Company Policies and Procedures

Legato Supplier Code of Conduct

Legato’s success is built on a commitment to our core values and behaviors that include being:

Our customers, stakeholders and regulators expect that we will conduct business with integrity and provide a quality product. In turn, we expect the same of our Suppliers.

Legato understands that our Suppliers are independent entities; however, the business practices of our Suppliers may impact and/or reflect upon Legato. It is for this reason that Legato expects all Suppliers, their employees, agents and subcontractors (hereinafter referred to collectively as “Supplier”) to adhere to the Legato Supplier Code of Conduct while conducting business with or on behalf of Legato. The Legato Supplier Code of Conduct establishes minimum standards for conducting business with Legato and to the extent of any conflict between this Supplier Code of Conduct and any other transactional document entered into by Legato and Supplier, the latter shall control.

WORKPLACE STANDARDS AND PRACTICES

Suppliers will operate their facilities and conduct employment practices in an ethical manner and meet the requirements required by law in all locations in which they operate. This includes, but is not limited to, laws and regulations relating to health and safety, labor, compensation, work hours, and the environment. Following are Legato-specific guidelines for some of these matters applicable to Supplier:
