PUBLISHERS’ RESPONSIBILITIES AND WARRANTIES:
TRAINING AND LEADERSHIP:
CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM; ETHICS:
BE desires to provide its independent Publishers with the best products and services and Compensation Plan in the industry. Accordingly, BE values constructive criticism and encourages the submission of written comments addressed to BE Compliance Team.
Negative and disparaging comments about BE, its products or Compensation Plan, by Publishers, made to BE, in the Field or at BE meetings or events, or disruptive behavior at BE meetings or events, serve no purpose other than to dampen the enthusiasm of other BE Publishers. BE Publishers must not belittle BE, other BE Publishers, BE products or services, the Compensation Plan, or BE directors, officers, or employees, product suppliers or agents. Such conduct represents a material breach of these Policies and Procedures and may be subject to sanctions as deemed appropriate by BE.
BE is committed to providing Publishers with a sales environment free from harassment, intimidation, and abuse from other Publishers, employees, vendors, and any other individuals in the workplace. At BE, harassment of any kind will not be tolerated and is strictly prohibited, such as: derogatory or threatening comments, inappropriate sexual behaviour including but not limited to unwelcome sexual advances or requests for sexual favours, displaying visual images of a sexual nature, physical or verbal harassment, or violent conduct. BE Publishers are encouraged to report any type of harassment incidents immediately. BE will not tolerate acts or threats of violence and will investigate all reports. BE can take action if the concerned reporting Publisher provides us with the necessary information, evidences and a written complaint made to the Compliance Team of BE through a formal channel like emails.
BE ENDORSES THE FOLLOWING CODE OF ETHICS:
v. BE may take appropriate action against a Publisher if it determines, in its sole discretion, that a Publisher’s conduct is detrimental, disruptive, or injurious to BE or to other Publishers.
REPORTING POLICY VIOLATION:
CROSS SPONSORING PROHIBITION:
ADHERENCE TO THE BE COMPENSATION PLAN:
ADHERENCE TO LAWS AND ORDINANCES: Many cities and counties have laws regulating certain home-based businesses. In most cases, these ordinances do not apply to Publishers because of the nature of the business. However, Publishers must check their local laws and obey the laws that do apply to them. A BE Publisher shall comply with all federal, state and local laws and regulations in their conduct of BE business.
