China's Anti-Corruption Crackdown: How Company Policies Should Deal with Employees Who Break the Law

Kevin Jones, the leader of Faegre Baker Daniels' labor and employment practice in China, has authored several articles for Inside Counsel on efforts by the Chinese government to crack down on companies in violation of Chinese anti-bribery laws.

His latest Inside Counsel article cites a specific case he worked on where company policies hadn’t addressed situations of bribery. He reminded readers that in China, grounds for termination must be specifically stated in company policy, and that breaking the law isn’t an automatic ground for termination in the country. While most companies in China have robust compliance programs to adhere to requirements of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), Jones said companies operating in China must also have programs in place centered around Chinese anti-bribery law requirements.
