What is an Anti-corruption Policy?
An Anti-corruption Policy informs staff and board members of their obligations to prevent corruption in the workplace.
An Anti-corruption Policy sets out the basic standard of conduct expected of all staff and board members, and an organisation’s stance on acceptance of advantage and handling of conflict of interest when dealing with the business.
This Anti-corruption Policy should be issued to all staff members, directors, and members of any management board and make sure they understand and acknowledge the requirements of the policy.
