What is the Hotline?

The Hotline is a secure and confidential reporting tool created by NAVEX Global, Inc. (“NAVEX”) to assist management and employees to work together in addressing fraud, abuse and other misconduct in the workplace, all while cultivating a positive work environment. You may contact the Hotline anonymously from most locations subject to local regulations. Verisk does not tolerate reprisal or retaliation against those who report concerns in good faith.

Why do we need a system like the Hotline?

We believe that our employees are our most important asset. By creating open channels of communication, we can promote a positive work environment and maximize productivity.

What is a Whistleblower?

A Whistleblower is a person who raises concerns of actual or suspected illegal or unethical behavior occurring in the workplace. A Whistleblower’s report must be made in good faith.

Can I report my concerns on this platform anonymously?

It depends. Where allowed by local laws, the platform will accept reports anonymously. It is helpful to provide your name and contact information to allow for follow up questions related to the investigation. Furthermore, it is against Verisk’s Whistleblower Policy to retaliate against a person who submitted a report in good faith.

How will I know any action that is taken on my report?

When you submit the report, you will be issued a Report Key. Please write it down and keep it in a safe place. We ask you to use this Report Key along with the password of your choice to return to EthicsPoint through the website or telephone hotline. You can use this Report Key in the future to provide additional information or any follow up questions.

Will my report be kept confidential?

To the extent practicable, all reports are limited to those necessary to investigate and resolve the report.

Will I be retaliated against for reporting my concern?

It is against Verisk’s Whistleblower Policy and the Verisk Code of Business Conduct and Ethics to retaliate against a person who submits a report in good faith.

What if I face retaliation?

Consistent with our Whistleblower Policy, Verisk will not tolerate threats or acts of retaliation against individuals who, in good faith, provide information in connection with reports of actual or suspected concerns. In the unlikely event that an individual faces retaliation, the individual should contact People Leadership & Culture or speak with a local Human Resources Business Partner. For those individuals who in engage in retaliation against an individual who reports violations in good faith, disciplinary action – in accordance with the Verisk Employee Covenants, Verisk Code of Conduct, and Business-Unit-specific employee handbook(s), applicable law and employment contracts – may be taken against them.

What should I do if I lose my report key or forget the password I created?

Because of the high level of security that is maintained for these reports, if you lose your report key or password, you will need to file a new report. Mention in the new report that it is related to a report you previously filed.

Why do I have to create a report key and password?

By using a Report Key, you are still able to maintain your anonymous status and continue to check on the status of your report or anonymously answer any follow up questions posted. Because reports can be made anonymously, you will not receive auto-generated notifications to your email account or through any other medium outside of this platform to communicate back the status of your report. We ask you to use this Report Key along with the password of your choice to return to EthicsPoint through the website or telephone hotline. The Report Key and password can be used after 10 business days. By returning in 10 business days, you will have the opportunity to review any Follow-up Questions or submit more information about this concern.
