Ethics Policy

Ethics is a set of moral principles, a code for right and wrong, or behavior, which conforms to, accepted professional practices. Fraud is an intentional act of deceit that may result in legal prosecution. Unethical actions become fraudulent when a law is violated.

For example, it is unethical to manufacture results for any reason. It becomes fraud when the results are mailed or faxed to the client (wire fraud or mail fraud). All employees at all times shall conduct themselves in an honest and ethical manner. Compliance with this policy will be strictly enforced. Unethical behavior is grounds for immediate termination.

Examples of unethical behavior include, but are not limited to the following: · Artificially fabricating results · Misrepresenting data such as analysis results, calibration, etc. · Intentional deletion of non-compliant data · Improper manipulation of data or software · Improper handling of data errors, non-compliant data, or QC outliers · Lack of reporting unethical behavior by others
