Fraud takes place in every department – from HR to Accounts – and at every level from goods received/warehouse personnel to the Board. Executives from all departments must understand how to deal with fraud, particularly in light of the Bribery Act.
Described by many commentators as the most stringent anti-corruption law in the world, The Bribery Act came into force on 1 July 2011.
This course will examine in detail the impact The Bribery Act will have on both individuals and corporate entities, and will examine in detail the offences covered by the Act.
