Compliance Today: What It Means for Your Business
What does compliance mean to you? Join us for a 90-minute event featuring presenters in Barnes & Thornburg’s Fort Wayne, South Bend and Indianapolis locations, with a webinar option for those unable to attend in person. The program is designed to elevate the understanding of business executives and IMA members relative to compliance in today’s ever-changing business environment. Topics include how to tailor your company’s overarching compliance program, as well as how to integrate best practices regarding environmental, antitrust, director liability, intellectual property, and OSHA concerns. We will also take a look at enforcement trends by the U.S. Department of Justice, including whistleblower activity. Attendees will leave armed with insights to allow you to critically assess the state of your overall compliance programs.
