Defence for employee

(1) In any proceedings for an offence under this Part brought against any employee in respect of an act or conduct alleged to have been done or engaged in, as the case may be, by the employee, it is a defence for the employee to prove that he did the act or engaged in the conduct in good faith —
(a) in the course of his employment; or
(b) in accordance with instructions given to him by or on behalf of his employer in the course of his employment.
(2) Subsection (1) does not apply to an employee who, at the time the act was done or the conduct was engaged in, was an officer and it is proved —
(a) the act was done or the conduct was engaged in with the consent or connivance of that officer; or
(b) the act done or the conduct engaged in was attributable to any neglect on the part of that officer.
(3) In subsection (2), “officer” has the same meaning as in section 52(5).
