The dramatic increase of international business since the 1980s has been a highly complex and rather opaque process, despite the rhetoric both of globalization and the triumphant advance of capitalism. Enormous ethical challenges have come to the forefront, which need thoughtful and courageous practical initiatives to prevent business losses and non-compliance with federal and international anti-corruption laws.
The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977 (FCPA), was enacted for the purpose of making it unlawful for certain classes of persons (and professionals) and business entities to make payments to foreign government officials to assist in obtaining or retaining business.
This 2-day course addresses, in detail, the roles and responsibilities of multinational corporations’ obligation to comply with this Act. FCPA violations can be devastating, and with several large companies receiving fines in upwards of $1 billion in 2010, it’s important for companies conducting business internationally to understand and comply with the FCPA. The actions of your employees and agents can greatly impact whether or not your company is in FCPA compliance. All employees, whether staff associates or officers, who interact with foreign governments and businesses, must clearly understand the laws and how to follow them. We offer practical training on how to work successfully with foreign businesses and governments without violating US laws.
Each student will receive a copy of The U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practice Act and the U.K. Bribery Act Pocketbook.
You Will Learn To
- Explain the essentials of FCPA
- Create policies and procedures that address not only the FCPA, but also major non-U.S. anti-corruption legislations, such as the U.K. Bribery Act;
- Explain how to apply the FCPA and other anti-corruption legislation dilemmas and how to avoid costly violations
- Analyze business scenarios, transactions and partnership/alliances to prevent FCPA violations;
- Describe how to work with foreign government officials without violating FCPA
- Describe how to design effective protocols to monitor FCPA/anti-corruption compliance.
