Statement of Purpose

Thank you for reaching out to disclose to the Office of Ethics & Compliance (OEC) an actual or potential conflict of interest you may have as a Veritas employee.
A conflict of interest is a situation where outside activities, financial interests, or receipt of gift and entertainment may lead to divided loyalties. Veritas employees are expected to act in Veritas’ best interests and to avoid conflicts of interests or the appearance of any conflicts of interests.
We encourage you to discuss the potential conflict with your manager and ask for her approval. After you submit the form, the OEC will get back to you within a couple of days, directing you to upload your manager’s approval for the activities and asking follow up questions, as needed.

If you would like to report a violation of the Code of Conduct or concern about another individual, follow this link to “Report a Concern”.
