With the arrival of the Information Age and the explosion of high technology, communication is getting faster but not necessarily better. Many employees believe that if they act with integrity and simply follow their bosses' or customers' instructions, their good intentions will keep their communications from becoming a legal "smoking gun." In reality, however, nothing could be further from the truth. Almost everything an employee says or does on behalf of his or her company can be use...
As the complexities of the business world multiply and commerce becomes increasingly global, the need to understand issues of antitrust law — commonly referred to as "competition law" in the European Union — becomes more important. A web of international rules poses significant dangers for both intentional and inadvertent competition-law violations. As importantly, businesses and their employees become afraid to be inventive, aggressive and competitive in completely legitimate ways. ...
Effective management is vital to a successful company. Too often, individuals who have excelled in a company due to a specific skills set are promoted to managerial positions before having adequate management training or any at all. As a consequence, many managers lack the interpersonal skills, sensitivity, legal awareness and professionalism necessary for effective management. The result can be disastrous: endless conflicts; low morale and productivity; wasted talent; high and costly tur...

Dramatic cultural and social changes in the mid-twentieth century altered Western society in a way that affected the workforce and the customer base companies serve. The emergence of a global economy and revolutionary advances in telecommunications later in the century made the world a much "smaller" place. In the new millennium, the corporate world finds itself in an environment in which people of a wide variety of races, cultures, religions, ages and lifestyles interact regularly on the...
According to the Government Accounting Office, healthcare fraud and abuse account for three to ten percent of all healthcare costs — well over $100 billion annually.

The healthcare industry is subject to many different laws that concern fraud — including the False Claims Act, the Stark Law, the Anti-Kickback Statute, HIPAA and the Prescription Drug Marketing Act. On top of...

The rules regarding what is fair and unfair competition affect virtually all of a company's business decisions — hiring, marketing, sales, customer-relations, and research and development, among others — and are important for employees to understand. Violations of these rules can be very damaging to a company generally and, in some cases, to individual employees. Course Summary The law of unfair competition is the product of many years of state and federal court decisions and, more r...
Business people deal with contracts in many different contexts — purchasing, sales, marketing, distribution, employment and others — almost every day. A contract serves, in effect, as the "private law" of the parties on whatever subjects it covers. This is a powerful tool, since the law gives parties tremendous flexibility in defining their contractual relationships. Whatever terms the parties agree to include (within broad legal limits) define their respective rights and obligations fo...

The corporate-responsibility scandals and business failures involving companies such as Enron, Adelphia and Global Crossing revealed widespread accounting, self-dealing and mismanagement issues. Seeking to instill greater accountability by senior management of public companies, Congress enacted the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in 2002. The prevailing view among legal commentators is that the Act is by far the most significant federal securities law passed since 1934. Sarbanes-Oxley addresses a w...
Buying and selling stocks is no longer the sole domain of wealthy investors and large institutions. In fact, investing in securities has become an important factor in the financial lives of millions of people across many income levels. Frequent news reports of overnight billionaires in the stock market can tempt people to try to cash in on inside information they learn at work before the news is known to the general public. But buying or selling stock based on a simple "tip" or tidbit of in...
It is certainly no secret that drug and alcohol abuse is one of our nation's most serious problems. This holds true in the workplace, as well. Almost 40% of industrial fatalities and 50% of work-related injuries are linked to drug and alcohol impairment. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, more than 70% of illegal drug-users are employed. That means an estimated 8.3 million workers are illegal drug users. Without a doubt, drug and alcohol abuse in the workplace has significant negative e...

Reinforcing ethical principles and educating company members about compliance with the law is an ongoing and important responsibility. A company is only as ethical and compliant as its directors, managers and employees.

Integrity and scruples not only keep us out of court and out of prison, but they are good for business. One stud...

With the increase in litigation — especially employment litigation — in the 1990s, the time from inception of a lawsuit to decision continued to grow, as did the costs (both actual and "lost opportunity" costs), giving new meaning to the phrase, "Justice delayed is justice denied." Companies began to re-examine their objectives and view their desired outcomes not so much from a legal standpoint, but more from a business perspective. ADR, with its efficiency, speed and cost-effectiveness,...
Rapid advances in "information technology" have led to growing concern for the privacy and security of personal information. This is especially true in the area of healthcare, where individuals share details of their health, personal lives and finances when they are at their most vulnerable.

Copyright law affects the workplace activities of many employees on a daily basis.

Every year in the U.S., communication gaps between nurses and doctors cause medical errors that lead to needless deaths of thousands of patients.

The SBAR Technique provides a framework for healthcare professionals to communicate with one another in emergency situations. Developed by the U....
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 Gu...
With all of the potentially positive uses of e-mail and the Internet come potential abuses as well. Of 1,200 companies surveyed recently about Internet usage, 54% reported that they had caught employees browsing Web sites that were unrelated to their work — some up to eight hours per day! Not only can unauthorized Internet usage take a huge toll on employee productivity, but it can divert network resources from "mission critical" company functions. Improper or indiscriminate use of e-mail...

Companies are required by law to maintain certain types of corporate records, ...

Have you ever seen a drug dealer pull out a credit-card machine to accept payment? Ever known someone to pay for a TV they bought off the back of a truck with a personal check? Probably not. Most criminals conduct their business in cash. This creates an obvious problem - cash is bulky, heavy and risky to carry around. (One million dollars in twenties weighs about one hundred pounds.) As a result, criminals need to find a way to "launder" their ill-gotten gains. "Money laundering" is the pro...
Relationships in any organization are an opportunity to develop yourself - and others - professionally and personally. This course provides information about the mentoring relationship, how it relates to professional success, and ideas for both mentors and mentees to enhance their experience in the workplace.
Dating back to the late 1800s, common law in the United States defined the employment relationship as "at will," meaning that employers were free to hire and fire at will. Employers could, for example, refuse to hire minorities, segregate the work force, assign unpleasant work to women, and deny such groups opportunities for advancement. That's all changed. Federal and state laws prohibit discrimination and harassment in the workplace on the basis of age, sex, race, religion, national orig...
The U.S. immigration laws are increasingly important as companies compete in the global marketplace. In a nutshell, it is against the law for a foreign national to enter the U.S. to work unless that individual has obtained a valid visa.

The federal government spends half a trillion dollars annually on medical care - one-quarter of its budget, and fraudulent claims may total $50 billion this year. One major source of fraud is the submission of false claims for government funds, such as Medicare and Medicaid. In 1986, Congress enacted amendments to a Civil War Era law called the False Claims Act (FCA), which penalizes those responsible for submitting false claims for government funds. These amendments were designed to streng...
The Organizational Sentencing Guidelines have had an undeniably huge impact on the way U.S. companies do business and train their employees to abide by the law. What were considered large fines for corporate misconduct in the pre-Guidelines 1970s — several hundred thousand dollars — are now being dwarfed by fines in the hundreds of millions. In addition to these increasing monetary penalties, there are potential criminal sanctions and civil liability that make corporate compliance one o...

Exporting - that is, the shipment or transmission of items or material outside of the U.S. - is heavily regulated by federal laws and regulations referred to collectively as "export controls."
