In this final section, we're looking at the fine line between what might be considered to be a gift and what might be considered to be bribe.

About this course

Bribery is something that happens more often than you may think! In the UK, up to 1 in 4 organisations come under pressure to accept bribes or make illegal payments every year; or lose business to competitors as a result of bribes.

This Anti-Bribery Course aims to raise awareness. It explains the four offences that can be committed under The Bribery Act. And it looks at the fine line between gifts and bribes – when is it acceptable to give a gift or hospitality? And when might they be seen as a bribe? And what to consider for an anti-bribery policy.

It also explains what you should look out for - the signs that suggest that bribery might be taking place. It looks at what you should do if you’ve been given, offered or promised a gift or hospitality and think it might be a bribe, or if you suspect someone else is involved in bribery.

The anti-corruption training course uses a clear, easy-to-understand style, supported by excellent graphics and animation. Scenario-style questions are used throughout the programme as examples to test understanding.

This online Anti-Bribery Training also works well alongside our Anti-Money Laundering and Data Protection Training titles.

Compliance

It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.

The Bribery Act 2010 is a very powerful legislation that applies to England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. The law under this legislation states that there are 4 main offences relating to bribery and if you are found guilty of committing any of these offences, you could risk imprisonment, unlimited fines and blacklisting.

The four offences that can be committed under The Bribery Act are:

Under Section 1 - Bribing another person

Under Section 2 - Being bribed

Under Section 6 - Bribery of foreign public officials

And under Section 7 - Failure to prevent bribery. 

An example real-world bribery

One of the biggest bribery cases in recent years is the million-pound bribery and corruption at Coca-Cola Enterprises UK Ltd. which saw 3 companies being fined WABGS Limited received a fine of £500,000, Tritec Systems Limited of £70,000 and Electron Systems Limited of £70,000.
