The Intersection between the FCPA and Other Laws

FCPA is one of several U.S. laws prohibiting giving or offering something of value to obtain an improper business advantage.   Therefore, conduct that would violate the FCPA also may violate other laws.  Because certain activities that violate the FCPA also may violate other laws, it is important to learn about these other laws to avoid additional legal liability.   In addition, several U.S. criminal and civil statutes are broader than the FCPA and can be used by prosecutors to punish corrupt acts that do not meet the requirements of an FCPA violation.  Prosecutors also may charge companies or individuals with violating these other laws in FCPA prosecutions to increase the penalties or jail sentences.   This module introduces other U.S. laws that healthcare professionals should be aware of that are similar to or overlap with the FCPA.

Risk Monitoring and Mitigation

FCPA investigations can devastate an individual or company. FCPA fines and penalties usually are significant, and for individuals, they may include imprisonment. The collateral consequences of an FCPA investigation could also be destructive to an entity’s reputation and business opportunities, and prosecution may yield revocation of import/export licenses and debarment from government contracts and grants. Given the risks of noncompliance, it is important for healthcare professionals to understand how to conduct an FCPA risk assessment and to know strategies for mitigating and monitoring FCPA risk.
