Why Document? Documentation Reason #3

Posted by Meredith Gooch on Thu, Jun 25, 2009

“I don’t have time to worry about compliance. Don’t we have lawyers for that?”

Your Legal and Human Resources departments shouldn’t be the only ones concerned about legislative and regulatory risks because these risks affect all areas and departments of your business, making compliance every employee’s responsibility. There are increasingly stringent legal and regulatory requirements being placed on companies of all sizes. Many of these requirements carry hefty penalties for non-compliance.

If you don’t have the internal resources, Terrell & Terrell can work with you to develop the types of documentation you need to achieve compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley 404, data privacy, and other general or industry-specific legal and regulatory requirements. We can help you with narrative policies and procedures, process maps, controls matrices, and any other business documentation your company may need.

Be proactive. Call Terrell & Terrell…before the auditors arrive.
