KPMG LLP’s Ethics and Compliance Hotline is a reporting mechanism that facilitates reporting of possible illegal, unethical, or improper conduct as outlined in KPMG’s Code of Conduct. The Ethics and Compliance Hotline is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, when:
The hotline is administered by an independent, third-party provider and 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.
When reporting via the Ethics and Compliance Hotline, whether via the Web or the phone, you may choose to identify yourself, which often facilitates the firm’s ability to fully address your report. KPMG has a policy of confidentiality, and will protect your identity to the extent permitted by law and professional standards, and consistent with the firm's need to conduct a thorough investigation, if warranted, or to take other appropriate action.
KPMG has a strict policy of non-retaliation for good faith reporting by firm personnel, even if sufficient evidence is not found to substantiate the concern.
