Corporate guidelines and ethical conduct should be viewed as an integral part of the company’s way of doing business. EC Legal-Rubio Villegas advises and assists clients regarding the implementation and/or review of programs aimed to comply with, among others, anticorruption laws and regulations. An effective compliance program is one that ultimately yields intended results: education, detection, and deterrence.
Our Services Include:
- Review with upper management and/or compliance officer corporate policies and guidelines.
- Assist in the drafting or revision of written code of conduct. A corporate code of conduct generally consists of a clearly written set of legal and ethical guidelines for employees to follow. A comprehensive and clearly articulated code of conduct -as well as clear policies and procedures relative to seeking guidance and making disclosures- may reduce the likelihood of actionable misconduct by employees.
- Organizational Structure. A compliance program may be run by one single officer or a team. Those responsible for running the program should have adequate resources to operate the program effectively.
