WELCOME TO DEALERSHIP FRAUD HOTLINE

“Having an independent hotline available to employees can help alert the company to and reduce the possibility of inappropriate or illegal company actions. A whistle blower/ethics hotline provides a confidential way for employees to present issues to management and lessens the potential for claims of retaliation. The hotline should be available 24 hours a day, and by being available year round, it can increase the likelihood of early detection and response to discrimination or harassment claims, which can significantly limit liability.

Another advantage of the ethics hotline is that it allows for more information to be provided than other communication methods (e.g., anonymous note). Whistle blower/ethics hotlines can also serve as a method of reporting a concern in situations where an employee has brought an issue to a supervisor previously (e.g., in a face-to-face meeting) and feels that no steps are being taken to resolve the problem.”

TESTIMONIALS

Dealership Fraud Hotline provides an avenue for employees to do the right thing anonymously without fear of retaliation by either management or coworkers. It also contributes to the culture change in our organization. "The Big Brother" element of the program prevents many types of misconduct from happening in the first place.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHY DEALERSHIP FRAUD HOTLINE?

Average new car dealership employs 64 people and majority are good people that want to do the right thing. Unfortunately a small minority might cause tremendous damage to your organization. It is in your best interest to provide a tool for your employees to submit an anonymous report so you can get ahead of the problem and protect your assets and reputation.

WHO ARE DESIGNATED PERSONS TO RECEIVE REPORTS?

We require a minimum of two individuals. Dealer Principal should be one and he or she should designate the second trusted individual.

WHY SHOULD YOU REPORT YOUR INVESTIGATION'S FINDINGS BACK TO US?

So we can forward your investigation's findings to the employee who submitted the original report. If employees' reports go unanswered then employees will lose faith in the fraud hotline and stop submitting their concerns.

I OWN MULTIPLE DEALERSHIPS. DO I NEED A SEPARATE DEALERSHIP ID FOR EACH ROOFTOP?

Yes. Each dealership is assigned a unique Dealership ID to simplify reporting.

WHY AM I NOT GETTING ANY REPORTS?

Just because you haven't received a report yet doesn't mean you won't receive one in the future. Also, having a Dealership Fraud Hotline discourages unwanted behavior.

WHAT IS THE COST?

$365 per year per dealership.
