Gifts & Hospitality Course

Gifts and hospitality are an important part of business, and companies worldwide employ this. Corporate gift-giving is indeed legal when used appropriately.

However, gifts and hospitality can cause conflicts of interest and be used as bribes in extreme cases. To avoid inadvertent violations, it's important to understand what constitutes an inappropriate gift.

Our Gifts and Hospitality Course explains the risks associated with gifts and hospitality and outlines what is acceptable with respect to corporate gift giving.
