Firm Partner Rebecca Moll Freed and Senior Associate Avi D. Kelin will present a CLE webinar entitled “Managing Corporate Political Activity Compliance in the New Normal” via live stream by Lawline on October 15.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed everything from how businesses are operating to how political campaigns conduct fundraising. But one thing that has not changed is the importance of complying with applicable laws regarding political activity. This presentation will provide an overview of how businesses can effectively manage potential risks associated with political activity while implementing a political activity compliance policy in the new normal. This includes understanding contribution rules, use of corporate resources for political activity, pay-to-play laws, individual political activity, and government ethics rules. Even when political campaigns are held virtually, elections are conducted by mail, and individual political activity may occur over social media, campaign-finance rules and other aspects of political law – including the importance of political-activity risk management – have not.
Learning Objectives for this course are outlined below:
- Review the laws governing political activity for businesses
- Identify why corporate political activity compliance is important for all businesses, even for the ones that don’t think that they are politically active
- Examine the keys for developing and implementing an effective compliance policy
