Coop Ethics Reports
sexual abuse prevention
As defined by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), child sexual abuse is any sexual activity with a child where consent is not or cannot be given. This includes sexual contact that is accomplished by force or threat of force, regardless of the age of the alleged victims, and all sexual conduct between an adult and a child, regardless of whether there is deception or the child understands the sexual nature of the activity.

Cooperative tax rules are a logical combination of the unique attributes of a cooperative and the income tax scheme in the Internal Revenue Code.

Cooperatives have been granted a certain degree of flexibility in their financial and tax planning and should exercise their options effectively to maximize benefits for members.
