Central East LHIN Code of Conduct - posted December 31, 2010

The Central East LHIN Code of Conduct, which was developed by LHIN staff throughout 2010 and adopted by the LHIN's Board of Directors in November 2010, is intended to be a central guide and reference for all employees and the Board in support of day-to-day interactions and decision making, and to help employees and the Board work more effectively together. It is a tool for everyone to handle a variety of work situations some of which may be difficult such as managing workplace conflict, or coping with ethical dilemmas such as making decisions that ensure employees and Board members avoid a conflict-of-interest situation. 

“The Code of Conduct provides the standards of business conduct and ethics that are expected of every one of us, regardless of our position at the Central East LHIN.”

--Deborah Hammons,
Chief Executive Officer, Central East LHIN
