Kim Cidvak is a consultant for one of the largest public accounting firms. He has been called in to review compliance documentation regarding human rights violations at Nogle Manufacturing Conglomerate’s contracted overseas manufacturing operations in China. The contracted manufacturing operation has workers using equipment that must be handled carefully by trained personnel and in the U.S. requires the expensive safety equipment to be worn at all times.
