Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 09, 2017
This webinar series covers corporate and regulatory compliance as it relates to procurement and government contracting, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, data privacy and social media. The INSIDE COUNSEL INSIDER: CORPORATE & REGULATORY COMPLIANCE 2.0 2017 Financial Poise webinar series examines these topics from a company’s perspective, delving into compliance issues that pertain to specific company practices across industries and borders and impact companies of all sizes and types.
The second episode of the Inside Counsel Insider: Corporate & Regulatory Compliance 2.0- 2017 webinar series is Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Compliance, airing on October 16th at 2pm CST (Register Here), and features host Rafael Zahralddin-Aravena of Elliott Greenleaf. He is joined by Jonathan Stemerman of Elliott Greenleaf, Michael Skopets of Miller & Chevalier Chartered, and in-house counsel Jonathan Brand with Transworld Systems Inc. to discuss FCPA compliance.
The Federal Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) prohibits a U.S. company or person from bribing foreign government officials to obtain a business advantage. Along with this seemingly simple restriction comes accounting and record keeping requirements with which companies must comply. The FCPA requires the implementation of a compliance program which addresses FCPA concerns and establishes an FCPA corporate policy. This webinar covers the basics of the FCPA, including an introduction to the regulators, both the SEC and DOJ, and recent communications to the public regarding the FCPA from these regulatory bodies. The standards for a compliance program review is analyzed, including what makes a program current and effective as well as how often the program requires review. The role of a compliance coordinator is discussed, as is record keeping, training, and retaliation. Finally, meals and entertainment, gifts, travel, charitable contributions, and hiring are all discussed with reference to recent government actions and legal decisions.
