You can use this Conflict of Interest Policy to create a process for the disclosure of any conflicts of interest that your employees may have. Using this policy helps protect your Company by ensuring that you are aware of any circumstances that may create a conflict of interest, and address these before they can erode public or internal trust in your Company, damage the Company’s reputation or financial position, or even expose you to a breach of the law.
