Best Practices for Whistleblower Programs:

10/04/2021 (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM)

1 CPE Credit

Description Ethics Line...Hotline...Helpline. Regardless of the name used, the communication method(s) you establish for employees, vendors, and others to report ethical concerns requires careful planning, implementation, and case management. Branding matters if you want to encourage people to speak up when they have concerns. Case management (and documentation) matters if you want to be successful in gathering the information needed to successfully pursue a case. This session includes a discussion of best practices for whistleblower programs, how the regulations and societal expectations have changed these programs, what employees most want and need to build trust internally, and much more!
