  7. In a recent interview experience for a compliance officer position the company CFO was asking me about compliance and when my reply was about maintaining local regulations he argued that labor law is not part of compliance. I was totally astonished to see that such a person from that position how he can have such type of thinking. I’m just sharing my experience on how these days company chief are often misled.
