Bribery and corruption

Allegations of bribery and corruption are typically very complicated, sometimes including multiple people and events. Whilst it is hard to monitor everyone you employ at all times, it is important that you do all you can to ensure your business has the relevant procedures and policies in place to discourage any non-compliant conduct. If you or your business is facing allegations of bribery and corruption, call Lance Mason today for free legal advice.

What is bribery and corruption?

Under the Bribery Act 2010, you or your business can be charged with four criminal offences related to bribery and corruption:

  • Knowingly and intentionally bribing another person
  • Witnessing bribing and corruption and failing to notify the authorities
  • Requesting or accepting a bribe
  • Attempting to bribe a foreign public official

From a business point of view, you could be prosecuted for:

  • The acceptance of gifts or money to sign a contract
  • Being witness to an internal bribe and not notifying senior management or the authorities
  • Giving gifts to clients that may be deemed as inappropriate or excessive

In some cases, individuals receive regulatory scrutiny by mere association, so it is essential you fully comprehend what may be considered regulatory non-compliance.
