Bribery Act 2010 Briefing

Organisations in the UK face a new exposure to criminal liability for failing to prevent bribery. This can include liability for the unauthorised actions of their employees, subsideries and agents. 
 
It is University policy to comply with all applicable anti-bribery laws. Bribery or any form of curruption by a member of staff of the University may be considered gross misconduct and the member of staff may face dismissal.it's therefore important that we understand the basics of the Act to avoid unnecessary difficulties. 
 
"Combating the risks of bribery is about common sense and not about burdensome control." Secretary of State.
