This blog often deals with Compliance, both compliance with law and compliance with company policy. But another aspect of Compliance is the corporation’s compliance with its own contracts.
“Professor Wins College-Freedom Case in Wisconsin,” The Wall Street Journal, July 7, 2018 A3. Private university penalizes professor for posting a factual post online, despite academic freedom protections he had in his contract; professor wins back pay and reinstatement.
So, does your compliance program cover your organization’s compliance with its own contracts? Does your compliance training mention that point? Is contract compliance more or less important than ethics? Or is it part of ethics? How strong are your processes around contract compliance?
I just ask the questions.
