Abstract


Today’s workplace can be a minefield for professional accountants because of the many behavioral expectations and higher ethical standards. To help CPAs overcome current and new ethical dilemmas, codes of professional conduct promulgated by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and other major organizations are continuously enhanced. This underscores the importance of ethical conduct to ensure that public trust is protected and strengthened across various accounting roles and activities. Thus, accountants should be well-versed with updated ethical guidelines and principles and be able to apply them in everyday situations.

In this LIVE Webcast, ethics thought leaders Catherine R. Allen of Audit Conduct and Charles E. Jones of Moss & Barnett will provide best practices on how CPAs can effectively address ethical issues using codes of conduct as a guide. They will provide an in-depth discussion of the key considerations that accountants should take in the lens of recent developments concerning ethical standards.

Key topics include:


• Ethical Standards: Recent Developments in the U.S. and Abroad


• Addressing Thorny Ethical Challenges – Key Considerations


• CPAs in Public Practice Compared to CPAs in Business


• Ethics and COVID-19 – Lessons Learned


• Best Practices
