Read Frequently Asked Questions

This training program will detail what a compliance program is and what it covers. It will discuss the DOJ’s (Department of Justice) compliance investigations over the last year. The course will also illustrate how compliance programs are successfully extended to external business partners and how a code of conduct should be written into a compliance program.

Why Should You Attend:

The Department of Justice is targeting small to medium-sized businesses covering a wide range of compliance issues and increasing their scrutiny in 2015. No small business is too small. In 2014 alone, the DOJ announced a record $5.69 billion in settlements and judgments stemming from investigations under the False Claims Act (FCA) alone. They promise to continue and widen the scope of their efforts.

If you are an owner, you cannot make any more excuses that you didn’t know what employees or distributors were doing on your behalf. Neither can you assume no one would question that your ski house and beach house or multi-week time shares were being used by your customers more than you. This is a full-court press by the major world justice departments, including ours, to root out corrupt business practices at businesses of every size. If you are doing business with any company headquartered in the UK, the scrutiny will be even greater.

Even with a written compliance plan, without showing how it’s implemented, how often, and proving that it is ongoing is grounds for a significant fine, at the least.

This webinar, in 90 minutes, will enumerate to attendees what they need to know, what they have to do, and what is considered basic. The fact is, if you do not have a compliance program in place that lives and breathes along with you, there are not many places you can run and hide in today’s networked world.
