Policies in Conflict: Undermining Corporate Self-Policing


By Joe Murphy, JD, CCEP, CCEP-I

The Rutgers University Law Review has published, Joseph E. Murphy, Policies in Conflict: Undermining Corporate Self-Policing, 69 Rutgers U.L. Rev. 42 (2017).  This article exposes the realities of how the legal system, instead of actively promoting effective compliance and ethics programs, has in many ways undercut such programs.  It also points out the weaknesses in programs today, due to these undercurrents and the failure of government to take a more consistent and proactive approach. It concludes with a practical solution to balance the competing interests and make clear that effective compliance and ethics programs serve an essential public interest and deserve government’s full support.

I would be interested in any comments on this subject, and thoughts on how to advance the understanding of and support for effective compliance and ethics programs.  I believe these programs, when done well, are vital to protecting the public from the harms that can come from organizational wrongdoing.

Cheers,  Joe
