Unum has our own internal code of conduct for all our employees. We ensure we conduct background checks for all staff, as well as training/certification so that our people understand their obligations. We are unfortunately unable to agree to individual supplier/vendor codes due to the volume of customers that we have, and because doing so could contradict our obligations under FCA and PRA regulations.
