Exploring the background and implications of the DOJ’s sentencing of Chrysler (now FCA) over diesel emissions fraud.
Chrysler/FCA Diesel Emissions Fraud Scandal
What’s in this whitepaper by attorney and podcaster Tom Fox:
Corruption comes in all shapes, sizes and forms. And just because it doesn’t begin with an allegation that a firm has violated the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act or the UK Bribery Act, that doesn’t mean there aren’t compliance lessons to learn.
Chrysler (now FCA) was recently sentenced to fines totaling more than $300 million in criminal proceedings over its illegal scheme to cheat U.S. emissions tests of some diesel engines.
Fox explores the background of the case, including why the DOJ issued the fines it did and what compliance and ethics professionals can learn from this case.
