The following guidelines support our policy of ethical employee and business conduct:

Employee Conduct

  1. Disrespectful Behaviour
    The leaders of Jurutera Jasa foster a culture of mutual respect and appreciation among its employees to create a friendly atmosphere in which genuine teamwork can flourish and formation of supportive characters in our employees is nurtured. Employees who are disrespectful, unreasonably difficult, demeaning, belittling, bullying, intimidating and abusive are unwelcome in our company, even if they are technically impressive and bring in revenue for the company.
  2. Dishonest Behaviour
    The company expects the highest level integrity in our employees in the delivery of work, when making personal financial claims, and in their dealings with the company’s clients and suppliers. The company has zero tolerance to dishonesty, fraud and corrupt practice in its employees.
  3. Inclusion and Diversity Inclusion and Diversity
    This is a very core part of our company values. No discrimination and harassment of any individual or segment of our diverse employees will be tolerated.
  4. Health, Safety and Environment
    Safe and healthy work environments for our employees are our top priority. Anyone who is found to be responsible for causing or allowing a situation to persist so as to give rise to unsafe and unhealthy situations in our workplaces will be subject to disciplinary actions. The authority for setting rulings and standards for workplace health and safety is the DOSH of Malaysia. We are fully committed to ensure sustainability of our environments and all our employees shall strictly adhere to authority guidelines and laws for environmental protection in their work. Best management practices (BMP) shall be adopted for projects to mitigate environmental impacts where regulations are not found.
  5. Workplace Violence, Drugs and Alcohol
    Our commitment to a safe working environment mandates that we will act against any form of workplace violence. The company’s actions will include disciplinary actions, dismissal and criminal prosecution. Drugs and alcohol are strictly prohibited in the workplaces to ensure safety and violations will be subject to similar actions as for workplace violence.
  6. Intellectual Property Rights
    The Company values its intellectual properties rights, which is an important (but sometimes intangible) part of the company’s asset. The designs that we develop, which are recorded in our drawings, special specifications, reports and calculations, are our intellectual property. The intellectual property developed by an employee while working in our company remains the property of the company. No intellectual property of the company shall be transmitted to outside parties without the expressed consent of the company and doing so is a violation of company rules and can result in disciplinary actions and criminal prosecution.
  7. Use of Computer Software
    All computer software used in the company’s computers shall be properly licensed. All employees are prohibited from downloading or copying pirated software into the computer that he or she is using. All employees are also prohibited from bringing their own computers into the company’s office except with permission from the company’s management.

Business Ethics

  1. Personal Conflict of Interest
    When making decisions for the company, any individual who has a direct or indirect interest that can influence his or her decisions must declare such conflict of interest to his or her supervisor.
  2. Organizational Conflict of Interest
    A potential conflict of interest in respect of the company may arise when our service to a client conflicts with the interest of another or other clients. A conflict of interest may occur when our service to a client conflicts with the interest of a business in which the company or the company owners or directors have a stack. All conflict of interest in the company level shall be declared to the relevant and affected clients for instructions.
  3. Prevention of Bribery, Corruption and Collusion
    All forms of bribery, corruption and collusion are strictly unacceptable in our company and in our business dealings with our clients, our partners, our suppliers and our competitors. Any employee who discovers or is suspicious of any bribery, corruption, collusion, fraud or money laundering activities happening in or involving the company is to report it to anyone of the Board of Directors of the company. The anonymity of the informants will be protected by the company. We do not view strategic joint venture and partnership with other consulting firms as collusion, provided they are made known to the clients.
  4. Gifts and Entertainment
    We recognise that company gifts and meals are useful for building courteous working relationships with our clients and suppliers. However, when we offer gifts and meals, we should be guided by good judgment. The following are some useful guidelines:
    1. The gifts must not be in cash or cash equivalent, other than during special occasion such as wedding dinner, cultural birthday celebrations and funerals. For these special occasions, the cash gifts shall be nominal in value or appropriate in amount.
    2. The gifts are not specifically prohibited under any regulations or conditions of contract.
    3. The gifts and meals should be infrequent, unsolicited, offered in good taste and not at inappropriate times (e.g when clients are in the midst of evaluating our commercial proposal).
    4. If any employee is offered gifts which do not fit these guidelines, he or she is to politely decline them citing the company’s Employee Conduct & Business Ethics Policy as the reason for his or her action.
