Legal Affairs and Compliance
With an ever-changing legal landscape, RILA's Legal Affairs and Compliance offerings are committed to providing members a forum to network, share best practices and take action on the most pressing legal issues of the day. RILA's councils, committees and working groups are positioned to lead the retail industry, with an eye on both state and federal regulations.
Why Legal Affairs and Compliance Matters to Retail
From environmental compliance and product safety to employment law and privacy, the legal departments of leading retailers face daily challenges that impact virtually every facet of retail operations.
RILA's product safety vision is to focus on federal regulations and product safety issues impacting the retail sector, working with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Customs & Border Protection, and other entities to address issues impacting leading retailers.
RILA’s Compliance Council serves as a voice and a forum for retail industry compliance officers to meet and exchange ideas about corporate compliance issues in a retail environment. The world of retail presents unique challenges for our membership and the Compliance Council seeks to help our members meet these challenges.
The Retail Compliance Center is a one-stop shop for leading retailers and stakeholders in the industry to access solutions and information for maintaining compliance with state and federal environmental regulations. The RCC provides a repository of useful retail-specific information, tools and solutions.
Directed by the chief legal officers of the country's leading retail companies, the Retail Litigation Center (RLC) is the only organization dedicated to advocating for the industry's top priorities in the federal and state judiciary. The RLC also works with leading law firms and retail corporate counsel to develop forward-thinking strategies to combat meritless mass action litigation. Founded by the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) in 2010 as an independent organization, the RLC is a 501(c)(6) membership association open to all retailers and select law firms.
