ABAâ€™s Employee Code of Conduct Company Policy outlines our expectations regarding employeesâ€™ behavior towards their colleagues, supervisors and overall organization.
We encourage freedom of expression and open communication. Having said that, we expect all our employees to strictly follow our â€œcode of conductâ€. Our employees should avoid offending, participating in serious disputes and disrupting our workplace. We expect them to behave in a professional manner to reflect the name of the company they carry.
This policy applies to all our employees regardless of their contract of employment or rank.
Our employees are bound by their contract of employment to follow our Employee Code of Conduct while performing their duties. We outline the components of our Code of Conduct below:
Compliance with the KSA law
All employees must protect our companyâ€™s legality. They should comply with all environmental, safety and fair dealing laws. We expect employees to be ethical and responsible when dealing with our companyâ€™s finances, products, partnerships and public image. All employees must abide by the KSA law while working at ABA.
Respect in the workplace
All employees should respect their colleagues. We wonâ€™t allow any kind of discriminatory behavior, harassment or victimization. Employees should conform with our equal opportunity policy in all aspects of their work, from recruitment and performance evaluation to interpersonal relations.
Protection of Company Property
All employees should treat our companyâ€™s property, whether material or intangible, with respect and care.
- Shouldnâ€™t misuse company equipment or use it for personal purposes.
- Should respect all kinds of incorporeal property. This includes trademarks, copyright and other property (information, reports etc.) Employees should use them only to complete their job duties.

All employees should fulfill their job duties with integrity and respect toward customers, vendors, stakeholders and the community. Supervisors and managers mustnâ€™t abuse their authority. We expect them to fairly delegate duties to their team members taking into account their competences and workload. Likewise, we expect team members to follow team leadersâ€™ instructions and complete their duties with skill and in a timely manner.

Employees should follow their schedules. We can make exceptions for occasions that prevent employees from following standard working hours or days. But, generally, we expect employees to be punctual when coming to and leaving from work.

We expect employees to not abuse their employment benefits. This can refer to time off, insurance, facilities, subscriptions or other benefits our company offers.
- Memos from HR
All employees should read and follow any memos from HR.. If they have any questions, they should ask their managers or Human Resources (HR) department.
Our company may have to take disciplinary action against employees who repeatedly or intentionally fail to follow our code of conduct. Disciplinary actions will vary depending on the violation.
Possible consequences include:
- Warning letters.
- Second warning letters.
- Suspension or termination for more serious offenses.
