This online training course has been designed to use by any employee who could possibly be exposed to bribery in the workplace. It covers what is defined by bribery and what actions that may not seem like bribery legally count as a bribe.
The course helps the user understand parts of the Bribery Act 2010 that applies to them, understand what happens if they fail to prevent bribery, and know the common indicators of a bribe.
In this course you will learn:
- What is meant by the term ‘bribery’, including the distinction between bribes and gifts.
- The effects of bribery if allowed to occur.
- The details of the Bribery Act 2010 and your responsibilities for compliance.
