[See Editor’s Note](October 2020) Request for City of Asheville, NC whistleblower and employee anti-harassment policies

Hello City of Asheville, NC Government,

I'd like to make a public records request for the following information:

Please provide the current City of Asheville, NC Government "Whistleblower Statute" and policies, as well as any Statute and policies related to Employee Harassment or Retaliation.

Thank you for your assistance!

Editor’s Note: Sunshine Request makes no claim as to the veracity of any statements or information contained in any of the requests, or public records, we receive.

Editor’s Note 10/07/20: The above submission has been revised. As originally written, the request goes against our Policies, and was not an actionable request for public records that Sunshine Request will fulfill.

Sunshine Request will not fulfill the following types of requests:

☀️ Requests that include profanity, personal statements, opinions, possibly defamatory statements, or other unnecessary info that is not relevant to making a records request.

☀️ Requests that are incomplete, non-specific, or vague.

☀️ Requests that are only informational questions [rather than a specific request for public records], and requests that are not addressed to government entities.

Before submitting a request, please take a moment to review our tips for How to write and make a successful request. If you have additional questions about our site or how to make requests, please check out our FAQs or Policies page.

Thank you for using www.sunshinerequest.com!

    Good afternoon Sunshine Request,
    The responsive records are our Ethics Policy, which mentions retaliation under Mandatory Reporting of Illegal Acts or Violations of Any City Policy, and our Workplace Harassment Policy, which speaks to anti-retaliations specifically in response to an allegation of workplace harassment. We do not have a standalone whistleblower policy.
    Let me know if you have any questions and have a good weekend!
