Any dishonest or improper act by an employee (i.e., violates the law, wastes money or endangers public health or safety) is of great concern to the University. All employees, vendors and/or customers are encouraged to report suspected improprieties. Employees are encouraged to report allegations directly to their supervisor or to a higher level if the supervisor is involved. Additionally, allegations may be reported to the Office of Internal Auditing via an online mechanism that allows you to remain anonymous.
If you are aware that a crime has been committed, you should report it immediately to University Police.

The University is committed to protecting employees who, in good faith, report suspected improprieties or illegal activities. It is unlawful in Florida to discharge, threaten or otherwise bring a personal action against an employee who reports a violation of law or waste of public funds, property or labor; unless the employee knows the report is malicious, false or frivolous. You are protected by Florida Statutes §112.3187 and §112.31895.
Employees are encouraged to report suspected improprieties "on the record". However, the University does maintain an anonymous reporting mechanism. The University makes reasonable efforts to prevent disclosure of the identity of an employee, who reports alleged misconduct. However, the identity of an employee may become obvious to others due to the nature of the information. Depending on the specifics of the allegation, the employee's identity may be disclosed:
