This process has been quite effective and we continue to recommend that employees attempt to resolve matters through established reporting channels whenever possible.
However, in an effort to provide employees with an additional means of reporting fiscal improprieties, Colgate has implemented a fiscal compliance hotline.
In order to protect the identity of employees reporting a concern while ensuring that the university appropriately investigates and resolves any identified issues, Colgate has contracted with an independent third-party, Compliance Concepts Inc. Colgate’s hotline allows callers to confidentially report concerns regarding inappropriate financial activity or behavior.
All calls submitted through the hotline will be given careful attention with the objective of responding to and correcting the reported situation.
The hotline is not a substitute for, and does not supersede, any existing university protocols for reporting concerns regarding discrimination, harassment, or inappropriate employee workplace conduct. It should not to be used to report health, fire and safety, or personnel concerns; student behavioral issues; or matters related to academic dishonesty.
