The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has long examined the strength of corporate ethics and compliance (E&C) programs as it makes determinations about prosecution and possible penalties.
- Organizations with strong E&C programs often receive more favorable treatment, including deferred prosecution and lower penalties.
- Organizations with weak E&C programs place themselves at great risk when things go wrong, including prison for those involved and, in some cases, even shutting down the company for good.
Following DOJ guidance can mean the difference between survival and disaster in the face of government prosecution.
