Most countries around the world have competition laws; the European Union is no different. And when it comes to violating those competition laws, the stakes can be high, putting both employees – and the organisations they work for – at risk.
EU Competition Law (Basic) introduces the key concepts behind the main EU competition laws. The course focuses on the unfair practices that can prevent, reduce or eliminate competition. Coverage includes dealing with competitors, navigating high-risk situations and best practices for avoiding anti-competitive behaviours. Throughout the course, employees learn not only to identify activity that could violate the law, but also to report it.
Competition laws are critical to a free and open market. Understanding them can help to ensure employees do their part to maintain fair, healthy competition – and comply with the law. Advanced version also available.
