Our team of professionals regularly investigates sensitive issues raised by whistleblowers, helping you understand the facts and circumstances, risks, and corrective action needed to properly resolve a whistleblower complaint. We work closely with legal your counsel, human resources professionals, compliance leaders, and other stakeholders to create an appropriate work plan and path forward.
You can reduce costs through our expedited, focused action. We will assess the merit of allegations, develop targeted testing based on scope and duration of investigation, and develop recommendations tailored to your operations. We can also assist in developing policies and processes to build an effective whistleblower program.
Protecting whistleblowers is rapidly becoming a regulatory requirement worldwide. The European Union already requires certain companies to have a whistleblower system. The UK has similar requirements, and there is growing awareness of whistleblower protections needed in the U.S.
GRF has teamed up with Whistleblower Software, the industry leader, to provide online reporting capabilities that will protect the privacy of those reporting fraud and abuse.
GRF can set up a personalized company reporting webpage with custom branding options to tailor it to your specific needs.
Place the link on your website or intranet and make sure to notify your staff that this reporting option is available.
Employees or other whistleblowers use the link to report wrongdoing. All identifying metadata is removed and voicemail messages disguise the voice.
GRF Forensic Experts and/ or client management/legal counsel manages and monitors the platforms, investigate each case, and report back on progress.
The whistleblower can anonymously check in on the status of the incident report and communicate with GRF/management.
