Non-Retaliation and Non-Retribution

No one will be subject to any adverse action just because they report what they honestly believe is a compliance violation.  However, if Duke University determines that someone purposely contrived, exaggerated, or otherwise distorted a report of wrongdoing - whether to protect themselves or to hurt someone else - that person will NOT be protected under the policy.
