Internal and Governmental Investigations

Internal and Governmental Investigations

600.00  Online

When wrongdoing or misconduct occurs or is suspected within an organization, the organization (or an external governmental or regulatory body) will typically undertake an investigation to determine underlying facts: who, what , where, why and how.  Compliance professionals within the organization are often involved in -- and may even lead -- the investigatory process and the resulting disciplinary and remedial consequences. This course will examine the dynamics of internal investigations, the roles that compliance professionals may play in them, best practices, conduct to be avoided, and traps for the unwary.  Actual examples and hypothetical situations will guide the discussions.
