Human resources and legal departments increasingly face reviews or audits by internal compliance or internal audit departments, which seek to assure that policies and programs are consistent with the myriad laws with which the organization must comply, including employment, whistleblower, and anti-bribery and corruption.

If you are internal counsel or a human resources executive, your compliance department may want to review not only policies, but also backup data. For example, in the case of an internal anti-discrimination and harassment policy, or a public and employee-facing whistleblower policy, your colleagues may ask to review any logs of complaints and investigation files, which may contain the names of whistleblowers, allegations of unethical or illegal conduct, and legal conclusions.
