Confidentiality Policy for Trauma Help For Women’s (THW) Board Members, THW’s employees, and THW’s volunteers
Please review, a condition of board service, employment and volunteer service with THW:
All information concerning Trauma Help For Women (THW), including but not limited to clients, former clients, staff, former staff, volunteers, former volunteers, financial data, and business records of Trauma Help for Women (THW) is confidential. “Confidential”means, but is not limited to, the fact that you are not permitted to disclose clients’ names or their issues in any way that could make their identity known. This is a basic component of client care and business ethics. You may generally speak about your work with Trauma Help For Women with people outside of the organization, including the programs THW offers and information on THW website that is available to the public.
Trauma Help for Women (THW) expects you to respect the privacy of clients and to maintain their personal and financial information as confidential. All records dealing with specific clients must be treated as confidential. Staff members are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of information relating to other staff members and volunteers, in addition to clients.
Failure to maintain confidentiality may result in termination of your employment, board service or volunteer service or other corrective action. This policy is intended to protect you as well as Trauma Help for Women (THW) because in extreme cases, violations of this policy also may result in personal liability.
Confidentiality is the preservation of privileged information. By necessity personal and private information is disclosed in a professional working relationship. Part of what you learn is necessary to provide services to the applicant or client; other information is shared within the development of a helping, trusting relationship. Therefore, most information gained about individual clients through an assignment is confidential in terms of the law, and disclosure could make you legally liable. Disclosure could also damage your relationship with the client and make it difficult to help the person.
Before you begin your assignment as a staff member and/or volunteer and/or board members you should be aware of the laws and penalties for breaching confidentiality. Although the agency is liable for your acts within the scope of your duty, giving information to an unauthorized person could result in the agency's refusal to support you in the event of legal action. Violation of the state statutes regarding confidentiality of records may be punishable upon conviction by fines or imprisonment or both.
