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 are 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.
This webinar is delivered in Plain English, understandable to you even if you are not a Business
Law Specialist. It brings you into an engaging, even sometimes humorous, conversation
designed to entertain as it teaches. And, it is specifically designed to be viewed as a stand-alone webinar, meaning that you do not have to view the other webinars in the series to get a lot out of it.
