Whitepaper: Australian executives operating in multi-national organisations are at risk

Australian executives at risk

If you are an executive of an Australian company with operations in New Zealand or any other country this whitepaper applies to you. This whitepaper looks into the consequences of non-compliance for both the company and individuals involved, with a focus on New Zealand legislation as a prime example. Abstract Executives are increasingly being held personally liable for breaching New Zealand laws. It is not a sufficient safeguard to have a generic compliance program, one size fitting all offices across the globe, if you want to keep your organisation, and the employees who work for it, safe. At a minimum you must know what the dangers are. Governments everywhere seem to be raising the legal compliance stakes. Not only are individuals being targeted but the penalties that apply are being increased. The vast majority of executives, wherever they hail from, would say that they do not deliberately set out to break the law. The consequences of being caught for non-compliance in New Zealand can be catastrophic, not just for the organisation itself but also for any executives involved. The same applies in all other jurisdictions.
