Compliance into the Weeds is the only weekly podcast which takes a deep dive into a compliance related topic, literally going into the weeds to more fully explore a subject. Today we consider the question of who in an organization should oversee a hotline. Once that decision is made, who should manage the hotline. Some of the issues we consider are:

  • Why the Audit Committee on the Board should oversee the hotline.
  • It should be written into the Audit Committee’s Charter.
  • The hotline manager must have the independence to investigate any issues raised and they must have the competence to do so.
  • Why the Compliance Function should oversee management of the hotline.
