Human Resource Management and the Compliance Office

Richard P. Kusserow | April 2017

Both the Compliance Office and Human Resources Management (HRM) play critical roles in any organization’s compliance program, and every compliance officer encounters the blurring of the lines between the two functions frequently. By stepping back, one can see just how much overlapping exists.

Both get involved in potential violations requiring investigation, remediation, and possible disclosure to government enforcement agencies.
