    Dangerous Documents: Avoiding Landmines in Records and Emails

    Thursday, August 25, 2016, 11:30am - 01:30pm

    Program Description:

    Abbott Laboratories, Boston Scientific, and Synthes were criminally indicted and paid multi-million dollar settlements. They learned that a phrase such as, "This will negatively impact the bottom line…" in a private email from an employee can be used to undermine the employee’s credibility, cost the organization money, and have a negative effect on the organization’s reputation. Employees need to understand what they should or should not write in their emails and other documents.

    In this session by Nancy Singer (former prosecutor), you’ll analyze improperly written documents and revise them, to reflect the reader’s true intent. You’ll leave with practical information that you will be able to use immediately.


    Learning  Objective(s):

    1. Explain an employee’s obligation for working for an organization.

    2. Explain that regulatory bodies will look at documents to determine regulatory compliance, and therefore, all provisions of each standard operating procedure should be followed.

    3. Write factual statements rather than opinions when communicating about company problems
