Abstract \ Corporations have a responsibility to their governments, employees and customers to operate using ethical practices. Employees have an obligation to their employers to perform their duties competently and honestly. Today's pharmaceutical industry appears to have these two groups locked into conflict in the form of compliance interviews. Compliance interviews are delicate situations that can be helpful to employers in managing the workforce and treacherous to the employees. The nature of these proceedings and the effect of these interviews on the employees are explored in this project through social science research methods that will be used to highlight the employee experiences and set forth several hypotheses. The effect of the environment, the nature of the compliance interview, and targeted strategies for the employee are detailed in order to improve the communication in this particular setting.
