The Role of Human Resources in FCPA Compliance-Part I

more+
less-

One sign of a mature Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) compliance and ethics program is the extent to which a company’s Human Resources (HR) Department is involved in implementing a solution. While many practitioners do not immediately consider HR as a key component of a FCPA compliance solution, it can be one of the lynch-pins in spreading a company’s commitment to compliance throughout the employee base. HR can also be used to ‘connect the dots’ in many divergent elements of a FCPA compliance and ethics program. My next couple of postings will discuss the role of HR in such a program. The first installment will discuss training, employee evaluation, succession planning and hotlines and investigations. In the next posting, we will discuss background screening, doing ‘more with less’ and finally, what to do when the government comes calling.
