The Bribery Act 2010 applies to all staff and employees. Under the act, it is illegal to accept a bribe, bribe another person, or enable bribery to take place. Failure to implement adequate procedures to prevent bribes being paid or received on an organisation’s behalf may lead to disciplinary action, unlimited fines, or even a custodial penalty. It is the responsibility of all staff to prevent, detect, and report any form of bribery and corruption in the workplace.
