Boards are expected to have proper systems in place to prevent and detect wrongdoing; however, even the best governance system cannot completely eliminate potential wrongdoing within a company. Where allegations of wrongdoing surface, common sense and market expectations dictate a swift and appropriate response notwithstanding the fact that the proper course of action may not be clear at the outset. This seminar will focus on key principles to guide boards in their decision-making process when allegations of wrongdoing arise so that an appropriate, measured response can be developed and implemented in a timely manner.
Topics will include:
- Determining who should carry out an investigation
- Issues relating to confidentiality, legal privilege and disclosure
- Deciding when to engage external advisors
- Deciding when to report to the regulators or other authorities
