Almost every week there's a front-page story about a company or a company's employee, or an elected or non-elected official, engaging in an activity that presents a conflict of interest. Without a doubt, the surge in conglomerates and joint ventures has increased the potential for conflicts of interest to arise.

Conflicts of interest can create a lot of bad publicity, damage a company.

Course Summary

This Course sets forth and explains a model conflicts-of-interest policy that is a synthesis of more than a dozen such policies in use by major companies today. A company that already has a policy in place can use this Course to communicate that policy to its employees online — clearly an easy and effective way to communicate the message — and ensure the employees' familiarity with its policy quickly and cost-effectively. Likewise, for a company that has not yet assembled or implemented a policy on conflicts of interest, the Course provides a turn-key solution that can be put in place quickly.

The topics covered in the Course include
  • Overview of conflicts of interest
  • Relationships with customers and suppliers
  • Duty of loyalty
  • Outside activities
  • Financial interests
  • Family and personal relationships
