The City of Maryland Heights fosters, maintains and promotes equal employment opportunity in its recruitment, hiring, promotion, compensation training and development at all job levels without regard to race, color, age, gender, ethnicity, religion, national origin, disability or sexual orientation or any other characteristic protected by law.
The City of Maryland Heights prides itself on the high standards of excellence embodied by its operating principles and strives to create an awareness of and commitment to these standards in its employees. City employees are expected to personify these ideals in their relationships with residents, other persons conducting business with the city and with other employees. To establish and maintain public trust and confidence in city government, each city employee must not only conduct themselves ethically, but they must also scrupulously avoid the appearance of impropriety at all times.
All employees who suspect ethical violations, waste, abuse of resources, or fraud by other city employees have a right and an obligation to report their concerns. The city prohibits all forms of retaliation against employees who report violations, provide information or who assist in an investigation of violations of applicable laws when the employee reasonably believes the applicable law has been violated. For this purpose, retaliation is defined as any adverse employment action taken against an employee because he or she exercised rights under this policy (for example, discharge, demotion, reassignment, harassment, etc.).
Any complaint must be submitted in writing to a department head, human resources or to the City Administrator within 10 working days after learning of the alleged violation. Employees may make their complaint anonymously. Complaints alleging violations by the City Administrator must be filed in writing with the Mayor. All complaints will be promptly investigated and corrective actions taken, if warranted. Complaints of retaliation must be filed within 90 days of the alleged retaliatory incident.
