Standards of Conduct

Integrity

Integrity is a core value in the B.C. public sector. To protect the integrity of FII and its employees, and to ensure employees are aware of behaviour which might damage their or FII’s reputation, a comprehensive Standards of Conduct policy is in place at FII.

Compliance with the Standards of Conduct

FII’s Standards of Conduct policy applies to all employees of FII, and its subsidiary companies. Adhering to the Standards of Conduct is mandatory when employed by FII. Signing an employment offer letter constitutes a contractual agreement to abide by FII’s policies, including the Standards of Conduct. Failure to comply with the Standards of Conduct may result in disciplinary action up to and including dismissal, or in the case of a contractor, failure to comply may result in termination of the contract.

The CEO is ultimately responsible for ensuring the Standards of Conduct are uniformly adhered to throughout the organization.

Compliance with the Law

FII’s Standards of Conduct policy is based in part on the Province of BC’s Standards of Conduct policy and aligns with the BC Human Rights Act and the Canadian Human Rights Act.
