Specific Standard Disclosures: Labor Practices & Decent Work


Number of grievances about labor practices filed, addressed, and resolved through formal grievance mechanisms

We provide our employees with a number of different approaches to express concerns about their work environments.  As described in the Interpublic Code of Conduct, which covers all employees, IPG employees may report concerns to their managers, to local Human Resources offices, to corporate Human Resources, to IPG Legal staff, or to IPG’s Chief Risk Officer.  We also provide a telephone hotline, as required by U.S. law, which is called the "IPG Alertline."  This hotline is available by telephone or email 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  Where permitted by local law, reports to the Alertline may be made anonymously.  All reports are investigated, and our policy very clearly states that there will be no retaliation against anyone who makes a report in good faith.
