Our mission is steadfast: to support the ongoing development and maintenance of an inclusive culture where every employee is respected and provided with equitable opportunities. We are dedicated to creating and nurturing the best possible work environment for everyone in our organization.

Zero Tolerance for Discrimination: We firmly prohibit any form of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation. Each complaint is taken seriously and handled with utmost diligence and sensitivity throughout the entire process.

Upholding Core Values: In addressing each issue, we uphold Jefferson County Commission’s core values—transparency, inclusion, integrity, innovation, energetic service, and safety. Confidentiality is paramount in our process, with information disclosed only to those who have a legitimate need to know, ensuring that the integrity of each investigation is maintained.

Encouraging Open Reporting: We encourage all employees to come forward with any concerns regarding violations of our policies or standards. For those who prefer to report anonymously, we provide a secure option through a third-party hotline provider, EthicsPoint. This platform ensures that reports can be made confidentially and without fear of retribution.

Reports submitted here may not receive an immediate response. For emergencies, contact local authorities immediately.

Together, we strive to ensure that the Jefferson County Commission remains a place of fairness, safety, and respect for all. Your voice is crucial in maintaining our culture of integrity and accountability.
