Conflict of Interest Policy

It is the policy of GMHC that all officers and employees avoid any conflict or appearance of conflict between their personal interests and the interests of the organization.

Generally, a conflict of interest may be considered to exist in those instances, including, but not limited to, the actions or activities of an individual on behalf of GMHC that also involve:

  • the obtaining of improper personal gain or advantage (which may include serving as a paid or unpaid consultant, director, officer or committee member of an outside organization or entity you must immediate report such role(s) to your immediate supervisor);
  • an adverse effect upon GMHC's interests or a negative impact on an employee’s performance (which may include involvement in other groups, consulting/independent contracting, writing for publication, speaking engagements, private practice or endorsement of a political candidate); or
  • the obtaining by a third party of an improper gain or advantage (which may include hiring or providing GMHC benefits to friends, relatives or their respective businesses).

If an individual feels that there is some question regarding any prospective personal activities or interests that might fall in these categories, she/he should submit the details and questions in writing to our Interim CEO Janet Weinberg immediately.

All officers and employees are charged with the responsibility of adhering to this policy.  Violation of this policy may result in serious disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment.
