Compliance with Applicable Laws and Regulations
Persons are expected to comply with the laws and regulations bearing on their areas of responsibility. Many of the laws and regulations are unique to health care, research and higher education, and many, but not all, are embodied in UMDNJ policies. Failure to comply can have serious adverse consequences both for individuals and for UMDNJ in terms of reputation, finances and the health and safety of the community. UMDNJ business is to be conducted in conformance with legal requirements, including contractual commitments undertaken by individuals authorized to bind UMDNJ to such commitments.
The Office of Legal Management has the responsibility to work with departments to provide legal guidance and opinions.
