The National Jurist - Spring 2017 - 9
Some companies combine compliance
with ethics and/or risk management.
The largest nonprofit employers of
compliance professionals are health care
As a result of HIPAA (the Health
Insurance Portability and Accountability
Act), its omnibus rule, the Affordable
Care Act, physician self-referral laws, etc.,
thousands of health care providers need
compliance experts. Most jobs are in hospitals and HMOs.
America's almost 5,000 colleges and
universities are overwhelmed with compliance mandates. Academic compliance
encompasses athletics, research, contracts
and grants, international and disabled
students, drug and alcohol abuse reporting, Title IX, student privacy and more.
Compliance services are provided by
many outside firms, including law firms,
their compliance subsidiaries and management consultants.
Compliance salaries have risen more
than 6 percent per year since 2006. The
average salary is $76,700. Starting salaries
range from approximately $45,000 to
$96,000. Chief compliance officers for
large companies typically earn between
$168,000 and $240,000.
Joining organizations of like-minded professionals is an important jobsearch strategy. Such organizations provide excellent networking opportunities.
Compliance organizations include: the
Association of Corporate Counsel; Health
Care Compliance Association; National
Society of Compliance Professionals; and
Society of Corporate Compliance and
Compliance is here to stay. Moreover,
two key compliance trends are not subject
to Trump administration tweaking: (1)
rules established by international organizations; and (2) rules of foreign governments applicable to multinational companies and U.S. exporters.
