For organizations with operations in the U.S. and the U.K., this course emphasizes that anti-bribery laws extend to bribery of private entities — not just public officials — and apply to not only offering, but also receiving a bribe. This course offers an overview of the anti-corruption landscape and explores the complexities associated with terms such as “financial or other advantage” and “improper performance.” It highlights the due diligence required when engaging third parties. It also describes the FCPA’s books and records requirement and the need for accurate, complete and transparent recordkeeping.
