It is the policy of Northern Michigan University that all acts of fraud (fraudulent financial reporting, misappropriation of assets and corruption) will be taken seriously and dealt with appropriately. All violations should be reported, and a single incident is sufficient grounds for investigation, and may result in disciplinary action including termination, and/or arrest and prosecution. Further, it is the policy of Northern Michigan University that no employee will be subject to disciplinary action because he or she reports, or is about to report a violation or suspected violation of law, regulation, or rule promulgated pursuant to the laws of Michigan.
