Anti-Bribery, Corruption and Modern Slavery


Get in touch information is loading


Recommended CPD point allocation: 7 points (excluding WA).

Regulators around the world, including Australia, are becoming more aggressive in investigating and enforcing anti-bribery, corruption and modern slavery (ABCMS) laws.

Severe penalties – including fines and even terms of imprisonment – can be imposed on individuals and corporations for being involved in bribery, corruption or modern slavery; breaching relevant legislation; and failing to implement robust compliance programs that mitigate risks. Even more extensive consequences include reputational damage as well as a loss of confidence among employees and business counterparts.

As the global economy becomes increasingly integrated, regulators are also co-operating across international boundaries and focusing on high-risk regions as is evidenced by the creation of an OECD Global Network for investigators and prosecutors. This means that as well as being subject to Australian ABCMS legislation, Australian companies and directors (or companies doing business in Australia) must also understand legislation in other jurisdictions.
