Read the document to make sure it meets your business’ needs and that you’ve provided all of the necessary information about your anti bribery and corruption practices. Remember that, if you have any questions, you can Ask a lawyer for advice.
Make the Anti Bribery and Corruption Policy available to employees. You could, for example, include it in induction packs, send it out by email, put it on notice boards, hand it out in hard copy, or put it on an intranet site.
You should also make sure that staff understand all aspects of the Policy, especially if they are likely to be personally involved in situations that may expose them to the risk of engaging in bribery or corruption.
The Anti Bribery and Corruption Policy is not a contract and does not need to be signed or agreed to by your staff. You can ask staff members to sign an acknowledgement to show that they received it, but it’s not legally required.
A copy of your Anti Bribery and Corruption Policy will be stored automatically in your Rocket Lawyer account ‘Dashboard’. You should also download and securely store a copy of your Policy for your records.
Staff should also keep a copy of the Policy or have easy access to it, for example, via a staff intranet or handbook.
