Employee Conflict of Interest Policy

The Employee Conflict of Interest Policy is a document that describes cases of potential conflicts of interest and how the organization will resolve such conflicts of interest. The purpose of this document is to protect the employer from possible and actual conflicts of interest.

Conflicts of interest arise when employees of an organization have personal loyalties or interests that clash with their employer's interest. Cases of conflicts of interest include: when an employee has a personal financial interest or gain in their employer's business transaction or when the employee works for a business that competes directly with the business of the employer.

Therefore, employees are required to act in the interest of their employer alone and avoid activities that conflict with the employer's interest. However, since employees may not avoid situations that generate conflicts of interest, employers need to specify procedures for handling such conflicts.
