About This Site
The Vertellus ethics hotline and this page are methods of reporting conduct that may be illegal, unethical, or otherwise inconsistent with Vertellus Code of Conduct.
We always encourage employees and others to raise any concerns with members of Vertellus’ management team. If you do not feel comfortable doing so, or do not know whom to contact, you can make a report by telephone or securely over this site. We realize that some people may be more comfortable reporting anonymously. For that reason, both Vertellus’ telephone hotline and this site are hosted by EthicsPoint to provide you with an anonymous and confidential means of making a report.
If you choose to remain anonymous, it is important that you check the status of your report 6-7 business days later. In order to fully investigate a claim, it is often necessary to request additional information. Of course, you are always free to identify yourself when making a report.

You may use either of the following two methods to submit a report:
After you complete your report you will be assigned a unique code called a "report key." Write down your report key and password and keep them in a safe place. After 5-6 business days, use your report key and password to check your report for feedback or questions.
