Practical insights for compliance and ethics professionals and commentary on the intersection of compliance and culture.

Compliance in Arrested Development

Check out the below clips from the cult classic television show Arrested Development.  Given that much of the show is devoted to dealing with the fallout from the family’s business operating fraudulently for many years, it should be no real surprise that there are many themes of compliance and ethics that recur throughout the show.

  • Money laundering

  • Misleading disclosures to board of directors

  • Doing business in sanctioned countries or with politically-exposed persons

  • Defrauding investors

  • Ineffective training (on the topic of sexual harassment, with the training itself constituting an incidence of this misconduct)
