Incident Reporting

Ethical Advocate’s purpose is to provide you with the best information gathering system, and with the incident reporting system, our clients and over 4 million users have the most user friendly, rapid, and complete incident reporting system available.

System Features

Ethical Advocate does not offer a one-stop cookie cutter formula. EA works with you to custom design your incident reporting categories without limit to directly address your specific risk factors.

EA’s systems provide you the opportunity to receive incident reports from employees, vendors, suppliers and all other categories of stakeholders to whom you make the system available.

In order to maximize information gathering, Ethical Advocate’s system allows supporting file attachments when someone reports online.

Ethical Advocate’s systems provide your incident reviewers and anonymous informants the ability to communicate anonymously with each other without limit, whether they report online or use EA’s Call Center.

When incident reports are submitted, your incident reviewers receive e-mail notification immediately, indicating that a report has been submitted, thereby allowing you to easily determine when a report demands immediate attention.
