Non-Retaliation Against Small Businesses Policy
Section 3 - Executive Policies
The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) is committed to fostering an environment in which small businesses may express questions or concerns regarding the department's regulations that affect small businesses or the administration of those regulations. The department will not tolerate retaliation against small business entities by department employees.
The department takes allegations of retaliation by its employees seriously. All reported allegations of retaliation against a small business entity will be thoroughly investigated by the department. Any employee found to have retaliated against a small business entity will be subject to discipline, up to and including termination.
A complaint should be filed within 30 calendar days of the alleged retaliation, unless a determination is made that the act or occurrence could not reasonably be detected until a later date. In such circumstances, the complaint should be filed within 30 calendar days from the date the act or occurrence could have reasonably been detected. A complaint of MoDOT retaliation against a small business entity may be made in writing to the Director of Audits and Investigations, Missouri Department of Transportation, P.O. Box 270, Jefferson City, Missouri 65102.
