Hudor Cleaning Services will comply with ACCC regulated mandatory industry codes prescribed under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010, and with any relevant codes of practice that apply to the business in the state or territory where its operations or activities are being carried out, currently in Queensland.
The company will inform all employees of their obligations, duties and responsibilities under a relevant code of practice, and adopt measure to ensure that employees act in accordance with the Employee Code of Conduct at all times while at work. We believe that minimum standards of behaviour and conduct are necessary to maintain a productive, nonviolent and safe work environment.
Aims and Objectives
The company requires all employees (including line management) to comply with the Employee Code of Conduct at all times in carrying out their roles, functions and duties within the company. The Code of Conduct provides clear instructions on what employees can and cannot do in the course of their employment.
Implementation and Application
Hudor staff must comply with the Hudor code of conduct procedure that reflects appropriate performance and behavioural standards in relevant legislation.
Hudor management will seek input from relevant stakeholders (including employees) in the development of the code of conduct. Senior management is responsible for disseminating the code to employees, and for providing information and training in how employees are to comply with the code.
Hudor Management team will also be responsible for the enforcement of the code, including disciplinary procedures for violations of the code and for review of the code to ensure that it remains relevant and effective.
All employees have responsibilities to maintain company values in the following areas:
- Ethical principles – including workplace behaviour and respect for all people in keeping with anti-discrimination laws.
- Values – including contributing to and maintaining an honest, unbiased and unprejudiced work environment.
- Accountability – including taking responsibility for their own actions, ensuring the appropriate use of information, exercising diligence in the conduct of their duty of care obligations, and avoiding conflicts of interest.
- Standards of conduct – including complying with their job description; commitment to the company, and proper use of information technology (including internet, social media and email).
- Standards of practice – including current policies, procedures, and business operating manuals.
- Disciplinary actions – including complaints handling and specific penalties for any violation of the code of conduct.
Failure to adhere to the Code of Conduct will result in reasonable and necessary disciplinary action. The disciplinary action will cause the ongoing employment status to be reviewed and could lead to the termination of employment. An individual may also be exposed to criminal or civil liability for a breach of relevant legislation.
