Gifts, Bribes & Kickbacks


Bribes, kickbacks or other payments, (other than received in the normal course of business including travel or entertainment) which are intended to influence a business decision or compromise independent judgment are strictly prohibited.

Accepting cash or cash equivalents, including cheques, money orders, vouchers, gift certificates, loans, stock or stock options that might place an employee under obligation is forbidden. Employees must politely but firmly decline any such offer.

Any employee found guilty of paying or receiving bribes, gifts or kickbacks will be promptly reported to the appropriate authorities.
