Anti-Bribery Legislation continues to be a hot topic: Join Resources Global for training on August 27th

corruptionWith new stories hitting the headlines every week, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and other Anti-Bribery legislation worldwide continues to be a hot topic for businesses operating internationally.  Just last week, Pfizer settled a case opened by the US Department of Justice for $60 million, admitting that sales representatives at their subsidiary, Wyeth, bribed hospital administrators (considered foreign officials as representatives of state-run medical facilities) in several European and Asian countries.  In this case, Pfizer reported the misconduct to the SEC and DOJ, according to company representatives, as soon as they were made aware of the situation.
