2 March 31, 2017 THE U.P. CATHOLIC www.upcatholic.org COURTESY PHOTO The Iron River Knights of Columbus Council 2300 held a "Black Cow" project at the Iron Mountain Veterans Hos- pital. Approximately 75 patients, visitors and aides were served cookies, root beer floats and ice cream sundaes. Servers were Fourth Degree Knights (left to right) Arthur Aregoni, Chairman Stu Adair and Robert Remondini. Correction: In the March 10 issue of The U.P. Catholic, a story on financial misconduct reporting referred to a previous service used by the diocese for this purpose. The current information is below. A financial/fraud hotline solution provided by Red Flag Reporting is being used by the Diocese of Marquette. Red Flag Reporting is an independent organization that is dedicated to protecting organizations, their employees, and their assets. Simply put, this service allows employees to report any concerns regarding improper activity within the workplace including theft, safety issues, harassment, discrimination, substance abuse, and the like. The service is 100 percent independent from the Diocese of Marquette and allows reporters to remain completely anonymous if they choose. The use of this service is part of the on-going efforts by the diocese to ensure that strong internal controls and a positive tone at the top are in place. This type of service has been touted as a best practice by the likes of the Society for Human Resource Management, Harvard Law School, the American Institute of CPA's and others. Red Flag Reporting was chosen because it has a very positive tone that supports working for the common good. The intent and motiva- tion is to protect co-workers, assets, and repu- tations. It is also important to know that open doors remain open. Employees are encour- aged to speak directly with a supervisor when concerns are identified; however, the option of using Red Flag Reporting is also available. To file a report, simply visit www.redflagreporting.com and click on File a Report or dial (877) 647-3335 toll free to speak with a live operator 24/7. Either way the client code, 8005629745, will be needed. Posters are also hung in each parish and school with this information. Those making reports online or by phone have the option of remaining com- pletely anonymous. We are grateful to have this constructive service as a part of our work environment and while we certainly don't want it abused, we do want you to feel very comfortable using it to re- port legitimate concerns, said Timothy Thom- as, executive director of administration and inance. Please also know that we will take an 'innocent unless proven otherwise' approach with all reports. This service is not for general human resources related questions. You should continue to contact your manager or HR for those type of issues. Also, this service is not for 9-1-1 type emergencies. Red Flag Reporting aids diocesan financial accountability ILLUSTRATION To make it easy to report suspected financial misconduct in the diocese, a button labeled "Report Financial Misconduct" is at the bottom of most web pages at www.dioceseofmarquette.org.
