Bribery occurs when anyone authorises, offers, solicits, gives, receives or accepts anything of value, or any financial or other advantage, in exchange for favourable treatment by a company, government authority, official or employee.
Bribes can include cash payments, gifts, favours, any item or service of value, or any other financial advantage.
Most countries enforce laws prohibiting bribery and corruption. Many of these laws apply even when the wrongful conduct is committed outside the country’s own borders and/or by citizens of other countries, such as the UK Bribery Act 2010 and the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act 1977.
Violations of these laws are often treated as criminal acts and can result in convictions of both corporations and individuals, including large fines and prison sentences.
To comply with bribery laws, we must:
avoid making or receiving any improper payments either directly to or from another commercial party, [client OR customer], [client’s OR customer’s] representative or a government employee or official
not make any such payments
