Most medium- to large-sized companies institute codes of conduct as a key component of their compliance programs. Companies that are subject to U.S. jurisdiction and also operate internationally face a wide array of domestic and international statutes and regulations (as well as diverse cultural challenges) that require a far more robust program than domestic-only entities. It often is a challenge to make these policies understandable and relevant not only in the U.S. but also to all employees worldwide. The complexity of the laws, combined the far-flung locations of employees, makes full compliance virtually impossible, although an effective compliance program will limit the instances and the severity of violations and damages.
