The Unethical Behavior Allegation System of EthicsGlobal guarantees anonymity to the complainant when making an allegation through any means available. Fear is understandable, especially when the situation being alleged becomes even more serious and closer in proximity. But the purpose of our interference is to guarantee the complainant that there is nothing to fear and that he or she will not be forced to give us any type of information that he or she does not desire to offer.
When you make a query or a complaint, you will be given a tracking code.

The decision is completely voluntary when to use the Ethics Line.
At any given moment, a complainant can access the report line in order to supply new information or inform of any recidivism for that matter. With the tracking code in hand, the new gathered data could be incorporated whenever you want, if the investigation remains ongoing.
Because internal crimes or offences gravely affect the heritage of the company, and thus hamper the employees sooner or later. As an example, a single fraud might cause casualties that force the company to reduce its number of employees, its salaries or other benefits.
