Reporting Possible Code of Conduct Violations

You do not have to be sure that you are right to raise concerns about potential violations of the Code, Jefferson’s policies, laws, or regulations. Jefferson will investigate all good faith reports of possible misconduct. 

Employees can ask questions or report issues to their immediate supervisor, higher-level department managers or leaders, human resources, the office of legal counsel or the compliance office.

Additionally, anyone can anonymously and confidentially report concerns by using Jefferson's third-party 24/7 alert line at 1-833-ONE-CODE (833-663-2633) or
