Minite has an obligation to conduct its business in accordance with all applicable rules, regulations and laws. We are committed to helping all Users act in a way that preserves trust and respect. This Code is meant as a guide to using our Site appropriately and must be followed at all times. Breaches of this Code are handled according to our Violations Policy will result in disciplinary action, up to, and including, account termination. Any questions regarding this Code should be addressed to the Minite Support Team where we can provide you with additional information regarding the correct procedure(s) to follow, and address any concerns you may have.
We’re committed to making sure that all Users demonstrate high standards of professional conduct.
Client and Contractor will strictly engage in a professional relationship only. Minite will not accept or tolerate behaviour that breaches professional boundaries.
Users should avoid putting themselves in a position where it could be perceived that they are breaching professional boundaries, and/or where it is perceived there is, or could be, an abuse of power.
Users will behave in a professional and respectful manner at all times, maintaining appropriate professional boundaries. Users will maintain clear boundaries between professional and personal matters. Staff will not put themselves in a position where their behavior could be considered to be overstepping appropriate professional boundaries, and risk triggering complaints of unacceptable behavior or a conflict of interest, even where such an outcome was not intended.
Some examples of unacceptable behavior, that Users must avoid, include but are not limited to:
a) Aggressive or abusive behavior, including rude language, personal insults or threatening to harm another person.
b) Unwanted and/or inappropriate physical contact.
c) Unwanted, inappropriate, excessive or flirtatious contact or messages either directly or indirectly.
d) Inappropriate remarks, references, comments, messages or jokes (either face to face, electronically or via social media). For example, remarks relating to an individual’s personal characteristics (protected or otherwise), and/or professional reputation, which are derogatory or detrimental in nature.
e) Intimate/inappropriate gestures (e.g. unsolicited gifts).
f) Meeting a Contractor alone, outside of the workplace, for purposes unrelated to work activity.

Minite will take any allegations of inappropriate behavior very seriously and will ensure that all issues are investigated thoroughly and independently. Individuals who suspect, have witnessed, or have experienced inappropriate behavior by a User can report this, by any means, through email to firstname.lastname@example.org or via the online contact form.
