Not that I am aware of, and if any exist they were not communicated to me in writing. As far as I know the paragraph that I inserted is the only governing policy.
I have worked there for 1 year in March and my hope is to retain the current project team, including my wife, as I am convinced they have the right skills and experience and the appropriate track record. I have a long standing professional relationship with my wife dating back to the 90's as we are in allied media professions and have worked with her on many other projects in the past 20 years. This is the first time this has been an issue.
I'd be happy to stay if there is no disciplinary action, I don't want to stay in a diminished and weakened role after being disciplined for something I do not consider an offence. I'm more concerned about the impact on the project and it's outcome. If me leaving resolves the conflict of interest then so be it, but it would be best for the project if the current team remains intact, that's my primary concern. If we can agree there is no offence I'll stay, if not I'll move on. I am trying to ascertain if there is indeed an offence under the paragraph inserted. Anything pertaining to specific company policy can be argued that I was not aware of. The documents on the company intranet do not specifically cover this issue so my concern is have I broken the the UK Bribery Act 2010 and the United States of America Foreign Corrupt Practices Act 1977. Being in breach of unspecified policy is one thing, being in breach of actual law is another
Many thanks, ***** ***** my position clearly
