From the 2015 European Compliance & Ethics Institute:
Best practices in anti-corruption compliance have been extensively discussed and are now well established. But what has not been as thoroughly analysed is what to do when those best practices conflict with local laws.
For example, local employment laws can make it difficult to terminate or discipline employees who have been found to be paying bribes; and local criminal laws sometimes require immediate reporting of suspected acts of corruption to local authorities.
Companies attempting to comply with the FCPA, UKBA and other national anti-corruption laws may find that, by doing so, they are placing themselves at risk of local prosecution. This presentation from the 2015 European Compliance & Ethics Institute will analyse such conflicts in a variety of jurisdictions.
The 2017 European Compliance & Ethics Institute will be held 2-5 April in Prague, Czech Republic. Don’t miss the once-a-year opportunity to learn to effectively address challenges facing the European compliance and ethics community!
