Code Of Conduct
Policy Brief & Purpose
Our Employee Code of Conduct company policy outlines our expectations regarding employees'
behavior towards their colleagues, supervisors and overall organization.
We promote freedom of expression and open communication. But we expect all employees to follow our
code of conduct. They should avoid offending, participating in serious disputes and disrupting our
workplace. We also expect them to foster a well-organized, respectful and collaborative environment.
This policy applies to all our employees regardless of employment agreement or rank.
Employees of DrGmed, Inc., or any of its affiliates or subsidiaries (“DrGmed”), and others
performing work for DrGmed or on its behalf, collectively referred to in this code as “DrGmed
Personnel”, are expected to act lawfully, honestly, ethically, and in the best interests of the
company while performing duties on behalf of DrGmed. This code provides some guidelines for
business conduct required of DrGmed Personnel. Persons who are unsure whether their conduct
or the conduct of other DrGmed Personnel complies with this code should contact their
manager, another DrGmed manager, Human Resources, or the Legal Department. This code
applies to all DrGmed Personnel, including members of the Board of Directors (in connection
with their work for DrGmed), officers, and employees of DrGmed, Inc. and its corporate
affiliates, as well as contingent workers (e.g., agency workers, contractors and consultants) and
others working on DrGmed’s behalf. This code is subject to change and may be amended,
supplemented, or superseded by one or more separate policies.
If any part of this code conflicts with local laws or regulations, only the sections of this
code permitted by applicable laws and regulations will apply. Any policies that are
specifically applicable to your jurisdiction will take precedence to the extent they conflict
with this code.
