Volunteer Confidentiality Policy

Respecting the privacy of clients, donors, members, staff, and volunteers is a basic value of ReEstablish Richmond. Personal and financial information is confidential and should not be disclosed or discussed with anyone without permission or authorization from the executive director, Kate Ayers. Care shall always be taken to ensure that unauthorized individuals do not overhear any discussion of confidential information and that documents containing confidential information are not left in the open or inadvertently shared. Employees, volunteers, and board members of ReEstablish Richmond may be exposed to information which is confidential and/or privileged and proprietary in nature. It is the policy of ReEstablish Richmond that such information must be kept confidential both during and after employment or volunteer service. Staff and volunteers, including board members, are expected to return materials containing privileged or confidential information at the time of separation from employment or expiration of service. Unauthorized disclosure of confidential or privileged information is a serious violation of this policy and will subject the person(s) who made the unauthorized disclosure to appropriate discipline, including removal/dismissal.
