If you’re a publicly traded company, corporate ethics training is a requirement of employment thanks to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) of 2002, and this template will help you walk your front-line managers through the law’s key tenets. The presentation addresses the origin of SOX and the corporate ethics statement (AKA “code of conduct”), the importance disclosing potential conflicts of interest, Equal Employment Opportunity and workplace discrimination/harassment, and the policy of non-retaliation. Slides are also dedicated to Health, Safety and the Environment, the Use of Company Time, Property, and Supplies, how to report violations, and how investigations and disciplinary actions are generally managed.
