Assurant operates in a highly regulated environment. The Code applies to all countries where the company does business to the extent permissible by laws and regulations. Being aware of, and complying with, the laws and regulations under which we operate is not only a critical part of our business, but also fundamental to who we are. Remember that it is important to comply with not just the letter, but also the spirit and intent, of the law. Violating the law or engaging in unfair, deceptive and abusive acts or practices may weaken customer or general public confidence and put our reputation at risk, and can result in regulator criticism, legal action, fines and penalties, and other negative repercussions for Assurant.
If any portion of the Code or Assurant policies are inconsistent with any law and/or regulation, such law and/or regulation shall prevail. As an employee or director, you’re expected to know and comply with the laws and regulations that apply to you and, if you ever have questions, contact your Compliance Officer, the Ethics Office or a member of the People Organization for help. Violations of Assurant policy, this Code, or the law may result in appropriate disciplinary action, up to and including termination.
