Strengthening Employee Ethical Behavior
Internationally, a fiduciary duty refers to the highest standard of care imposed through equity or law. Expected behavior of a fiduciary is loyalty to the person or group (principal) owed a duty. Consequently, managers must not place their affairs before the obligation and must not benefit from their status as a fiduciary, unless the principal consents. Specifically, managers should avoid engaging in activities where personal interests and fiduciary duty conflict; as well as situations where their fiduciary duty conflict with another fiduciary duty. Furthermore, a fiduciary should not seek personal benefit from their fiduciary position without express principal knowledge and consent.
