Compliance into the Weeds is the only weekly podcast which takes a deep dive into a compliance related topic, literally going into the weeds to more fully explore a subject. In this episode, Matt Kelly and I take a very deep dive into the process surrounding the allegations made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by Christina Ford. We consider these allegations from the compliance perspective.

Some of the highlights from this podcast are:

  1. Why investigation protocols are mandatory before an event arises so you are not making things up on the fly.
  2. What is the evidentiary standard you employ? Are you consistent in your approach? If a candidate lies, what does that tell you about their propensity to engage in illegal conduct going forward?
  3. What is redemption? Should it be considered when allegations of long-ago misconduct arise? Should you be required to show contrition?

We unpack of all these points and consider strategies going forward.
