Talk To Your Supervisor First

The first step to addressing any concern or issue is to talk with your immediate supervisor. If talking with your supervisor is not a valid option, we encourage you to voice your concern to higher levels of authority as follows:

  • The head or chair of your department or division
  • The dean of your college or school
  • An appropriate member of the University administration

Contacting USC Integrity Line

If talking with your supervisor or other administrator is not an option in dealing with a workplace concern, the USC Integrity Line is an anonymous reporting system, administered by an independent third-party provider, Lighthouse Services, Inc., to report your concerns about questionable or unethical behavior.

To submit an Integrity Line Report:

The USC Integrity Line is available at any time of the day or night.
