Every time EEMA Member companies interview potential candidates, specially the ones from other member companies, it is their responsibility to avoid questioning the candidate about:
Confidential client-agency relationships
Confidential agency information such as costs and other employees
No information or documentation brought by the candidate is perused or copied
No EEMA member can hire a candidate from a member company without a “Relieving Letter” that needs to furnished prior to joining. The letter must contain the last salary drawn and perks received by the employee. This procedure is successful in dissuading employees from furnishing false information during the interview process.
All EEMA members should abide by the rule that no unethically sourced information provided by an ex-employee of a member company is misused.
Failure to follow the Code of Conduct by any person, including the furnishing of incorrect/false details during interview should be immediately reported to EEMA. Prompt action will be taken against him/her and the person will then be blacklisted and reported to all member companies.
The list of blacklisted employees (based on the information shared by EEMA members) based on instances of fraud, financial irregularities (supported through documentary evidence). Such a case would be approved and considered by the EEMA Executive Committee before the information is reported to the EEMA member companies.
EEMA Member Company Employees
An employee of an EEMA Member Company must provide a minimum notice period of 1 month (for junior employees, below manager level) and 2 months (for senior employees, manager and above). It is at the discretion of the EEMA Member Company to waive the said notice period through a “Relieving Letter” that mentions the last salary and perks drawn by the employee.
An employee of an EEMA Member Company should not steal or leak any insider information or intellectual property of the following nature:
Any type of hard/soft data and information
Internal agency process documents
In a rare event when a employee of the EEMA Member Company wishes to take any such materials with them, he/she must be granted a written permission from their employer, otherwise it would be considered as the unethical procurement of company’s property.
Individuals from EEMA Member Companies who are seeking to leave their job and form a new company would not be provided EEMA membership for 12 months. However, this restriction can be waived through a “No Objection Letter” from the previous EEMA Member Employer.
