Ethics/Whistleblower Hotline

Best practices for most businesses include the implementation of a comprehensive and anonymous ethics hotline that is available to all employees. Such hotlines are so effective that the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners’ research shows that “hotlines are consistently the most effective fraud detection methods” and “hotlines are an effective way to encourage tips from employees who might otherwise not report misconduct.”

We are the only firm in Kentucky to offer a nationally recognized ethics hotline which provides our clients with a mechanism that supports the #1 way fraud is detected (employee tips) and the #1 way fraud is prevented (a strong tone at the top).
