Mahwah, NJ (PRWEB) March 11, 2013
WeComply, Inc., a leader in online ethics and compliance training for employees, has announced a new version of its Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) training course. This course is based on the new SEC/DOJ Resource Guide published in November 2012 and explains the major principles of U.S. anti-corruption law.
The FCPA course traces the historical background of the FCPA and explains the importance of compliance, as well as the significant costs of non-compliance. The course goes on to cover the basic principles of the FCPA, including the concepts foreign officials, corrupt intent, monetary payments, gifts, meals and entertainment, and travel expenses. The course also covers the actions of agents, red flags, exceptions and defenses, recordkeeping and penalties.
“Although the law itself has not changed," said Mike Pallatta, WeComply CEO, "the SEC/DOJ Resource Guide brings some much-needed clarity to how enforcement authorities view and approach FCPA violations, prosecutions and settlements. In addition to incorporating these new insights, we’ve enriched our course further by adding new video vignettes and quiz questions.”
