Frequently Asked Questions
What is the purpose of Corporate Liability Provisions, MACC (amendment) 2018 which is known as the Corporate Liability Act 2018?
Legislatively, it is aimed at enhancing good corporate governance in the private sector. Both employers and employees are correlatively responsible for conducting their duties and carrying out clean business activities in good faith.
A person is associated with a commercial organization if he is a director, partner, or an employee of the commercial organization or he is a person who performs services for or on behalf of the commercial person. In simple terms, it refers to company director / business partner / owner/ controller / senior management officer / employee / agent.
Is the Corporate Liability Act 2018 only applicable to unlawful activities committed by employees in Malaysia?
The Act covers unlawful activities like bribery performed by any employees within and out of Malaysia. For instance, a company director/owner/controller/senior officer is liable if an employee commits an act of bribery in UK, and legislatively they can be prosecuted in Malaysia.

How do we safeguard, protect or discharge an innocent company director / business partner / owner / controller / senior management officer from unlawful activities committed by an employee / agent?
The company director/business partner/owner/controller/senior management officer need to prove that the commercial organization had in place “adequate procedures” designed to prevent persons associated with the commercial organization from undertaking such unlawful activities. The ‘adequate procedures” includes trainings, policies, integrity framework etc.
