Session Overview

The complexity of laws and jurisdictional issues affecting corporate social responsibility (CSR) is increasing. Lawyers must counsel their clients on a range of CSR topics: business and human rights, anti-corruption, ethical sourcing and  lending, privacy, and non-judicial grievance mechanisms. With the prevalence of cross-border class actions and extraterritorial jurisdiction, the importance of properly advising companies on the range of CSR issues can not be sufficiently stressed.

In this video Jennifer Egsgard and Stefan Hoffmann-Kuhnt discuss the Corruption of Foreign Public Officials Act, Canada’s role in upholding the law, legal specifics and definitions including Section 4, active investigations, the compliance management system, violations and more.
