Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Provisions and Penalties Training Outline


Every Country forbids bribery of its own government officials. The U.S. goes further and forbids bribery of foreign government officials. This is done through the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. The Act makes it illegal for various covered persons, including any U.S. person or company, or anyone acting on their behalf, to bribe a foreign official, official of public international organizations, foreign political parties of candidates for the purpose of obtaining or retaining business, and imposes accounting and recordkeeping requirements. A violation of the Act can result in severe penalties, both civil and criminal. Thus, it is important for you to be familiar with the guidelines set forth by the Act. As with all other HR Classroom trainings, any organization can quickly and easily bring their employees up to speed on these issues as well as fully document trainee activity. Your organization’s own policy can also be inserted directly into each training.
