Codes of conduct
Employment and the Workplace
Equal Employment Opportunity/Nondiscrimination
We believe that all terms and conditions of employment should be based on an individual's ability to do the job and not on the basis of personal characteristics or beliefs. We provide employees with a working environment free of discrimination, harassment, intimidation or coercion relating directly or indirectly to race, religion, sexual orientation, political opinion or disability.
We do not use any prison, slave, indentured, or forced labor in the manufacture of any of our products.
Coercion and Harassment
We acknowledge the value of our staff and treat each employee with dignity and respect. We do not use cruel and unusual disciplinary practices such as threats of violence or other forms of physical, sexual, psychological or verbal harassment or abuse.
Ethical Business Practices
It is our policy to prohibit employees from entering into sensitive transactions -- business dealings generally considered to be either illegal, immoral, unethical or to reflect adversely on the integrity of the Company. These transactions usually come in the form of bribes, kickbacks, gifts of significant value or payoffs made to favorably influence some decision affecting a company's business or for personal gain of an individual.
Inspection and Documentation
We designate one or more of our officers to inspect and certify that the company's Code of Conduct is being observed. Records of this certification shall be accessible to our employees, agents, or third parties upon request.
