From time to time many of us are offered, or may provide, gifts, favours, benefits, hospitality, or entertainment in the course of our work. These are generally recognized as important parts of doing business.

Nevertheless, you should not accept any benefit that could in any way influence, or appear to influence, your ability to make objective business decisions. You should not offer gifts, favours, benefits or entertainment that might be perceived as inappropriately influencing another company's business dealing with Sun Life. Consider the following criteria when accepting or offering benefits:

  • Would doing so make it difficult to make a fair and unbiased decision?
  • Is the value involved nominal and reasonable? (Check local policies or supplementary codes or speak to your manager for guidance on what constitutes nominal in your business group as this can vary.)
  • Does this occur frequently?
  • Does the exchange create a sense of obligation on either party?
  • Would it embarrass Sun Life or the recipient if publicly disclosed?
  • Does it violate Sun Life anti-corruption policies or processes?

Before you offer business-related gifts or benefit to a government official or an officer or employee of a state- owned or controlled enterprise, consult with your business group general counsel or senior compliance officer.

Depending on your position at Sun Life you may also have an obligation to report or seek pre-approval of gifts and entertainment. Unless specifically provided under the terms of your employment or engagement, you may not receive a commission or other compensation related to the sale of any Sun Life product or service
