The Essential Guide to "The Bribery Act 2010"
The Bribery Act 2010 (UK) is reckoned by many international commentators to be the strictest piece of legislation relating to bribery to be found anywhere in the world. The Act has made it possible to charge organisations if it is found they failed to prevent bribery, and to charge individuals who are found guilty of bribing or being bribed. Knowing exactly what is and isn’t accepted under the Act enables employees to act within the confines of the law.
