Corruption is defined as an illegal activity that involves the abuse of power for personal gains. While many corruption cases involve individuals or businesses intentionally committing illicit acts, many more are unfortunately the result of simple misunderstandings or ignorance concerning corruption laws and best practices. This lack of knowledge is concerning, as while you may not consider corruption to be a typical workplace hazard, it can have significant financial and legal consequences for employees, organizations, marketplaces, and society as a whole.
