Anti Corruption and Bribery Policy
It is the policy of Manor Scaffolding Limited to conduct business in an honest and ethical manner. As part of that, the company takes a zero-tolerance approach to bribery and corruption and is committed to acting professionally, fairly and with integrity in all its business dealings and relationships, wherever it operates, and implementing and enforcing effective systems to counter bribery.
Manor Scaffolding Limited will uphold all laws relevant to countering bribery and corruption in all the jurisdictions in which it conducts business, including, in the UK, the Bribery Act 2010 (the Act), which applies to conduct both in the UK and abroad.
This policy applies to all individuals working for or on behalf of the company whether permanent, fixed-term or temporary, casual staff, agency staff or any other person who performs services for or on behalf of the company (collectively referred to as Workers in this policy).
In this policy, Third Party means any individual or organisation that Workers come into contact with during the course of work and the running of the company’s business, and includes actual and potential clients, intermediaries, referrers of work, suppliers, distributors, business contacts, agents, advisers, government and public bodies.
A bribe is an inducement or reward offered, promised or provided in order to improperly gain any commercial, contractual, regulatory or personal advantage, which may constitute an offence under the Act, namely:
- giving or offering a bribe;
- receiving or requesting a bribe
The company may also be liable under the Act if it fails to prevent bribery by an associated person (including, but not limited to Workers) for the company’s benefit.
