Medtronic Voice Your Concern Line

Medtronic established this site to provide an electronic method to raise concerns or allegations of non-compliance confidentially and, if desired, anonymously. This site and the toll-free hotline are operated by an independent company, EthicsPoint.

All reports submitted using this website go directly to EthicsPoint and then routed to the appropriate persons within Medtronic, who will ensure that each report is handled in a professional and confidential manner. When you submit a report, you have the choice to remain anonymous or identity yourself. Either way, the more detail you provide in your report, the more effectively Medtronic can address your concern.

Please Note:

This is not a 911 or Emergency Service: Do not use this site to report events presenting an immediate threat to life or property. Reports submitted through this service may not receive an immediate response. If you require emergency assistance, please contact Medtronic Security or your local authorities.

Medtronic Patients: If you have questions or concerns about your Medtronic device, please contact Medtronic Patient Services by phone, fax, or US mail. If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your doctor or 911 if in the United States.

Help for Reporters

As employees, we are obligated to report situations which may be potentially illegal; violate our Code of Conduct or stated company policies such as local Business Conduct Standards; expose Medtronic, its employees, officers or directors to liability; damage the reputation of Medtronic; or require immediate attention.

No matter where you work in the company, you have an obligation to report suspected misconduct so that Medtronic can quickly take corrective action. View a list of the types of issues you must report.

Where to raise a concern depends in some degree on the nature of the issue and the people involved. Typically, the best place to raise an issue is within your own department or business unit. In most cases, your manager, your local Human Resources representative, or your business unit/geography’s management is closest to the issue and may be the best place to go to respond quickly.

If you are uncomfortable reporting an issue within your business unit, or local reporting does not make sense based upon the nature of the issue or people involved, other options include:

Yes. You are not required to provide your name or other information that might identify you. All calls and electronic web reports are caller/user-identification blocked, allowing you to remain anonymous if you prefer.

If you choose to remain anonymous, Medtronic may be limited in its investigation and response. Obviously, certain individuals have to know the circumstances about the report and the specifics of the allegation for effective investigation and follow-up. Also, there may be times when Medtronic has a legal obligation to make available to third parties information about reported compliance issues. In these situations, your identity may become known during the course of the investigation. If this occurs, Medtronic will strive to keep your identity confidential and prevent any retaliation based upon the report.

Go to Frequently Asked Questions for more about anonymous and confidential reporting.

Any employee who seeks advice in good faith and raises a concern or reports suspected misconduct is doing the right thing. Medtronic will not tolerate retaliation against that person. Anyone who engages in retaliatory action will face discipline, which may include any form of discipline up to and including termination, regardless of that person’s position or stature within the company.

If you believe that you or someone you know has been retaliated against for raising an ethical or compliance-related issue, immediately contact the Voice Your Concern Line; a business unit or geography's compliance leader; Medtronic legal counsel; a human resources representative; or Tom Schumacher, the Medtronic Chief Ethics & Compliance Officer.
