HHHunt respects the privacy of all employees and recognizes that individuals are entitled to freely choose their personal associations and relationships but intends to avoid situations where the employment of relatives or domestic partners, or amorous relationships among coworkers, provide an opportunity for conflicts of interest. The Company is mindful that familial and amorous relationships in the workplace may create the perception or the real possibility of favoritism and unfair advantage or the opportunity for exploitation; may lead to the inappropriate use of power, trust or authority; or may create distractions, impede productivity, and/or undermine professionalism, any of which negatively affects the fairness and objectivity that is essential to a healthy working environment (individually or collectively „Conflict of Interest‰).
