Quarter Offered

Spring : T 6:30-8:00pm ; Karen Layng


Enforcing business ethics and compliance are critical to the day-to-day operations of any construction business. Failure to embed ethical behavior into the culture of the company and properly identify and manage any ethics violations will impact the sustainability of any construction firm. This course examines business ethics as they apply to specific construction professionals, civil and criminal risks to construction firms for failure to develop an ethical leadership culture, contractual ethics and audit concerns and proposes mitigation procedures and crisis management plans to lessen the impact of governmental ethics investigations.
