CLS Compliance Program and Reporting

CLS Compliance Program

The key objective of the CLS Compliance Program is to develop and implement a corporate compliance program on an ongoing basis to enable CLS to operate it’s business in compliance with federal, state and local laws and regulations and avoid wrongdoing, whether by mistake, through inadvertence, or intentional.

CLS employees and independent contractors have an obligation to become familiar with the CLS Compliance Program and to certify that they have read and understand the CLS Code of Conduct and the CLS Compliance Program. Any such employee or contractor who does not understand any provision of the CLS Code of Conduct or the CLS Compliance Program shall seek clarification from the CLS compliance Officer about such provision.

CLS Compliance Reporting

CLS Employees, patients and contractors should report any activity that is believed to be inconsistent with CLS’s policies, governing laws or the tenants of ethic to CLS’s Compliance Officer. The reporter can choose to be completely anonymous or provide his or her name. Either way the report will be handled with full confidentiality. Please complete the CLS Compliance Incident Report Form to submit your report.
