Civil Rights & Diversity

Compassion Services International is committed to providing equal opportunity to all employees, volunteers, and applicants for employment and volunteer service. The Notification and Federal Employee Anti-discrimination and Retaliation Act of 2002 (No FEAR Act) is intended to reduce the incidence of workplace discrimination within the federal government by making agencies and departments more accountable. 


Compassion Services International stands behind the International Declaration of Human Rights.

  • WHISTLEBLOWER protection

    The Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act of 2012 includes Compassion Service International's obligations regarding the implementation and enforcement of nondisclosure agreements consistent with federal whistleblower protections. If you believe that you have been the victim of whistleblower retaliation, you may file a written complaint (Form OSC-11) with the U.S. Office of Special Counsel at 1730 M St. NW, Suite 218, Washington, DC 20036-4505 or at the OSC website.


    “Whistleblower disclosures can save lives as well as billions of taxpayer dollars. They play a critical role in keeping our government honest, efficient and accountable. Because whistleblowers help to root out waste, fraud, and abuse, and protect public health and safety, federal laws strongly encourage employees to disclose wrongdoing and protect whistleblowers from retaliation.”

  • HARASSMENT PREVENTION

    Compassion Services International is committed to maintaining high standards of conduct in the workplace and for volunteer service overseas and providing all staff and volunteers a work and volunteer service environment that is free from harassment, including sexual harassment. Please review our Harassment Prevention Policy that is currently in place. 


    To contact CSi to report harassment (including sexual harassment), to seek guidance or counseling, or to file a claim of harassment (including sexual harassment) staff, applicants for employment, volunteers, or applicants for volunteer service may contact CSi by telephone at (405) 625-4210, via e-mail at compassionservicesintl7@gmail.com, or by mail at P.O. Box 14, Saint Charles, MO 63302.


    CSi is in the process of establishing an effective grievance process. We will be providing anti-harassment training to our managers and employees, and taking immediate and appropriate action when an employee complains. CSi will strive to create an environment in which employees feel free to raise concerns and are confident that those concerns will be addressed. We have a zero tolerance policy on harassment of any kind. 


    Employees/volunteers are encouraged to inform the harasser directly that the conduct is unwelcome and must stop. Employees/volunteers should also report harassment to management at an early stage to prevent its escalation. If you have followed policy and still feel that you have not received assistance from CSi directly, you may contact the EEOC for additional resources in seeking relief.
