ATHLETE RESOURCES

The amendments to the Ted Stevens Olympic and Amateur Sport Act codified and further strengthened confidentiality and privacy protections for athletes who access the United States Olympic and Paralympic (USOPC) Office of the Athlete Ombuds and required the USOPC Office of the Athlete Ombuds to publish a “Confidentiality and Privacy Policy” in the Federal Register. The USOPC’s Athlete Ombuds’ website now includes a link to the Confidentiality and Privacy Policy and has been updated to include the Office of the Athlete Ombuds Duties and Principles of operation.

 

Athlete Ombuds 

The USOPC’s Office of the Athlete Ombuds offers independent, confidential advice to Elite Athletes regarding their rights and responsibilities in the Olympic and Paralympic Movement, and assists athletes with a broad range of questions, disputes, complaints and concerns.

 

Athlete Ombuds Confidentiality and Privacy Policy:

(A) In general.—The Office of the Athlete Ombuds shall maintain as confidential any information communicated or provided to the Office of the Athlete Ombuds in confidence in any matter involving the exercise of the official duties of the Office of the Athlete Ombuds. (B) Exception.—The Office of the Athlete Ombuds may disclose information described in subparagraph (A) as necessary to resolve or mediate a dispute, with the permission of the parties involved.(C) Judicial and administrative proceedings.—(i) In general.—The ombudsman and the staff of the Office of the Athlete Ombuds shall not be compelled to testify or produce evidence in any judicial or administrative proceeding with respect to any matter involving the exercise of the duties of the Office of the Athlete Ombuds.(ii) Work product.—Any memorandum, work product, notes, or case file of the Office of the Athlete Ombuds—(I) shall be confidential; and(II) shall not be—(aa) subject to discovery, subpoena, or any other means of legal compulsion; or (bb) admissible as evidence in a judicial or administrative proceeding. (D) Applicability.—The confidentiality requirements under this paragraph shall not apply to information relating to—(i) applicable federally mandated reporting requirements; (ii) a felony personally witnessed by a member of the Office of the Athlete Ombuds;(iii) a situation, communicated to the Office of the Athlete Ombuds, in which an individual is at imminent risk of serious harm; or (iv) a congressional subpoena.

 

For clarification and ease of reference as to the above information:

 

Consistent with the USTA’s Constitution, Bylaws, Regulations, Conflict of Interest Policy for USTA Volunteers & Volunteer Code of Ethics, Whistleblower Hotline, and the policies, procedures, and statements therein, the USTA prohibits its employees, contractors, agents, volunteers, or related investigative entities for which it has oversight, from threatening or taking action against an athlete for disclosing information to or asking for assistance of the USOPC’s Office of the Athlete Ombuds.
