Welcome to the Georgia Chapter of IEC
Directly Targeting the Hiring of Another IEC Member's Employees — Violation of IEC Code of Ethics
With business on the upswing, finding qualified employees becomes a greater challenge, but IEC would like to remind all members that directly targeting another IEC's member for hiring is a strict violation of the Code of Ethics (see item XI).
Unfortunately, the reason for bringing this to the attention of the membership is because we've had several instances of this brought to our attention. The owners of companies may realize this, but sometimes this message does not get out to the field managers. IEC highly recommends that all supervisors and personnel with recruitment and hiring authority understand and abide by the IEC Code of Ethics. Violation of the Code can have strict consequences, including revocation of membership with the IEC. The Code of Ethics is incorporated into IEC's Bylaws, therefore all members are bound by them.
