British drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline is looking into allegations of bribery within its operations in Jordan and Lebanon.

On Monday, the BBC reported that GlaxoSmithKline PLC is involved in a bribery investigation in Poland, where a sales representative allegedly paid doctors to prescribe the company's asthma drug Seretide. The company said it learned of the allegations in 2011 and found evidence of inappropriate communications by an employee. It says that employee was disciplined.

The company is dealing with a corruption investigation in China and is looking into alleged bribery in Iraq.
