Policies

 

Below are summaries of some of our policies.  For more information, please contact our office.

 

Nondiscrimination - MayDay is committed to serving victims and their support networks without regard to race, color, religion, creed, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, marital or veteran status.  MayDay advocates are trained to serve all members of the community and connect them to other resources when needed to meet clients' needs.

Anyone who believes that he or she has experienced discrimination by anyone from MayDay, Inc., please notify the Executive Director or the Board of Directors within 180 days of the discrimination. 

 

Privacy - Ensuring privacy and confidentiality are essential to our mission and often to the safety of our clients.  Employees are required to acknowledge and abide by MayDay's privacy policies and will be terminated if they don't live up to that responsibility. 

 

We will arrange alternate locations or methods of  communication  if needed to protect client privacy and safety.

 

Reporting - MayDay employees are not mandatory reporters of abuse like most government workers in education, law enforcement, social services and other areas.  This helps us reach out to victims who might avoid seeking help for fear of consequences, such as deportation or losing custody of their children. 

 

Employment - Employees are required to have criminal background checks and pre-employment drug testing before working at MayDay.
