Royal Mail makes bribery warning over festive tips

Post by Martyn20 on Mon Dec 05, 2011 3:30 am

The Royal Mail has warned staff not to accept Christmas gifts valued at more than £30 for fear of bribery charges.
In guidance on its website, Royal Mail said although it is the "season of goodwill", staff needed to be careful not to "fall foul of the Bribery Act".
The new Bribery Act, which came into force on 1 July, made it illegal to offer or receive bribes, and to fail to prevent bribery.
Royal Mail said tips could be accepted, but not in return for favours.

BBC Story

They will ask for a written statement that you do not want anything in return for you £1 tip, bloody nightmare. What could a postman give you in return, a morning delivery for a change, like we had in the 1970's
