Survey conducted by the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics and Health Care Compliance Association

MINNEAPOLIS, March 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In the face of reports on AIG bonuses it is surprising to learn that business is fairly restrictive of the gifts employees can give and receive and how they can entertain, according to the results of a survey the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics (SCCE) and Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA) released today.

Surprisingly, a little less than a third of respondents reported that their organization had updated its entertainment policy in the last six months.
