What is EthicsPoint?
Why do we need a system like EthicsPoint?
What type of situations should I report?
Where do these reports go? Who can access them?
If I see a violation, shouldn't I just report it to my manager, security, or human resources and let them deal with it?
Why should I report what I know? What’s in it for me?
Isn’t this system just an example of someone watching over me?
Does management really want me to report?
May I report using either the Internet or the telephone?
I am concerned that the information I provide EthicsPoint will ultimately reveal my identity. How can you assure me that will not happen?
It is my understanding that any report I send from an institution computer generates a server log that shows every website that my PC connects with, and won’t this log identify me as a report originator?
Can I file a report from home and still remain anonymous?
What if I want to be identified with my report?
Is the telephone toll-free hot line confidential and anonymous too?
What if my boss or other managers are involved in a violation? Won’t they get the report and start a cover-up?
I am not sure if what I have observed or heard is a violation of institution policy, or involves unethical conduct, but it just does not look right to me. What should I do?
What if I remember something important about the incident after I file the report? Or what if the company has further questions for me concerning my report?
Are these follow-ups on reports as secure as the first one?
I am aware of some individuals involved with unethical conduct, but it doesn't affect me. Why should I bother reporting it?
Can I still file a report if I don’t have access to the Internet?
