You work as the assistant to the CEO of an internationally active pharmaceutical company. In order to promote your products, you regularly invite medical doctors (MDs) to seminars and conferences that also help to exchange ideas and share insights gained from experience. In this context, it has been common practice that your company covers all the travelling expenses of the participants and their spouses and also pay a substantial fee if participants are willing to make a contribution in the discussion forums. As this has been a common practice within the pharmaceutical industry, your company has not considered this approach as ethically questionable so far.
However, recently, a new law was passed in one of the countries where you do business that prohibits the payment of a substantial fee merely for the agreement to participate in a discussion. Yet, it remains unclear exactly which sum could be considered substantial. At the same time, the parliament of the country where your head offices are located is preparing a new law making the payment of excessive compensation to participants of company-organised international conferences illegal. In this context, the CEO has asked you to come up with a plan of action, proposing, with an emphasis on sound corporate citizenship, an ethically viable and commercially sound approach to the new situation.
