Business Conduct Principles
Last Modified: May 7, 2023
As a leader in Contract Lifecycle Management Software, we recognize our responsibility to make our employee community successful. We also understand that part of that success depends on our ability to manage our business ethically, transparently, and responsibly. That is why we have adopted this set of values that we call our Business Conduct Principles.
We comply with the laws and regulations that are applicable in the jurisdictions where we operate. These Business Conduct Principles, in addition to our Code of Conduct and other internal policies, communicate our values and expectations. The Principles outlined below reflect the core values we uphold in our own policies, and we expect our employee community to follow the spirit and intent of these guiding Principles.
Reporting Questionable Behavior
If you are not sure how to handle something, or if you think there is a problem, speak up! We support the reporting of any conduct, including conduct of any Mochadocs employee, that the reporter believes in good faith to be an actual, apparent, or potential violation of these Principles. Reports will be investigated in a respectful, professional manner as promptly and confidentially as possible.
We only use voluntary labor and verify all new hires have the right to work in the country location they've been hired for, or are currently working in. We do not use forced or involuntary labor of any type (e.g., forced, bonded, indentured or involuntary prison labor), or any form of human trafficking. This includes transporting, harboring, recruiting, transferring or receiving any person by means of threat, force, coercion, abduction or fraud for the purpose of exploitation. All employees, including interns, are free to leave work at any time or terminate their employment without reprisal. Employees are not required to surrender any government-issued identification, passports, or work permits as a condition of employment. There are no unreasonable restrictions on employees’ freedom of movement in our workplace in addition to unreasonable restrictions on entering or exiting company-provided facilities.
We do not use child labor. “Child” is any person employed under the minimum age for employment in the relevant country. We support the use of legitimate workplace
apprenticeship programs which comply with all the laws and regulations applicable to such apprenticeship programs. Employees under the age of 18 do not perform work that is likely to jeopardize their health, safety or well-being.
Mochadocs believes every human life has equal value and should be treated with dignity and respect. We strive to uphold the basic human rights of every individual across all business transactions. We treat all our employee community with dignity and respect and do not use corporal punishment, threats of violence or other forms of physical or psychological coercion, harassment, abuse or intimidation.
Wages, Benefits and Working Hours
We comply with all applicable wage and hour laws and regulations, including those relating to minimum wages, overtime hours, piece rates and other elements of compensation, and provide legally mandated benefits. We offer our employees opportunities to develop their skills and capabilities. We do not exceed prevailing local work hours and we appropriately compensate overtime. We do not force our employees to work more than the allowable time required to work without their consent. All employees are provided with clear and understandable written information about their employment conditions with respect to wages, benefits, location of work, living conditions, housing and associated costs, including any costs charged to employee before they enter employment and as needed throughout their term of employment.
Freedom of Association, Collective Bargaining and Workers Councils
We respect the legal rights of our employees to associate freely, bargain collectively, join or not join trade unions, seek representation and join workers’ councils in accordance with local laws, without fear of reprisal, intimidation, or harassment. Non-Discrimination and Respect at Work We affirm the principle of equal employment in our employee community. We do not discriminate in hiring and employment practices on the grounds of race, color, religion, sex, national origin or ancestry, age, medical condition or disability, veteran status, marital status, pregnancy, sexual orientation, transgender status, gender identity or expression.
When recruiting, developing and promoting our employees, our decisions will be based solely on performance, merit, competence and potential. We prohibit harassment in any form and practice and promote a work environment free from harassment.
Protection of the Environment
We recognize the importance of the environment around us. We conduct business and operate in a manner that is protective of the environment. At a minimum, we comply with all applicable environmental laws, regulations and standards, such as requirements regarding chemical and waste management and disposal, recycling, industrial wastewater treatment and discharge, air emissions controls, environmental permits and environmental reporting.
Health and Safety at Work
We provide our employees with a safe and healthy workplace in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. Consistent with these obligations, we have effective programs that encompass occupational safety, emergency preparedness, occupational injury and illness, industrial hygiene, physically demanding work, machine safeguarding, sanitation and ergonomics. We are a drug and weapons free workplace.
Doing Business Ethically and within the Law
Our employee community observe the highest ethical principles in performing work. We are familiar and strictly comply with all laws and regulations on bribery, corruption, and prohibited business practices. We have not and will not corruptly offer, promise, or make or agree to make any payments or gifts, of money or anything of value, directly or indirectly to anyone for the purpose of influencing decisions. We comply with all applicable import controls, export controls, and other global trade laws and regulations worldwide.
Doing Business Fairly
Our employees comply with all applicable fair business, advertising and competition laws, including fair trading and antitrust laws. We perform all business dealings transparently and these dealings will be accurately reflected in our business books and records.
