Bribery Prevention Course

With bribery laws tightening up, there is a greater need than ever to follow compliance procedures in relation to gifts, hospitality, expenses, donations, recruitment, client take-on and partnerships.

Any substantial gift or hospitality can be taken as a bribe. An innocuous favour that you may think nothing of could be perceived as a bribe, and even a charitable donation can lead to accusations of bribery.

The law defines a bribe as any inducement, financial or otherwise, offered to someone to perform their function or activity improperly, and this makes bribery a serious crime.

Our Bribery Prevention Course will help your employees to understand what bribery is, the relevant anti-bribery laws and your systems and procedures for bribery prevention.

Audience: All staff  |  Duration: 40 minutes  |  Format: E-learning module
