Ryan Braun and Building Employee Trust in Your Compliance Program


Most people who have a modicum of interest in baseball now know that Ryan Braun was successful in the appeal of his 50 game suspension by Major League Baseball (MLB) for testing positive for performance enhancing drugs; i.e.: elevated levels of testosterone. The suspension had been levied based upon tests taken late last season, at the conclusion of which Braun was awarded the National League’s Most Valuable Player (MVP) award for the most sterling season, with a Batting Average of .332 with 33 home runs and 111 RBIs while leading the Brewers to the National League (NL) Central title. Although the entire process is required to be confidential under the MLB collective bargaining agreement with the players’ union, both the test results and notice of Braun’s appeal were leaked to the press by person or persons unknown.
