What is Non Compliance?

In this world it is impossible to find people who can comply with everything that others urge him to do. At some stage of life he/she will show some kind of resistance to obey in order to maintain his/her self esteem. This is what we call non compliance. Non compliance can be defined as the act not of responding favorably to the request made by others explicitly or implicitly. The request may direct the act of demanding donations or it may be an advertising activity where the request promotes the product rather than directly urging the consumer to buy the product.

In both the ultimate aim is to urge him/her to act in a desired way. Life will be uninteresting if you bluntly say yes to everything. One should learn the art of non compliance and should implement it when the situation demands. Nevertheless the art of non compliance will lose its shine and chic if it is not used in the right way. It has to be wielded only for a worthy cause otherwise it will open up a can of worms.
Non compliance has multiple meanings and it refers to different things which vary from one field to field. In corporate world, we can define non compliance as an opposite of regulatory compliance which describes the goal that every firm or public agency aspires to in their efforts to ensure that its employees are aware of and comply with relevant laws and regulations. It is pivotal for any firm or industry that the personnel working under its concern should obey the rules and regulations defined by that industry.

It is imperative for the smooth running of the company.
Thanks to many corporate scandals and breakdowns many laws have been enacted to bring back the publicís confidence in the nationís markets. One such act which came into effect was Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. The US had to go for this kind of Act after the famous Enron scandal. These acts cover issues such as auditor independence, corporate governance and internal assessment and enhanced financial disclosure. These kinds of laws forced the corporate world to comply with certain laws and regulations ensuring the security to publicís money.
As a precautionary action Canada also enacted certain laws to prevent act of non compliance. The Canadian Payroll Association (CPA) is an organization that manages the employeesí payroll interests and plays an authoritative role being a source of payroll knowledge of Canada.

This organization offers two certifications. Payroll Compliance practitioner (PCP), Certified Payroll Manager (CPM) are the two certifications. The holders of these certifications should adhere to a Professional Code of Conduct, should maintain professional membership with CPA and should participate in continuing professional education (CPE). National Payroll Week is the largest public relations initiative of (CPA). It recognizes the achievements of payroll community, payroll professional and Canadian Payroll Association (CPA) by creating awareness of the size and scope of payroll and its impact on the business, government and employees across Canada. Hence we can say that Canada has profound understanding about non compliance and has acted accordingly.
