It is widely agreed that every company needs to have a policy statement on legal and ethical conduct. The Organizational Sentencing Guidelines require that a company 'must have taken steps to communicate effectively its standards and procedures to all employees and other agents, e.g., by requiring participation in training Courses or by disseminating publications that explain in a practical manner what is required.' Thus, if a company hopes to qualify for more lenient treatment under the Guidelines in the event of an employee or corporate misconduct, having, disseminating, and enforcing a Code of Conduct is essential.
This Code of Conduct online training course provides a model Code of Conduct that explains the most important parts of the Code. A company that already has a Code in place can customize and use this course to communicate that policy to its employees and for a company that has not yet implemented a Code, this course provides a turn-key solution that can be put in place quickly.
