V Teamers in relevant operational roles receive anti-corruption training and communications that clearly articulate our expectations, core principles and zero tolerance for corrupt activities or unethical business practices. Our training, which incorporates practical examples, helps employees understand and comply with various anti-bribery laws, including the U.K. Bribery Act and the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. We instruct employees to seek legal approval before giving anything of value to a public official. We supplement our general compliance training with targeted communications and in-person instruction on an as-needed basis.
Verizon enforces a zero-tolerance policy for unethical business practices, including bribery or corruption of any kind.
