ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the organizational sentencing guidelines. A brief historical overview of guidelines for sentencing corporations as outlined by the United States Sentencing Commission is presented. Several steps toward developing an effective organizational compliance program are outlined, including tailoring standards and procedures to the company's particular business, effectively communicating compliance standards to all employees, and consistently enforcing such guidelines. The merits of an incentives-based approach to corporate compliance is also considered.
