As a recruitment company operating in Malaysia, we recognize the importance of combating corruption in all its forms. This Anti-Corruption Policy is designed to establish guidelines and procedures to prevent corruption and bribery within our organization and ensure compliance with all applicable anti-corruption laws and regulations in Malaysia.

 

This policy applies to all employees, directors, consultants, agents, contractors, and any other individuals acting on behalf of Intelek.

DEFINITIONS

  • Corruption: Any act of bribery, extortion, embezzlement, fraud, or abuse of power for personal gain or to obtain an unfair advantage.

  • Offering, giving, or accepting bribes or improper advantages, whether in monetary form, gifts, favours, or any other benefit, to secure business or favourable treatment.
  • Engaging in any form of corruption, including embezzlement, kickbacks, or fraudulent activities.
  • Facilitating payments, which are small payments made to expedite routine administrative processes, but are illegal and prohibited under this policy.
  • Providing false or misleading information to auditors, investigators, or any government agency.

The company will protect the confidentiality of the individual reporting the violation to the extent permitted by law and will not tolerate any retaliation against whistle-blowers.

 

Violation of this Anti-Corruption Policy will result in appropriate disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment or contract. In serious cases, legal actions may also be pursued against the individuals involved in corruption or bribery.

 

Intelek will provide training to all employees and representatives to raise awareness about corruption, bribery, and the importance of complying with this policy and relevant laws.

 

This policy will be reviewed periodically to ensure it remains effective and up-to-date with changing laws and best practices.
