Grievance Report Form

This form is intended to facilitate reports of alleged unethical, discriminatory, harassing, illegal, or fraudulent activity related to the National Federation of the Blind or one of its affiliates. Please consult the organization’s code of conduct for additional information, including alternative ways of reporting incidents.

Anyone reporting an incident must act in good faith, without malice to the NFB or any individual, and have reasonable grounds for believing the alleged misconduct has occurred. Please note that while anonymous reports will be taken seriously, they will be more difficult to verify and follow up with reporting individuals will not be possible.

If an incident has occurred that is actionable by law enforcement, please report those incidents to the appropriate authorities as soon as possible.

This form will be transmitted to the Office of the President of the National Federation of the Blind and to the members of the organization’s Code of Conduct Oversight Committee. Every effort will be made to maintain confidentiality, though it cannot be guaranteed.

No one who in good faith makes a report or cooperates in an investigation of alleged misconduct shall suffer retaliation; harassment; discrimination; or, if an employee, adverse employment consequences. Please note that false reports are actionable under the organization’s code of conduct.

Reports may be submitted anonymously. Anyone filing an anonymous report cannot be updated; however, please be assured all reports are taken seriously and will be investigated.

Individuals who submit contact information when filing a report can expect the following:

  • Email confirmation of report
  • Name and contact details of the individual(s) filing a report will remain confidential to the fullest extent possible.
  • Follow up from the Federation’s President or First-Vice President within five business days
  • Confirmation when an investigation has been initiated
  • Confirmation at conclusion of investigation

Note: All fields with an asterisk (*) are required.
