EthicsPoint by NAVEX allows you to communicate your concerns both online and through a hotline. Both options allow you to remain anonymous if you so choose. UNLV has partnered with EthicsPoint to manage the reporting system for us. EthicsPoint has gone to great lengths to ensure that reports entered in the system are completely confidential. Please know that when you use the EthicsPoint reporting system, you can report misconduct that you observe or gain clarity on whether or not something is cause for concern.
UNLV is very interested in resolving complaints in order to create the best possible work environment at UNLV.
