The Hotline is available to firm partners and employees, as well as clients, contractors, vendors and others in a business relationship with KPMG, including other member firms whose partners and employees may be working with the U.S. firm on engagements with U.S.- based clients. If you are unsure about where to go with your concerns, or you feel uncomfortable reporting through normal channels of communication, or wish to raise the issue anonymously, you should access the Ethics and Compliance Hotline.
The Ethics & Compliance Hotline operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and is run by an independent, third-party provider. The Ethics and Compliance Hotline is designed to protect your confidentiality, and your anonymity, if requested. The Hotline provides a web-based reporting capability as well as a toll-free telephone-based service. Regardless of how a report is made, KPMG prohibits retaliation against anyone who, in good faith, reports a possible violation or who participates in an investigation, even if sufficient evidence is not found to substantiate the concern. KPMG will take appropriate action against any individual determined to be engaging in retaliatory conduct.
