Equal Opportunity Complaint Procedure
The Bank’s process provides for an immediate, thorough, and objective investigation of any claim of harassment or discrimination. Appropriate disciplinary action will be taken against any employee found to have engaged in harassment or discrimination.
Any employee who believes that he/she has been harassed, discriminated against, or retaliated against on the job, or who is aware of such conduct toward others, should provide a written or verbal complaint to his/her manager/supervisor, the Chief Internal Audit Officer, one of the Ethics Officers, or anonymously through Ethics Point, the Bank’s ethics hotline/site.
An applicant or contractor who believes he/she has been harassed, discriminated against, or retaliated against, or who is aware of such conduct toward others, should report the incident to the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion. A written complaint can be sent to the following email: OMWI@fhlbi.com. The complaint should be as detailed as possible, including the names of the individuals involved, the names of any witnesses, direct quotations when language is relevant, or any documented evidence.
The Bank will immediately begin an investigation of all allegations of discrimination and/or retaliation. To the extent possible, all complaints will be kept confidential.
The Bank strictly prohibits retaliation or reprisal for reporting alleged discrimination or retaliation, or for providing information or cooperating in any investigation of alleged discrimination or retaliation. Retaliation is itself a violation of this policy. Any persons engaged in such reprisal or retaliation will be subject to disciplinary action.
