Despite the economic conditions there is no respite. Directors are being targeted by the Office of Fair Trading for breaches of competition law about which they may have known nothing about. Cross-directorships can spread the risk around. And the government plans to make it easier to prosecute so that more executives end up like David, Peter and Bryan.
Who? They were in the marine hose business; they are not at their desks today as they are in jail. Also, stripped of over £1m in assets, they are disqualified from being directors for up to seven years. Their companies have had to pay over €130m in fines for serious competition law infringements.
The seminars based in Edinburgh, Glasgow and London will focus on companies who have to deal daily with compliance risks of various sorts - from stock exchange rules to health & safety, among others.
The Aberdeen seminar will focus on companies operating in the oil and gas sector who have to deal daily with compliance risks.
This seminar will explain what can cause a company to infringe and its directors, managers and other executives to lose more than just sleep – possibly their livelihood or freedom. It should be clear why competition compliance is critical and how compliance with the rules can be achieved.
