Bribery Act 2010 – Is your Association or Not for Profit Organisation prepared?

The aim of the act is to consolidate existing legislation on bribery.  For the purposes of the Bribery Act, bribery is defined as `the giving or taking of a reward in return for acting dishonestly and/or in breach of the law’.

The four possible offences under the Act will be: bribing another person, being bribed, bribing a foreign public official and failure to prevent bribery.  While the Act outlines bribery as a criminal offence, it has a particular implication for employers as the Act proposes that if a corporate offence is committed then both an organisation and its directors can be liable for the act of bribery.
