating against an alleged complainant, an alleged respondent, an alleged witness, or a member of an enforcement/appeals committee will be viewed as a form of harassment. Publicizing confidential information relating to an investigation will be considered a form of retaliation. Retaliation will thus be viewed as an infraction of the Conduct Code, and is an offense that can warrant a conditional contract, termination, or any other remedy normally at the disposal of an enforcement committee hearing a conduct case.
