Question 1

Direction: Read the given passage carefully and answer the questions given below :

The experience of working on the law in the countries has shown that the best method to ensure compliance of the law is a combination of awareness and sensitization coupled with self-regulation as well as having robust statutory provisions to act as the deterrent factor. For this purpose, the industry body and the statutory have to work in tandem. In the US, the FTC works closely with the advertising fraternity in order to keep violations in check. The UK is the best example of solid co- ordination where the statutory authority for consumer protection i.e., CMA and the advertising industry body viz., ASA play a perfectly synchronized role for making advertisements complaint with CPRs along with CAP. Though CMA acts as on complaints and issues pertaining to the consumer industry as a whole, the ASA provides its support on complaints pertaining to advertisements. Instead of acting as a body restricting itself to compliance of the law, the CMA in conjunction with ASA also provides guidance and advisories to companies and advertisers. This mutual co- ordination is also found in Singapore with the government and ASAS working together on awareness as well as compliance. The CCPA ought to be constituted in a manner that works closely with the advertising industry and ASCI as is being done by its counterparts in other countries. Its role should be dynamic and industry sensitive. This will ensure that CCPA does not become yet another statutory body in the Indian regulatory web. Given the change in the scenario in India with respect to the law relating misleading advertisements especially those carrying celebrity endorsers, the ASCI should look to playing a bigger role in creating awareness in the advertising industry and aspiring to seek compliance of its Guidelines. It is a matter of great regret that lately brands and entities have been found to be involved in fraud on consumers. This includes several real estate companies. Such companies have engaged the who’s who of the celebrities to push their projects and products. This scenario has created a lot of buzz surrounding the topic of liability of celebrity endorsers engaged by such companies in order to woo consumers. Endorsers who charge astronomical amounts for advertising contracts have to stand up and take responsibility for their actions of associating themselves with companies who indulge in less than honourable deeds and practices. They can no longer be permitted to raise their hands and claim ignorance or indemnification. The need of the hour is for the newly enacted laws and its system to send the message that --- if you meddle with dirt, you will end up with hands dirty.

The word statutory means “of or related to statutes”- rules and regulations. Compliance means adherence. Thus, Statutory Compliance means adhering to rules and regulations. Statutory Compliance in HR refers to the legal framework that an organization should adhere to in dealing with its employees.

A statute is a law, a written law that is enacted by the state or federal legislature. A statute can do one of several things. Often, it forbids a certain acts (for example, killing endangered species) or directs a certain act (for example, paying taxes). But sometimes it can simply be a directive or set out government agencies or procedures (such as the Social Security Act).
