Confidentiality Provisions

Industry directors do not have access to confidential PEO information and are not involved in the accreditation of a PEO unless the PEO specifically requests a hearing before the full Board. All decisions related to the accreditation of PEOs are made by the Independent Directors in consultation with ESAC's advisors, all of whom have no personal or financial interest in any PEO. Participants have the right to request the recusal of any director with respect to any matter with which the director might have a conflict of interest. Board meetings are open to the public, except for executive sessions reserved for confidential accreditation matters.
