Course Description

Course Description

U.S. Dept of Justice Compliance Guidance states that “High-level [company] personnel…shall ensure that the organization has an effective compliance and ethics program.”

The Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs is the U.S. Department of Justice’s guidance to federal prosecutors on how to determine the size and severity of punishment a company should face in the event of a compliance failure. With their June 2020 update to the guidance, regulators have also sought to provide guidance and transparency to organizations by clearly communicating their expectations of what a well-designed and properly executed compliance program should look like.

Compliance officers can start by answering the three questions the DOJ instructs prosecutors to ask at the start of their evaluation: 1) Is the corporation’s compliance program well designed? 2) Is the program adequately resourced and empowered to function? 3) Does the program work in practice?

The DOJ will favor those who follow the Guidance and punish those who don’t.  

Your freedom, your career, and your company, therefore, depend on understanding and leveraging the DOJ Guidance for maximum benefit.

This online CPE Ethics webinar will discuss how you can leverage the DOJ guidance for maximum benefit.

The online CPE webinar has the following key topics:

  • What is DOJ guidance
  • How the DOJ guidance should be used
  • What the DOJ is looking for in a compliance program
