Compliance, Corporate Governance, and COVID-19
Professor Weldon will address the following questions: What is the role of the corporation in society and how does that change during a crisis? What responsibilities do companies have to their employees and to the society at large? Will and should companies continue the trend toward responsible capitalism during the current financial crisis? How does the push toward racial justice help or complicate corporate recovery during the pandemic? This essay will examine the ethical and fiduciary duties of lawyers, compliance officers, and board members during these unprecedented times.
