Why Provide Anti-Corruption Training?

The U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and many other domestic and international laws outlaw bribery and other forms of corruption. In the past several years, companies around the world have paid hundreds of millions of dollars in fines for violating these laws. At the same time, many executives and business development professionals have spent years in prison for violating these complex laws.

In many cases, companies and their employees violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA and other anti-bribery laws without even being aware that their actions are illegal.  Organizations should place an emphasis on reducing corruption risks by establishing a complete anti-corruption program.  Compliance training should be at the core of an anti-corruption program for any organization.

Who Should Take FCPA, Anti-Corruption, and Anti-Bribery Training?

FCPA training should be provided to all executives, sales, and marketing professionals, finance and operations professionals, and anyone else who might become involved in or become aware of bribery and other forms of corruption.

While there are laws that prohibit bribery of anyone, organizations must be especially cautious when dealing with government officials.  Certain laws, such as the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the UK Bribery Act, prohibit bribery of foreign government officials anywhere in the world.  The Securities and Exchange Commission continues to prioritize enforcing the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, which prohibits U.S. companies from bribing foreign officials.  Online training courses are an effective way of minimizing corruption risks, avoiding FCPA violations, and ensuring FCPA compliance.  

Organizations should train not only their employees but also any agents or third parties that might knowingly or unknowingly violate bribery laws, like the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, in the course of their work.

Customization and Languages

Instead of providing generic FCPA training courses, employers can customize this online FCPA training by including:

  • Logo
  • An introductory audio or video message from their CEO or other senior official welcoming users to the course
  • Company-specific policies on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), UK Bribery Act, and other anti-corruption laws

At a modest cost, Clear Law can also modify the online training to include scenarios that directly relate to the actual issues your employees may face.  Using “green screen” type technology in the FCPA training, Clear Law is able to quickly and inexpensively change actors and backgrounds to create employer-specific scenarios.

 

Clear Law can provide this FCPA training in multiple languages as needed.
