THE BRIBERY ACT…..IS IT WORTH RUNNING THE RISK?
The Bribery Act gives authorities the scope to investigate businesses, senior staff and board members and hold them liable for the actions of employees or associated persons who paid or offered bribes. Any breach of the Bribery Act, will have serious reputational and legal consequences for UK businesses and their staff
The only defence for businesses is for them to prove that they had “adequate procedures” in place. ELAS are specialists in providing employment law advice to businesses of all sizes.
