Our Code of Ethics
IAEWS Members are leaders in their industry. In acknowledgement of that role, they have developed and agreed to abide by the following Code of Ethics. It is the only such set of standards in the global online employment services industry.
We will operate with respect for our customers and deliver our products and services as promised. In addition, we will compete fairly in the marketplace and not slander our competitors. For example, Members will provide easy-to-find and up-to-date contact information on their sites for both employers and job seekers.
We will not engage in deceitful or deceptive business practices. We will deliver our products and services as they are represented in our sales and marketing materials and provide accurate data on their performance and our operations. For example, Members will make every effort to ensure that all job postings displayed on their sites are genuine employment opportunities.
We will serve the interests of all of our customers-employers, recruiters and job seekers. We will resolve customer issues to the best of our ability. For example, Members will clearly state how long a resume will be archived on their sites and respect that commitment.
We acknowledge that compliance with the IAEWS Code of Ethics is a condition of membership in the Association. We will adhere to the Code in all aspects of our business operations and expeditiously remediate any areas of noncompliance.
