Competition Law – is your business protected?
Effective competition is good for business, consumers and the economy. The EU is committed to tackling anti-competitive behaviour. As such, any failure to comply with competition law can have serious consequences. Businesses can receive fines of up to 10% of worldwide turnover. Individuals may find themselves subject to criminal sanctions, including imprisonment. Even minor breaches can result in claims for damages and loss of reputation. It is therefore essential that businesses instil a culture of compliance amongst their staff in order to reduce the risk of breaches of competition law within the workplace.
