How Does Bribery Impact My Business?

On Behalf of | Oct 9, 2018 | Business Law

Almost every company builds a relationship of trust among its partners and offers training to new employees. It is mandatory that employers teach and reinforce ethics in the workplace.

Ethics are important not only among employees and business partners but also in a relationship between employee and customer. Ethics are principles laid out based on respect and trust, the same respect each person deserves as an individual.

The violation of respect is a cause of conflict. Conflict can come in many forms but one particularly detrimental is a lawsuit due to a bribery charge. Bribery is the offering of money, gift, or favors to a person in a position of trust in order to obtain a specific personal benefit. It is unfortunate to witness how bribery affects businesses every single day.

The reason it is so devastating is because the feeling goes beyond being taken advantage of. Dishonesty not only destroys careers, but also jeopardizes the effort that companies have put through many years trying to build their reputation.
