Code of Business Conduct
Husky and its employees will conduct themselves in accordance with the Husky Code of Business Conduct. As set out in the Code, employees are expected to accept certain responsibilities, adhere to acceptable legal business principles, and exhibit a high degree of personal integrity at all times. The Code sets out the standards an employee is expected to meet, and includes sections on compliance with laws, avoidance of conflict of interest, proper record-keeping, political contributions, safeguarding of company resources, fair competition, bribery or other offering of payments, and guidelines on accepting payments and entertainment.
Husky takes very seriously any allegation that an employee has not conducted him or herself in accordance with the Code of Business Conduct. Anyone who is concerned about a potential instance of non-compliance by a Husky employee or contractor is encouraged to discuss it with their supervisor or manager. If that is inappropriate, ineffective, or uncomfortable, you may report the potential non-compliance through the Ethics Help Line.
An employee who is found to have engaged in conduct contrary to the Code of Business Conduct will be disciplined, up to and including termination of employment for just cause.
Husky prohibits retaliatory action against any employee who, in good faith, reports a possible violation.
