Show Notes for Everything Compliance-Episode 14
Topics from Matt:
- Trump Administration & FCPA enforcement— we have two declinations now; maybe a compare-and-contrast, and speculation on what a tough Trump Admin enforcement WOULD look like;
- EU’s GDPR— Do EU regulators really know what they want to do with enforcement of this law; although if they follow the lead of the anti-competition people whacking Google, it could be a big deal;
- Hui Chen’s departure from Justice Department; both her public rebuke of Trump, and the substance of how she believes her guidance has been mis-interpreted; and
- Ethical leadership and the lack thereof; the menace of abusing perks and privilege, connecting my posts about Uber’s leaders and Chris Christie vacationing on a closed beach.
Topics from Jay:
- How do the Campaign Finance Laws mirror/or differ from the FCPA?
- Will the Russian Collusion Investigation reveal the ultimate FCPA violation?
- Regarding Walter Shaub’s departure from Office of Governmental Ethics (OGE), does it matter? What is OGE supposed to do and why did it work for the past 40+ years, but fell on deaf ears with the Trump administration?
- Dovetailing with Matt’s question about a slow H1 for FCPA enforcement and in light of the just released Gibson Dunn FCPA Mid-Year Report, does the current climate (and lack of vigorous enforcement) provide a perfect storm for companies to look the other way if they fall off the E&C wagon, or do we think that companies are still being vigilant in spite of a perception of decreased enforcement?
Rants are at the end of this week’s episode.
