COURSE TITLE: Ethical Issue: Deciding if Something is a Gift or a Bribe
COURSE NO: LE1-007
Ethical Issue: Deciding if Something is a Gift or a Bribe
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course will establish, through the presentation of many examples, the principles of distinguishing between a gift and a bribe.

 

The federal government has formulated detailed rules covering gifts given to executive-branch employees in many situations. The rules are published in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and are illustrated through many examples. Even though the examples are intended for government employees (many of whom are engineers), they also apply to private-sector engineers in similar situations. This course presents selected CFR examples that furnish guidance on the ethics of gift giving in situations that are especially relevant to engineers.

 

This 1 PDH online course is intended for engineers seeking guidance on distinguishing between ethical gift-giving and bribery.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Familiarizing with definitions of a bribe and a gift
  • Knowing the bribe status of a gift based on a personal relationship
  • Understanding the conditions under which gifts to spouses are acceptable
  • Knowing the need to avoid even the appearance of a gift being a bribe
  • Recognizing when gifts involving free attendance at meetings and conferences are acceptable
  • Understanding the importance of the cumulative effect of receiving even small gifts on a periodic basis
  • Learning the importance of gifts received when on assignment rather than outside of work
