Whistleblowing Hotline

Businesses need to do as much as possible to protect themselves against financial crime, misconduct or ethical issues

Businesses need to protect themselves against financial crime or ethical issues.

Protected Disclosures Act 2014 - Have you considered the implications?

With the recently enacted Protected Disclosures Act 2014, employers are expected to comply with the pan-sectoral legislative framework for the protection of whistleblowers. The legislation pays particular attention to protecting the identity of a whistleblower and the employer is required to take all reasonable steps to ensure confidentiality.

For more information on the act, please see our Protected Disclosures: Practical Steps for Employers brochure.

 

KPMG's Whistleblowing Hotline

In increasingly turbulent operating environments, businesses need to do as much as possible to protect themselves against financial crime, misconduct or ethical issues. Our experience shows that many crimes go unreported as employees fear reprisal for reporting.

KPMG’s Forensic practice provides an independent confidential service to help address this issue – KPMG Whistleblowing Hotline.

Hotlines have proven to be one of the more expedient and inexpensive whistleblowing solutions to date, and have become an essential component to any risk management strategy. It also allows the employer to take prompt, effective action.

We will provide your business with:

  • A call centre consisting of live operators - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year 
  • A secure client email address which employees can use in complete confidentiality

  • Secure reports sent to a designated person within your business
