Workplace Investigations

The Compliance Office is a neutral party and fact finder whose major function is to receive, investigate and remedy complaints of employment discrimination and harassment. We encourage employees to access the Ethics and Compliance Hotline at (844-759-0034) or visit the website at to report a complaint. Employees may also schedule a private and confidential consultation with a Business Partner in our office who will assist with their concerns.

Ethics & Compliance Hotline

The Compliance Office monitors the Ethics and Compliance Hotline program which provides an additional mechanism for reporting potential violation of safety, security, policy and/or ethical behavior, while providing Jefferson County Commission employees the option to report anonymously. The system also allows completion of an online questionnaire or through a confidential telephone call to the hotline number (844-759-0034) with a third party. Employees have the option to self-identify or report anonymously.

When determining whether you should self-identify or remain anonymous, consider the nature of your complaint. For example, if a reporter became aware of a potential violation that impacted the safety of others, reporting anonymously would be appropriate. On the other hand, if a reporter was sexually harassed, self-identifying may be best.

We value your opinions and encourage you to use this system to report any issues, concerns, questions or suggestions you feel are appropriate to bring forward. If you have any questions about the Ethics and Compliance Hotline, please do not hesitate to contact the Compliance Office at 205-325-5535 or via email at
