MEDNAX NATIONAL MEDICAL GROUP: POLICY ON FORCED LABOR, HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND MODERN SLAVERY

Mednax® Inc., prohibits the use of all forms of forced labor, including prison labor, indentured labor, bonded labor, military labor, modern forms of slavery and any form of human trafficking.

Mednax takes seriously its responsibility to prevent and prohibit the practice of human trafficking. As such, Mednax has adopted this policy against human trafficking. This policy applies to all Mednax employees, agents, contractors, suppliers and subcontractors.

Employees are prohibited from engaging in any behavior related to the trafficking of persons. Prohibited behavior includes but is not limited to: (1) Engaging in any form of trafficking in persons, which include sex trafficking and any recruiting or obtaining of workers through the use of force, fraud, coercion and involuntary servitude or slavery; (2) Procuring commercial sex acts; (3) Using forced labor in company business or in the performance of a contract; (4) Withholding or destroying employee identification or immigration documents; (5) Using fraudulent tactics in recruiting workers, or using recruiters who use such fraudulent tactics; (6) Charging employees recruitment fees; (7) Failing to provide, in certain circumstances, return transportation at the end of employment; or (8) Providing employees with substandard housing.

Employees who become aware of activity that may involve human trafficking are required to notify a supervisor or human resources personnel of the activity as soon as possible after learning of it. A person who reports possible violations under this policy, in good faith, will not be retaliated against in any manner.

In our supplier code of conduct, Mednax requires suppliers to comply with the company’s published policies and procedures, as well as all applicable laws, codes or regulations of the countries, states and localities in which they operate. This includes Mednax’s policy on forced labor, human trafficking and modern slavery, as well as (but not limited to) all laws and regulations relating to environmental, occupational health and safety and labor practices. Mednax suppliers are further required to expect their suppliers (including temporary labor agencies or other third parties) to do the same.

If Mednax becomes aware of possible activities involving human trafficking by an employee, subcontractor, employee of a subcontractor or supplier, it will investigate promptly and take corrective action.

Employee violations of this policy will result in appropriate corrective action, which may include immediate termination.
