Conflicts of Interest in the Workplace (Update Available)

This course is designed to raise employee awareness about conflicts of interest in the workplace – what constitutes a conflict of interest, how a conflict of interest can be avoided, and the appropriate action to take to ensure that a conflict of interest does not negatively impact the employer or the employee. An employee has a conflict of interest with his or her employer if the employee has any type of personal interest – financial or otherwise – that may impair the employee's judgment, causing the employee to consider his or her own self-interests over those of the employer, when performing job-related duties. A conflict of interest may also exist if the employee has any potential personal interest that may impair the employee's judgment, whether the employee realizes it or not, and even if the employee does not intend to have a conflict of interest. Conflicts of interest do not have to be acted upon to exist – they can be inherent in the relationships and interests an employee has. An employee may have a conflict of interest if the employee's personal interests create the appearance of an impropriety, regardless of whether the employee's judgment is actually impaired. For example, an employee with a conflict of interest may make an impartial decision that benefits the employer, rather than the employee’s own self-interest. However, because of the employee's conflict of interest, the decision might create the appearance of impropriety and the employee's intent or the decision might be called into question. Accordingly, it is best to proactively avoid, disclose and resolve conflicts of interest that may exist, rather than wait for them to be exposed. It is critical for employees, and managers, and executives in particular, in an organization to understand and be able to identify the relationships, interests, activities or actions that may create conflicts of interest for their organization, so they can ensure that effective, fair, and legal practices are followed when making or reviewing business decisions. In addition to enabling employees to recognize conflicts of interest they may have with their employer, this course will enable decision-makers in organizations to identify potential conflicts of interest and develop policies to help employees understand how to avoid, manage, and resolve conflicts of interest.

Integrity in the Workplace

Whistleblowing and ethics in the workplace have been in the headlines over the past few years because high-profile employees have blown the whistle on large public companies, such as Enron and WorldCom. However, integrity and ethics in the workplace are not just for large, high-profile companies. Almost every employer is subject to state or federal laws and regulations, and if the employer does not promote an ethical culture, individual employees with integrity may choose to blow the whistle on their employer's wrongdoing. Whistleblowing isn't just for accountants or lawyers who uncover widespread evidence of fraud. It's also for average, everyday employees who discover illegal or unethical behavior in the workplace, and decide to report it. This course discusses various aspects of corporate ethics, including fraud and abuse associated with financial, safety, health, environmental, and other workplace issues, and the regulatory agencies, laws, and regulations that govern them. The course also discusses how both employers and employees can improve integrity and promote an ethical workplace culture. For employees, it is important to understand how to blow the whistle objectively, and also to understand the general protections afforded to whistleblowers by law, which protect them from retaliation by their employers. For employers, this means implementing policies and practices that promote openness and transparency in the workplace, encouraging employees to report their concerns internally, and rewarding employees and managers for strict compliance with laws and regulations.

Preventing Fraud and Abuse (Update Available)

Private investors and business entities lose millions of dollars every year to fraudulent schemes, such as embezzlement, false insurance claims, investment scams, and double billing. Through stepped-up government regulations and tough anti-fraud laws, the business world has come a long way in cracking down on fraud. However, there is still great need for employees at all levels of business to be vigilant in their efforts to detect, report, and prevent fraud and abuse of all kinds. This course provides an introduction to the concepts surrounding fraud and abuse in the business setting.

Code of Conduct Awareness
