Organizations offering business hospitality, gifts and entertainment to build and enhance client relationships are now facing heightened scrutiny by local and international prosecutors and investigators for possible violations of anti-corruption laws. Ensuring compliance with these laws in order to avoid costly and damaging litigation is particularly challenging because of the vast number of laws an organization must follow. For multi-national companies looking to implement a compliant gifting program, building a standard and scalable system is challenging because of the language, cultural and legal diversity in global operations. For example, an organization operating internationally may need to comply with Chinese anti-corruption laws, the UK Bribery Act, the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, World Bank policies as well as the anti-corruption, gift and ethics laws of the different U.S. states and cities.
Join Margaret Cassidy, Owner and Founder of Cassidy Law PLLC and Timothy Schmutzler, Regional VP of GRC Solutions at MetricStream for a complimentary webcast on considerations for building a robust and structured Gift, Entertainment and Hospitality program; improving compliance with applicable laws; and combating bribery and other corrupt practices. The session will cover the complexity of anti-corruption laws and how you can use technology to identify payment risks, establish controls and adopt a multi-level approval system.
Key highlights include:
- Appreciate why governments have been passing more anti-corruption laws and why enforcement of anti-corruption laws has increased
- Understand the variety of laws and regulations that impact your gift, entertainment and hospitality (GEH) program
- Choosing between ‘Manual and In-house point solutions’ vs. ‘GRC based GEH systems’
