Code of Ethics

We adhere to the Strict Code of Ethics of the National Association of Personnel Services which requires that:

  • A candidate’s employment record, education, qualification and salary requirements shall be stated to the employer/client as accurately and fully as possible. Clients shall be advised by the recruiter if the recruiter disclaims liability for the accuracy of any information it transmits to the client.
  • A candidate shall be referred to the employer/client for interview only with prior authorization of the employer/client, which may be given verbally.
  • Confidential information relating to the business policy of employer/clients, which is imparted as an aid to the effective handling of their job requirements, shall be treated accordingly.
  • In the absence of an agreement to the contrary, a recruiter shall not attempt to recruit candidates for placement who are still employed by the company with whom they have been placed by the recruiter’s firm, unless the candidates directly request the recruiter’s assistance in seeking new employment.


Summerfield Associates, Inc., has an on-going commitment to refer and hire the best people we can, based on their job-related qualifications. We actively recruit and refer candidates for all jobs without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, or any other classification protected by law.
