Identifying employee misconduct before it leads to a culture of "skirting the rules" is critical for the good reputation of any organization. Employees and management need to have robust systems in place to deal with allegations of misconduct.

  1. Identification of red flags for corruption and bribery;

  2. Understanding what tools and practices are available to investigate the red flags;

  3. Identification of who should lead an internal investigation; and

  4. Identification of which allegations should be reported.
