Has any called the chairman’s line about a group leader who supports racism and targeting at work? This manager has many complaints on them filed by associates they manage and nothing is done about it. It k–ls me to watch this happen at work and watch people get away with it.

Awful choice to engage Chairman’s line or HR at Fidelity, it will only add to your stress and make your life much much worse.
When it comes to sh*t like this, take it deep and far: if no one at HR listens, write anonymously letters to clients and let them know of your experience.
Nothing freaks HR more than a rogue employee sending personal stuff to clients.
I can guarantee you your problem will get resolved immediately if you involve clients.
What is the chairmen’s line phone number. Your service s—s and as a 401k customer of Truist i would like to complain about the 2 hour hold times and lack of clear answers to my questions.
You need to re-read the thread. If you are looking to protect Fidelity from the actions of these people, then sure, call the CL (aka a senior person in HR). If you feel that you have been the subject of harrassment, etc, and want to determine your rights and protect your interests, get a good attorney and take it from there.
Trying to decide if it’s even worth the effort to contact the CL, but my manager and several of my coworkers must be into QAnon because they keep making overt comments about how great it is, saying negative things about the incoming administration, even in group emails, and without sarcasm, call each other “patriots.” It’s making everyone else on our team uncomfortable and my manager seems to enjoy pitting everyone against each other. I’m all for people having whatever political viewpoint, but it shouldn’t be a part of a professional meeting. It’s gotten a lot worse after what happened in D.C. Thoughts?
Thank you all so very very much for your responses to my OP. Gosh, I had no idea about the Chairman’s line, but that makes total sense. I raised it to HR solutions and finally the head of D and I and I was given a role in another department, in other words, be quiet and move on. Let’s not talk about this. It was incredibly frustrating because not one person listened. Thankfully I left on my own accord and to another competitor. To he**with them.
When it comes to serious, potentially illegal matters, HR is NEVER on your side fyi, They are there to protect the company's interest and reputation at all costs, and for good reason. IF you really want to know the ins and outs of HR and your options as an employee, please, please learn from an employment law attorney. Check out branigan robertson on youtube.
If what you are saying is true, I would file a report anonymously immediately. Try to get others involved too.
When you call the CL, Ned picks up on the other end. Usually you can hear the waves crashing on Nantucket Beach in the background.
I work for Fidelity. Few things... 1) the CL IS NOT anonymous. Once you access the form or call in to place the complaint your employee # will be monitored. 2) Your manager WILL be able see your complaint because HR is going to share it with him/her. 3) Both HR and your manager WILL try to find out who wrote the complaint.
Based on the above, the beat course of action is to write it anonymously and send it via letter to the CL address, including all the evidence.
If they retaliate, file a complaint immediately.
I’ve seen racist people removed before. The person documented everything (especially times of zoom calls where bad stuff was said because all of that can be pulled up). Good luck. There is no room for s-xism or racism at our company.
Gather evidence, names, dates, emails, witnesses, etc.)
Contact your own lawyer to review what you currently gathered.
Then approach Fido with allegations once your lawyer is happy with what you have gathered.
Don’t waste your time.
Like the poster earlier said, HR and CL are there to protect the firm - not you. From hiring to firing, HR serves one purpose - minimize risk to the firm. I too have complained to CL about unethical behavior, cooking of numbers etc - only to see the person get promoted twice. I guess it's seen as a welcome trait worthy of senior management. Be super careful about what you say and share. It will be used against you. Right after the legal time limit of retaliation is over. It happens more frequently than you can think of.
Chairman's Line sounds like it would be your ally. TRUST ME – it only exists to protect the firm, not you. It's not a special team, you will just speak to a senior person in HR.
I have experienced a situation first hand like you describe where it seems to be a clear cut case of someone doing something inappropriate and it resulted in absolutely no consequences to the offender after numerous people contacted the CL (in this case a branch manager having a s-xual relationship with a subordinate where EVERYBODY knew it was going on, and clearly against the rules). All they did was move the manager and subordinate to other branches / roles, meanwhile the morale of the team left behind was crushed.
It’s not anonymous (even though they say it is), document absolutely everything.
