About the school's commitment to protecting workers' rights and the FLA Workplace Code of Conduct: The Johns Hopkins University is committed to conducting its business affairs in a fair and ethical manner. Once a business relationship has been established, the University expects an agreement's terms to be honored at all times. Should the University have reason to believe that a vendor has abrogated the terms of an agreement, action shall be taken to determine the facts of the matter. Should it be found that the terms of an agreement have been intentionally violated, a vendor shall be held responsible for its actions. An initial incident may result in a discussion with Supply Chain Shared Services personnel, and a vendor's representatives, including its sales manager. A second incident could result in the University temporarily suspending the conduct of business with a vendor. A third incident will result in the University permanently ceasing the conduct of business with a vendor.
