In June 2020, the United States Department of Justice published a revision to its guidelines for the Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs. Originally issued in April 2019, the updated Guidelines serve as a broad outline of an organization’s corporate compliance responsibilities.
While most of the revisions can be viewed as simple refinements, there are a few areas that warrant careful review by compliance professionals.
This white paper examines those changes and what they mean for compliance programs, including:
- What a program needs in order to be considered "adequately resourced" and "functioning effectively"
- How compliance policies and procedures should be made readily accessible to employees
- When and how a program should be updated to avoid being deemed a "paper" program by prosecutors
