Eric talks again about his favorite topic: code of conduct! This time we discuss three common code of conduct development myths. We talk about how longer does not equal better. How a global code that applies to everyone is better than a constellation of many codes. And finally Eric discusses how organizations should be realistic about the time and resources that go into a successful code of conduct project.
This time Eric talks about three aspects of Chapter 8 of the Sentencing Guidelines that you may not have noticed before.
This time Eric talks through conflicts of interest disclosures. Who do you want to capture, what do you need to tell them, should you use tools? Eric talks through all of this and also spends some time talking about the types of questions you will want to ask in the disclosure questionnaire.
Join Eric and the Clear Law Institute for another addition of his Code of Conduct Development webinar on April 4th 2019 at 1PM ET. You can register for the webinar here.
An important topic that we don’t talk enough about. Just as small businesses make up the vast majority of companies out there, and employ over 50% of the workforce in the USA, they also make up the majority of companies that get in the worst trouble for compliance failures — even though we rarely read about it. Eric talks a little about the pitfalls and issues with small organizations and compliance.
Also, check out our next webinar with our partners at Clear Law Institute on April 4th — you can find out more here.
This time we discuss benchmarking. First we discuss how you might go about determining the peer codes of conduct (or other written compliance standards) that you can use for benchmarking purposes. You probably have a good idea of some peer organizations that might fit, but Eric also discusses some other thoughts about what gets put into the mix. Then we discuss some different areas and criteria you might want to consider when evaluating your written standards and comparing them to other written standards. We talk about content and presentation as well as different, specific content you want to be paying attention to.
Eric also extends a special offer to Compliance Beat listeners this week: send Eric your code and he will review it and discuss it with you and your team on the house. Send inquiries to Eric directly here.
