Workplace Application: This session will help you develop protocols and training plans, and better engage your counsel and compliance officers on compliance trends and FCPA issues.

With increased tension surrounding global migration, governments are expanding oversight and enacting legislation addressing migration and labor issues. Whether responding to an audit or investigation, requesting that the government expedite the entry of key employees into a country, or seeking to influence legislation or regulations, the current environment creates opportunities for a company to run afoul of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and expose itself to adverse media or increased oversight by government officials. You will hear about the role a compliance officer must play within a company and how best to minimize risk while facilitating the growth of your business. You will walk away with a framework for the FCPA and export control obligations and will learn what steps you should take to avoid problems and what steps to take should problems arise. You will also leave with a better understanding of what actions you are allowed to take when interacting with government officials.
