Law 2738 - Corporate Compliance and Ethics

This course will introduce our students to the core concepts of corporate compliance and ethics.  We will review the role of compliance as well as the role of compliance officers in today’s corporations.  Their role is especially important in the current environment of heightened scrutiny by regulators, shareholders and the media.  We will spend several classes on the ‘nuts and bolts’ of compliance: setting the tone and getting the culture right, the code of conduct, helplines/hotlines and training.  They we will focus on specific areas of compliance such as privacy (including Gramm Leach Bliley, HIPAA, US Safe Harbor), human resources/employment issues (e.g. Discrimination, ADA, Harassment), import export and other trade issues as well as FCPA, AML and OFAC issues.  We will finish the course discussing whistleblowers, internal investigations and finally the role of the board of directors and audit committee in corporate compliance.  This will be a very practical “how to” class, with special focus on current evolving issues and how companies are dealing with them.
