The US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the Corruption of Foreign Public Officials Act of Canada and the Indian Prevention of Corruption Act all prohibit bribes given to Public Officials. Only the UK Bribery Act has a larger ambit, which prohibits public as well as commercial bribery. The U.S. FCPA presents significant liability, risks, and compliance challenges for U.S. firms pursuing business opportunities in India.
Alongside this, the anti-corruption framework in India is gaining strength and seeing an uptick in implementation.
Integrity Matters’ Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption training module talks about the many Indian and relevant overseas legislations, extensively focusing on daily practices to spot and avoid red flags when it comes to dealing with government officials, third parties, HR practices and much more. This training will help employees thoroughly understand the policies and legal requirements necessary for an ethical workplace and highlight the importance of their role in preventing bribery and corruption.
