AbstractThis is a series of articles published by the Ethics Office at Texas Instruments Corporation in the company newsletter TNEWS. These article look at the issue of gifts and bribes that employees may receive from customers. While some exchange of gifts and hospitalities is acceptable, these gifts do come with many responsibilities and potential problems. Much of the advice seen here is in response to calls the Ethics Office has received from TI employees.
