Our Ethics and Compliance
TSSF works to the highest standards of integrity. We have a zero-tolerance approach to all forms of fraud, bribery and corruption.
Advice and Guidance
The Ethics Office assists employees navigating complex situations where ethical decision making is key. We guide staff to describe their issue of concern, identify the rules and regulations that may apply, examine their options, and understand their potential consequence. Our aim is to empower to make their own ethical decisions, which do not harm themselves, the people we serve, or TSSF.
Standard setting and policy advocacy
Fostering a culture of ethics and accountability require frequent and consistent advocacy. The Ethics Office advocate for the incorporation of ethical standard into TSSF's organizational policies, practices and operations, which ultimately contributes to giving a voice to the voiceless. Protection from abuse conduct, prevention of sexual exploitation and abuse, anti-fraud and anti-corruption, privacy data protection and confidentiality are just a few of the issues the Ethics Office provides a guidance on.
Protection against retaliation
At TSSF we are committed to providing safe and respectful work environment for all our employees. The whistleblower protection policy is designed to give protection from retaliation to employees who wish to speak up against misconduct and wrong doing. Retaliation means any action-recommended, threatened or taken that is meant to punish intimidate or injure the employee for engaging in a protected activity. It applies to both current and former employees. Regardless of their contract type or duration. If you believe you have been retaliated against reach out to us confidentially at email@example.com
