On this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, Michael Milnes breaks down a new legislative amendment that is currently before parliament intending to tackle corporate corruption and foreign bribery.
The principal of Supplied Legal joins host Jerome Doraisamy to delve into Australia’s shortcomings in taking initiative in this area thus far, the different kinds of foreign bribery that can occur, and instances where Australians have been susceptible to such corruption in the past.
Michael outlines the major changes that will be implemented in this bill, how the new offence will affect and encourage companies to take a proactive approach to compliance, and when the new legislation is expected to take effect.
