CODE OF ETHICS / CODE OF CONDUCT
Men On The Job™ (“MOJ”) and Women On The Job™ (“WOJ”) BUSINESSES; Alike yet Different.
It is hoped that readers of this code of ethics will understand that the following can only be understood completely by realizing that Men On The Job™ and Women On The Job™ ARE ONE! The same understanding will apply to all future related subsidiaries, affiliates, divisions, services and products.
There is no need to address the similarities and differences of each and every MOJ and WOJ Business. The purpose here is to make it clear that, regardless of the name or nature of each Business, the MOJ and WOJ code of ethics/conduct uniformly promotes the highest ethical conduct by all MOJ and WOJ Partner/Members & Associates.
MOJ and WOJ businesses have much in common with each other, yet are distinctly different in terms of their products, services and markets.
They are alike because all Partner/Members & Associates have their Men On The Job™ and Women On The Job™ Partner/Member/Associate memberships in common. In many cases, this code of ethics/conduct bridges or combines “Business” ethics, relating to the ethical responsibilities of Men On The Job™ and Women On The Job™, with the personal ethics and conduct of the individual. MOJ and WOJ strives in this way, to assure the integrity of all Partner/Members & Associates.
The following may be considered either a "CODE OF ETHICS" or a "CODE OF CONDUCT" or both. No prior "Model" for MenOnTheJob.com™ and WomenOnTheJob.com™ exists. Men On The Job™ (“MOJ”) and Women On The Job™ (“WOJ”), are not corporations and do not completely resemble any other known business model and are, therefore, unique. Men On The Job.com™ and Women On The Job.com™ are a Global Multidimensional Club, a professional networking services association of independent Partner/Members!
What follows is the formulation of a code of ethics and conduct that relates to traditional business practices combined with many that are unique only to Men On The Job™ (“MOJ”) and Women On The Job™ (“WOJ”) Partner/Members and Businesses.
Men On The Job™ and Women On The Job™ Partner/ Members and Associates conduct their businesses with INTEGRITY, CREDIBILTY AND THE DESIRE TO SUCCEED WITHOUT MISLEADING THE CONSUMER. They are committed to providing a positive, constructive and action-oriented environment that supports diversity in individuals and their talents, thoughts, and perspectives.
PERSONAL LOYALTY is fundamental to the mutually beneficial business relationships we form with members of our communities! It is the very foundation of Men On The Job™ and Women On The Job™. Loyalty and Teamwork are critical to our continued success. Members must make a personal commitment to follow this code – both in letter and in spirit! If you cannot be loyal, please do not seek membership. This is not a job, but a journey - WE WORK, SURVIVE, AND FINANCIALLY PROSPER…..TOGETHER! Loyalty Rules!
Where the words Men On The Job™ and Women On The Job™ are used in this Code and Preamble, it shall be deemed to include Men On The Job™ and Women On The Job™ Partner/Members & Associates regardless of the name of the businesses they operate. While our Code of Ethics and Business Conduct establishes obligations that may be higher than those mandated by law, in any instance where the Code and the law conflict, the obligations of the law must take precedence.
Men On The Job™ and Women On The Job™ Code of Ethics cannot describe every business practice or principle related to honest and ethical conduct. It provides a framework to MOJ and WOJ Partner/ Members and others who may be associated with a Partner/Member or Members. Since each Partner/Member is an independent operator of his/her own home-based business or businesses, it is the Partner/Member’s sole responsibility to conduct business as a MOJ and WOJ Partner/Member with honesty, integrity and lawfully and stand committed to sound ethical business practices through self-regulation.
The most valuable assets of Men On The Job™ (“MOJ”) and Women On The Job™ (“WOJ”) are its Membership of Independent Partner/Members and Associates. The intellectual property, trade secrets, trademarks, service marks, copyrights, and "Confidential information" is vital to the success of MOJ and WOJ. The technical information, both oral and written about MOJ and WOJ, its Partner/Members, products, clients, or customers is proprietary, secret, or confidential, or not known to the public or our competitors which provides MOJ and WOJ with a competitive advantage.
"MOJ and WOJ" is synonymous with competency, fairness and high integrity resulting from adherence to the ageless standard expressed by THE GOLDEN RULE; “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. By sharing the following with the reader, it is MOJ and WOJ hope that the nature of the relationship between MOJ and WOJ and the Partner/Members and Associates can only be understood as completely interdependent and inseparable.
"Partner/Members and Associates" abide by the MOJ and WOJ "Honor System”, the Cornerstone of Men On The Job™ and Women On The Job™. Mature judgment and personal integrity are qualities all Partner/Members & Associates must possess and employ. An Honor Council has been appointed to deal with issues arising when the conduct of a Partner/Member/Associate is questioned. Inappropriate conduct is never tolerated and can result in termination of a Partner/Members & Associates Membership.
STATEMENT OF POLICY AND DEFINITION OF TERMS
The Men On The Job™ and Women On The Job Code of Ethics sets forth a comprehensive overview of our business philosophy and practices and is presented on our Web Site as a statement of policy for the public at large. However, contained herein are policies and practices, terms and definitions that specifically pertain to the daily conduct of Partner/Members. The policies and terms presented below are standards which must be maintained by all who are associated with Men On The Job™ and Women On The Job™!
THE HONOR SYSTEM “The Cornerstone of Men On The Job™ and Women On The Job™”. The honor system is the highest expression of trust.

Mature judgment and personal integrity are qualities all Partner/Members must possess and employ. The nature of the extraordinary freedom, granted to a Partner/Member by MOJ and WOJ, to operate an independent, home based business, should not be misinterpreted as permission to operate outside the guidelines set forth by Men On The Job™ and Women On The Job™. Partner/Members must view the guidelines as a formula for success rather than a list of restrictive rules. The honor system, when respected, earns and maintains the respect of the public and, most importantly, those with whom Partner/Members & Associates conduct business.
THE HONOR COUNCIL

II. CONDUCT RELATING TO THE DISCHARGE OF DUTIES TO MEN ON THE JOB AND WOMEN ON THE JOB AND OTHER PARTNER MEMBERS.
