Course Description:

Most businesses that perform contracts overseas are aware that they must comply with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). What they sometimes miss, however, are the many ways that their employees, subcontractors, suppliers, consultants, manufacturers and even legal counsel may be violating the FCPA right now.

Without even realizing it, your people could make small gifts or take other actions that fall under the FCPA’s ban on paying bribes to foreign governments. Plus, you may be missing red flags signaling that someone is pushing the envelope a little too far to try to obtain or retain business. That’s a huge risk, especially with US officials enforcing the FCPA so actively.

Now, let an FCPA expert show you how to protect your company—and management team—from FCPA mistakes that could trigger civil and criminal liabilities.
