Online Anti-Bribery Training and Anti-Corruption Training
Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption
With increasing globalization, firms are faced with new challenges, as well as new opportunities. Part of this new environment is compliance with laws that are anti-bribery and anti-corruption, such as the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the UK Bribery Act, and Canada’s Corruption of Foreign Public Officials Act.
While each of these laws is somewhat different in scope and reach, the corrupt activities they prohibit are much the same. “Bribery” involves improper inducement and occurs when something of value is offered or accepted in order to influence a transaction or encourage improper or illegal behaviour. “Corruption” involves dishonest or illegal behaviour achieved through unethical means, such as bribery. Corruption inflicts serious social, economic and political damage — for example, by hindering economic development and contributing to governmental instability. As international anti-corruption authorities everywhere usher in "a new era of enforcement," employees need practical guidance for recognizing and responding appropriately to corrupt activities.
