160114 – Promoting Fair Competition
Whether it's a game or business, it's important to compete fairly. In this interactive course, learners choose their game piece and progress through a board game, while learning how to comply with competition and antitrust laws and avoid anticompetitive behavior.
Promoting Fair Competition provides a framework for competing fairly, with a strong emphasis on each employee's individual impact on preventing violations of antitrust and competition laws.
This course starts by ensuring employees can recognize anticompetitive behavior and intent. Next, learners receive instruction on recognizing and avoiding violations when it comes to group conduct among competitors (anti-competitive agreements) and single-firm conduct (abuse of market power). Lastly, the course emphasizes careful and proper documentation and communication and teaches employees how to report known or suspected violations of organizational policy or the law.
