Bentley has an ongoing commitment to ethics and social responsibility and recognizes its obligation to employees to maintain the highest ethical standards. Bentley has established a hotline to provide a way to anonymously and confidentially report activities that may involve improper conduct or violations of Bentley policies. Bentley has selected EthicsPoint to provide this service. You may file a report on this web site, or you may do so by telephone through the EthicsPoint Call Center by dialing toll-free 1-866-ETHICSP (866-384-4277).
Bentley has established a number of policies and procedures for handling the concerns and complaints of all members of its community. This hotline is not a substitute for, nor does it supersede, any existing reporting methods or protocols. Instead, the EthicsPoint system is intended to offer an additional means of reporting in situations in which the individual making the report is unable or unwilling to use the existing procedures, and provides a method of reporting issues or complaints anonymously.
Upon submission of a report, EthicsPoint will promptly forward the report to the Special Assistant to the President, Audit Committee Chairman, and Executive Director of Human Resources for review and investigation. All reports will be investigated promptly and discreetly, receiving careful consideration with the objective of addressing any improper conduct or violation of University policy. If you file a report through EthicsPoint, you are encouraged to return here or call back after 7 business days. Bentley may have information for you regarding your report, or may request additional information from you that is necessary in order to complete the investigation. In all cases, your anonymity will be protected by EthicsPoint. No retaliatory action will be taken against anyone for reporting or inquiring in good faith about potential violations of Bentley’s policies, or for seeking guidance with respect to suspected violations.
This hotline should not be used to report human resource matters, or issues concerning discrimination or harassment. Matters of this nature usually cannot be appropriately addressed when the complainant chooses to remain anonymous, and Bentley may not be able to investigate such allegations in an anonymous report. These matters should be reported using the existing policies and procedures designed to effectively address them. Please use the recommended procedures and contact the appropriate office for the following types of issues:
