Engaging in Lobbying & Political Activities

“There is no such thing as a minor lapse of integrity.”


    Corporate Political Activities

    Fluor participates in the political process in order to help governments better understand certain issues that are important to the company. However, there are stringent legal restrictions on what we can contribute to elected officials, members of their staff and political parties. For this reason, you may not give or offer company funds or other company assets (directly or indirectly) as any form of political contribution without pre-approval of the head of Government Relations. “Political contributions” are defined broadly and can even include buying tickets for or loaning corporate resources to a political fundraising event. Remember, a political contribution could also be construed as a bribe if it is given with the intent to improperly influence their activities.

    Keep in mind that you cannot use company time, property or equipment for your personal political activities.

    Employees who are U.S. citizens or legal residents of the United States may contribute voluntarily to Fluor’s Political Action Committee (PAC), which was established by our employees to make political contributions to organizations and campaigns that are viewed as being in the best interests of Fluor. No employee should ever feel pressured to contribute to Fluor’s PAC, and no executive, manager or employee should ever pressure another employee into contributing to it. It has no bearing on your compensation, promotional opportunities or continued employment with Fluor.

    Common Questions

      Company resources cannot be used for personal political activities. This includes the resources to express mail a personal check and the involvement of your assistant.

      No. You may never seek corporate reimbursement for political contributions or for expenses tied to political fundraising events. Before participating, you should consult Fluor’s head of Government Relations.

        In many countries, strict rules govern corporate lobbying activities. Lobbying requires disclosure to the government and covers many kinds of activities. In certain countries, lobbyists must be registered. You may be deemed to engage in lobbying if your work involves:

        building icon

        Contact with legislators, regulators, executive branch officials or their staff

        handshake icon

        Making or negotiating sales for government contracts

        scale icon

        Efforts to influence legislative or administrative action

        Common Questions

          You should inform the mayor that Fluor has an established practice for reviewing and approving corporate contributions and that the contribution decision is not yours. You should then report the request to the head of Government Relations for review.
