A Commitment To Success
Life Skills Autism Academy ("Life Skills") has a commitment to compliance. It is important to us that we provide an ethical and compassionate approach to every single person we serve.
Life Skills has a compliance program that is modeled after the Office of Inspector General's Seven Elements of an Effective Compliance Program. We screen all potential employees to ensure they meet background screening requirements and are eligible to participate in federal healthcare programs. We distribute our Company Code of Conduct
during an employee's first days on the job. We want our employees to understand their responsibility to not only adhere to these standards of conduct, but also actively participate in and promote compliance within their workplace.
If our employees have a workplace concern, we encourage them to speak to a supervisor and the Corporate Compliance Department. If an employee does not feel comfortable talking to someone within the Company about the issue, he or she can call an external toll-free Compliance Hotline at 1-866-842-7126
to report concerns 24 hours a day. Callers may remain anonymous when they report their concerns.
Employees, contractors and other stakeholders, including our service recipients and their families, can also report concerns through our website.
