 COMPANY.,  POLICY PROHIBITING SEXUAL HARASSMENT

I.

Statement of Philosophy

COMPANY. (herein after referred to as COMPANY) is proud of its tradition of a collegial work environment in which all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, including clients, customers, employees, vendors, and independent contractors. Each individual has the right to work in a professional atmosphere which promotes equal employment opportunities and prohibits discriminatory practices, including sexual harassment. At COMPANY, sexual harassment, whether verbal, physical, or environmental, is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

II.

Definition of Sexual Harassment

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Guidelines on Discrimination Because of Sex (29 C.F.R. §1604.11(a)) defines conduct which constitutes prohibited sexual harassment. Section 1604.11(a) provides that unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when:

  1. Submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual's employment;
  2. Submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for employment decisions affecting such individual; or
  3. Such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual's work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment.

Examples of sexual harassment include, but are not limited to:

  1. Unwanted sexual advances
  2. Demands for sexual favors in exchange for favorable treatment or continued employment
  3. Threats and/or demands to submit to sexual requests in order to obtain or retain any employment benefit
  4. Verbal conduct such as epithets; derogatory or obscene comments; slurs or sexual invitations; sexual jokes; propositions; suggestive, insulting, or obscene comments or gestures; or other verbal abuse of a sexual nature
  5. Graphic verbal commentary about an individual's body, sexual prowess, or sexual deficiencies
  6. Unwanted flirtations, advances, leering, whistling, touching, pinching, or assault
  7. Coerced sexual acts
  8. Blocking an individual's normal movements

III.

Individuals Covered Under the Policy

This policy covers all individuals in the workplace. COMPANY will not tolerate, condone, or allow sexual harassment, whether by fellow employees, supervisors, managers, customers or other nonemployees who conduct business with this Company. COMPANY encourages the reporting of all incidents of sexual harassment, regardless of who the offender may be, or the nature of the offender's relationship to the Company.

IV.

Reporting the Complaint

While COMPANY encourages individuals who believe they are being harassed to firmly and promptly notify the offender that his or her behavior is unwelcome, the Company also recognizes that power and status disparities between an alleged harasser and a target may make such a confrontation impossible. In the event that such informal, direct communication between individuals is either ineffective or impossible, the following steps should be taken in reporting a sexual harassment complaint:

  1. Notify Appropriate Staff

Individuals who believe they have been sexually harassed should report the incident to all the following individuals:

1) Frederick Costa III / President, C.E.O. of COMPANY / Call (424) 233-5996 and mail to [email protected]

2) Darwin Troupe / Outside Consultant for COMPANY / Call (310) 910-6645 and email to [email protected]

If the complaint is successfully resolved in an informal manner, to the complainant's satisfaction, Fred Costa shall file a confidential report about the complaint and its resolution, so that the company will be aware of any pattern of harassment by a particular individual, and also will be aware of all complaints of sexual harassment on a company-wide basis. If the complaint is not successfully resolved in an informal manner, a written report shall be made to Fred Costa.

  1. Prepare Written Report of Misconduct

An accurate record of objectionable behavior or misconduct is needed to resolve a formal complaint of sexual harassment. Verbal reports of sexual harassment must be reduced to writing by either the complainant or Fred Costa and be signed by the complainant. Individuals who believe they have been or currently are being harassed should maintain a record of objectionable conduct in order to prepare effectively to make their written report and to substantiate their allegations. While COMPANY encourages individuals to keep written notes in order to accurately record offensive conduct or behavior, COMPANY hereby notifies all employees that in the event a lawsuit develops from the reported incident, the complainant's written notes may not be considered privileged or confidential information.

  1. Promptly Report the Complaint

COMPANY encourages a prompt reporting of complaints so that a rapid response and appropriate action may be taken. A prompt report not only aids the complainant, but also helps to maintain an environment free from discrimination for all employees.

V.

Investigating the Complaint

  1. Confidentiality

Any allegation of sexual harassment brought to the attention of the following individuals:

  • Frederick Costa III / President, C.E.O. of COMPANY / Call (424) 233-5996 and email to [email protected]

        2) Darwin Troupe / Outside Consultant for COMPANY / Call (310) 910-6645 and email to [email protected]

, will be promptly investig dated. Confidentiality will be maintained throughout the investigatory process, to the extent practical and appropriate under the circumstances.

  1. Investigation Process

The investigator will try to take the wishes of the complainant under consideration, but will thoroughly investigate the matter, keeping the complainant informed as to the status of the investigation.

VI.

Resolving the Complaint

In order to minimize the damage to COMPANY’s, the complainant, and the alleged harasser, Fred Costa will complete the investigation of a sexual harassment complaint, and communicate his or her findings and intended response to the complainant and alleged harasser, as expeditiously as possible. If COMPANY finds that harassment occurred, the harasser will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action, as listed below (see §VII). The complainant will be informed of the disciplinary action taken. If COMPANY determines that no sexual harassment has occurred, this finding will be communicated to the complainant and to the alleged harasser. If COMPANY cannot determine whether or not sexual harassment occurred, this finding will be communicated to the complainant and to the alleged harasser, and the matter will be recorded as unresolved. In any event, both the complainant and the alleged harasser will be informed again of the procedures set forth in this sexual harassment prevention policy.

VII.

Sanctions

Individuals found to have engaged in misconduct constituting sexual harassment will be subject to appropriate discipline, up to and including discharge and/or termination of services to COMPANY. In addressing incidents of sexual harassment, COMPANY’s response will include, at a minimum, reprimanding the offender and preparing a written record. Additional action may include: referral to counseling, withholding of a promotion, reassignment, and temporary suspension without pay, financial penalties, termination employment, or termination of services to COMPANY. This policy is designed to protect all employees and non employees providing services to COMPANY from harassment in any way associated with the workplace or work environment, regardless of the identity or status of the harasser. Although COMPANY’s ability to discipline a non-employee harasser (e.g., a customer or supplier or independent contractor) may be limited by the degree of control, if any, that it has over the alleged harasser, any employee or non-employee who has been subjected to sexual harassment should file a complaint and be assured that action will be taken. Such action may include closing business with a customer, reporting a supplier to his or her employer, reporting a public official to an appropriate agency, or any other appropriate action to protect the employees and non-employees of COMPANY.

VIII.

Protection Against Retaliation

COMPANY will not in any way retaliate against an individual who makes a complaint of sexual harassment or against any participant in the investigation, nor will it permit any supervisor/manager or employee or non-employee providing a service to COMPANY to do so. Retaliation is a serious violation of this sexual harassment policy and should be reported immediately. Any person found to have retaliated against another individual for reporting sexual harassment will be subject to the same disciplinary action described above (see §VII). An individual who makes an intentional or reckless false complaint also will be subject to the same disciplinary action as described above (see §VII).

IX.

Non-Employee Clause

The industry that COMPANY operates in and the nature of COMPANY’s business requires COMPANY to use the services of independent contractors and other non-employee service providers. Although COMPANY has little control over the actual work environment in which independent contractors and other non-employee service providers render services to the company, independent contractors and non-employee may meet and work together as a result of their relationship with COMPANY. As such, COMPANY may require its independent contractors and non-employee service providers to sign its Policy Prohibiting Sexual Harassment. The act of an independent contractor or non-employee service provider signing this Policy does not change the relationship of the independent contractor or non-employee service provider signing to the status of an employee. An independent contractor or non-employee service provider signing this Policy acknowledges and agree that his or her act of signing this Policy does not constitute and employer and employee relationship between COMPANY and independent contractor or non-employee service provider.

X.

REPRESENTATIVE CODE OF CONDUCT PLEDGE AND SALES STANDARDS


I, the undersigned, fully understand the responsibility I am about to undertake as an independent contractor selling the services of COMPANY to the general public. While I am ultimately responsible for the results of my sales efforts, COMPANY has certain basic requirements that guide my professional behavior. I understand them to be as follows:


  • I will not intentionally misrepresent, or knowingly allow the customer to believe, that I am affiliated with the utility.

    • I agree to make no substantial deviation from the COMPANY script with intent to deceive or mislead the customer.

    • I will not over-promise a percentage of savings, promise a specific dollar-amount of savings, or in any way misrepresent the product.

    • I will not sell to anyone other than the authorized account holder.

    • I understand that Third Party Verification completes a sale that I have made. I will not misuse TPV as a means of continuing the sales process.

    • I will not “slam” a customer, or knowingly allow their service to be switched without their full understanding of COMPANY services.

  • “Slamming” is considered legal fraud, and if I engage in such activities I will be terminated immediately and may be subject to prosecution.

  • Once I have successfully completed the TPV process with the customer on behalf of COMPANY I agree to leave the premises.

    • I agree to not misuse the Enrollment Application. Sales Standards


In these Sales Standards the term “customer” includes both prospective and existing COMPANY PARTNERS’ customers. “Agent” means the person, who is employed by, or an independent agent of COMPANY and who is or will be licensed by COMPANY PARTNERS to sell COMPANY PARTNERS products and services. COMPANY is ultimately responsible for Agent’s compliance with these Sales Standards.

1. Agents must, at all times, prominently display their COMPANY PARTNERS issued Agent identification badge. This badge will include the Agent’s name and photograph.

  1. Agents will be required to immediately identify themselves to the customer by the name displayed on Agent’s badge and as agents for COMPANY PARTNERS. So as not to create any confusion in the mind of a customer about the identity of COMPANY PARTNERS or misrepresent COMPANY PARTNERS as the utility, the name “COMPANY PARTNERS” and associated service/trademark must be used in its exact entirety and cannot be modified in any way.
  2. Agent will:

Conduct themselves with integrity and honesty.

Be polite and courteous with customers, other agents, COMPANY PARTNERS employees, and any other members of the public at large. On behalf of COMPANY

PARTNERS, Agents will always thank an COMPANY PARTNERS customer for their time and/or business.

Immediately report any incident to their supervisor involving the police/law enforcement or any situation

that could have potential brand/reputational risk to COMPANY PARTNERS.

Immediately cease using any outdated COMPANY PARTNERS contract forms or other sales materials upon notification by COMPANY PARTNERS, and will immediately return all outdated unused
forms or materials to COMPANY PARTNERS.

Only use sales material approved by COMPANY PARTNERS management.

a. All approved sales material must be read and understood by Agent before use.
b. Agents will follow any standard sales presentation scripts provided in writing by COMPANY
PARTNERS

Give the customer a copy of any documents that were signed, including, but not limited to, the sales contract.

Submit completed paperwork to Service Provider’s office within 24 hours of a completed sale, or as soon thereafter as is reasonably possible.

Successfully complete COMPANY PARTNERS’s agent training and certification process for general  industry knowledge, legal and regulatory requirements including these Sales Standards, and any COMPANY PARTNERS products and services before marketing any such products or services. COMPANY PARTNERS requires all Agents to attend ongoing training sessions provided by either COMPANY PARTNERS or Service Provider.

Be responsible for obtaining and maintaining knowledge of COMPANY PARTNERS’s products and services, and the general market conditions for those products and services as provided by COMPANY PARTNERS in writing, so that inquiries by customers or prospective customers can be responded to appropriately and completely. Be dressed professionally (business casual) while selling on behalf of COMPANY PARTNERS.

4. Agent will NOT:

Harass customers in any way.

Exert undue pressure on a customer, especially while customer is reading through provided documents.

Make any false or misleading statements, or give any false answers, which are likely to mislead a customer with regard to any term in COMPANY PARTNERS’s offer.

Use a customer’s cancellation rights as a sales tactic by urging a customer to sign now because they can cancel later, or in any other way.

Make any false or malicious statements regarding COMPANY PARTNERS and its Affiliates or employees, or other Agents, or regarding any of COMPANY PARTNERS’s competitors or other industry
participants.

Copy, release, disclose, or use (other than appropriate use in the course of selling on behalf of COMPANY PARTNERS and in accordance with these Sales Standards) confidential or proprietary information, or trade secrets, of COMPANY PARTNERS and its Affiliates or information provided to Agents by COMPANY PARTNERS in respect of customers.

Discriminate in the selection of individual or groups of prospective customers to solicit on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, marital status and any other bases under federal, state or local laws.

Be permitted to wear any of the following types of clothing while selling on behalf of COMPANY PARTNERS

e. Excessively loose or baggy clothing
f. Low fitting or tight fitting clothing

h. Conspicuous piercings
i. Unnatural hair color
j. Any other non-approved clothing
5. The breach of any civil or criminal law by an Agent, whether committed against a member of the
public at large, another Agent, or an COMPANY PARTNERS employee, will be grounds for
immediate termination of Agent’s license.

Forgery is a crime. Suspicion of forgery will result in suspension of an Agent’s license during investigation. Any Agent found to be guilty of forgery will have their license terminated immediately, any monies otherwise owing to the Agent will be withheld, and the Agent will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

Harassment of an Agent by a customer, or anyone else, is also a crime, and should be reported promptly to COMPANY PARTNERS so that COMPANY PARTNERS can take all appropriate action to protect the rights of its Agents.

 

  1. These Sales Standards are ongoing requirements and Agents are required to have this document accessible at all times for reference as required.

    Agents are expected to be familiar with, and must adhere to, the Sales Standards.

    Agents will follow all additional Sales Standards and policies of conduct as may be communicated to them in writing by COMPANY PARTNERS from time to time.

 

  1. Upon termination of employment with Service Provider for whatever reason, Agents must immediately return identification badges, uniforms or clothing provided by COMPANY PARTNERS (either directly or
    through the Agent’s employer), all sales materials, sales forms and sales aids, all customer information, and any other property of COMPAN'S PARTNERS.

 

  1. Agent’s signature below attests to their completion of all training that is required before marketing on behalf of COMPANY PARTNERS.
