The Company practices a ‘Zero Tolerance’ policy against all forms of bribery and corruption. Employees and Business Associates MUST NOT offer, promise or give a bribe to anyone, and MUST NOT request, agree to accept or take a bribe from anyone. Bribery is a crime and penalties can be prison sentences and face heavy financial penalties.
Employees are reminded that they will be subject to strict disciplinary action, including dismissal as well as civil and criminal liability if he/she is found in violation of this policy.
The Company has adopted a “NO GIFT” Policy whereby employees are prohibited from, directly or indirectly, receiving or providing gifts they may be seen or interpreted as bribes that may tarnish its reputation or be in violation of anti-bribery and corruption laws.
However, the company recognises that the exchange of business courtesies, such as modest gifts, hospitality and entertainment (including meals, invitations to attend promotional events or parties) particularly during festive periods is customary and legitimate to create goodwill, and/or strengthen business and commercial relationships. Such courtesies are allowed but they must not exceed the value of RM500 per occasion, per event or per gift.
All Employees are reminded that offering and/or receiving “facilitation payments” / “kickback” is a major misconduct.
Employees are prohibited from providing gifts, entertainment or hospitality to public officials or their family/household members in exchange for future benefits or results. Due diligence must be carried out to confirm that the Public Official is the appropriate person based on his/her official position. Proper care and judgment must be exercised to confirm that there is no conflict of interest when dealing with public officials.
