Air Technology’s policy generally prohibits receiving gifts, entertainment or other gratuities from people with whom Air Technology does business, because doing so could imply an obligation on the part of the Company and potentially pose a conflict of interest.
Exempted from this policy are gifts such as t-shirts, pens, trade show bags and the like that employees obtain, as members of the public, at events such as conferences, training events, seminars, and trade shows, that are offered equally to all members of the public attending the event.
Also exempted are food, beverages, and moderately priced meals or tickets to local events that are supplied by and also attended by current customers, partners, and vendors or suppliers in the interest of building positive business relationships.
This moderately priced entertainment is provided as part of a “working” meeting or session to benefit and advance positive working relationships and company interests. These activities are expected to be reciprocated by our company in turn.
Employment must be voluntarily and freely chosen. We expect our suppliers to verify the legal employment eligibility of employees to work and not use prison labour, indentured or bonded labour, human trafficking, or modern day slavery.
Corporal punishment or other forms of mental and/or physical coercion must not be used.
Employees of suppliers should not be required to lodge deposits or identity papers, or to pay recruitment fees, and should be free to leave their employer after reasonable notice.
