Just because your company has policies, a code of ethics, a code of conduct, a values statement and a culture document doesn’t mean you are immune to ethical lapses, and the consequences. Companies with all the right documentation in place suffer ethics slipups every day, including fraud, sexual harassment, insider trading, conflicts of interest, bullying and other misconduct.
Lapses don’t even have to be outright misconduct to affect the workplace. Many are small incidents that go uncorrected, such as incivility, bogus sick days, gossiping, minor theft or questionable jokes. And whether they involve employees, managers or the C-suite, these small lapses, left unchecked, can build into bigger ones.
Join Janette Levey Frisch, “The EmpLAWyerologist”, as she examines ways to tackle the small ethics lapses in your company, get employees, managers and the C-suite to think and act ethically, and avoid a potential catastrophe.
The webinar will cover:
- How to stop mildly offensive behavior before it becomes a violation

- How to get top-down commitment to ethics
