Ethics Policy


Unity Bancorp, Inc., Unity Bank (collectively, "Unity") regards the working relationship with customers, clients and other organizations as paramount and equally regards the integrity demonstrated by all directors, officers and employees as indispensable to that effective relationship.

Unity Bank Core Values Test in situations where you are uncertain what to do, ask yourself these questions:

  1. Is the action legal?
  2. Does it comply with our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and related policies?
  3. Does it reflect our Core Values (Unity Bank Commandments)?
  4. Would I be comfortable if my friends and family knew about it?
  5. Would it be OK if other employees did it?
  6. Would it keep Unity Bank and our shareholders from experiencing loss, harm, or unnecessary risk?
  7. Does it feel like the right thing to do?
  8. If you answered “no” to any of these questions, don’t do it.

The general rule of thumb to follow is: If you know it’s wrong, don’t do it. If you’re not sure, ask yourself the questions above. If you still are unsure on what to do, speak with your supervisor or the Human Resources Director. Keep asking until you have clarity on following the right path.

Anyone who works for, with or on behalf of Unity Bank has the responsibility to demonstrate the highest standards of business conduct. This Code of Business Conduct & Ethics applies to all officers, directors, employees and contractors of Unity Bank, our subsidiaries and our affiliates. Anyone who violates the spirit or letter of the Code may face disciplinary action, up to and including termination.

Therefore, it is the policy of Unity that all directors, officers and employees observe and comply with the following:

Corporate Statement 

A financial institution’s activities are affected by laws and regulations, as well as its responsibilities to its shareholders, clients, employees, and the community in which it serves.  The Unity Bank Ethics Policy provides the avenue for ensuring that the conduct of its employees is consistent with the institution’s corporate responsibilities.

The Unity Bank Ethics Policy embodies not only legal and regulatory requirements, but also the standards by which our employees must conduct themselves.

Conflict of Interest

A financial institution’s reputation for integrity is its most valuable asset and is directly affected by the conduct of its Employees, Officers and Directors (collectively hereinafter referred to as “Employees”).  For this reason, Employees must not use their position for private gain, to advance personal interests, or to obtain favors or benefits for themselves, members of their families, or any other individuals, corporations, or business entities.

A basic premise of the Unity Bank Ethics Policy is that each Employee represents Unity Bank and is obligated to act in Unity Bank’s best interest, and in the best interests of its clients and stockholders, without regard to the employee’s personal or financial interest or activities.  Employees are expected to recognize and avoid those situations where personal or financial interest or relationships might influence or appear to influence the Employee’s judgment on matters affecting our institution.

Employees should understand that a conflict of interest, or the appearance of a conflict of interest, may arise when there is a mere opportunity for conflict to occur.  Although Employees may not intend to create a conflict of interest, they should manage their affairs to avoid even the appearance of such a conflict.  If an employee has any doubt about a certain situation, the employee should contact his/her manager to discuss immediately.

Confidential Information

The unauthorized use or release of confidential information during or after employment with Unity Bank is a breach of the Unity Bank Ethics Policy. Confidential information with respect to Unity Bank, its clients, prospective clients, suppliers, shareholders, and employees acquired in the course of business is to be used solely for corporate purposes and never to be discussed with or divulged to unauthorized people. The need for confidentiality extends to everyone, including family, friends, and acquaintances.

Clients, suppliers, shareholders, and employees expect Unity Bank and its employees to always keep information regarding their personal and business affairs in strict confidence. Examples of confidential information include the following: clients', suppliers', shareholders' or employees' business relationships, loans, accounts, balances, credit ratings, experiences, or any other transaction with Unity Bank. Other examples of confidential information include, but are not limited to corporate policies, objectives, goals, and strategies; lists of clients, clients or vendors; employee records; and other materials such as graphs, memoranda, documents, manuals, reports, records, software or hardware for use in computer or word processing equipment, training materials, bulletins, and similar originals or copies of records whether or not you have contributed to their creation. When an Employee leaves Unity Bank, the Employee may not retain any confidential information in physical form. 

Confidential information available to one affiliate or department of Unity Bank should only be communicated to other affiliates or departments when there is a legitimate business need to know.
Misuse of confidential information will not only constitute a violation of this Code of Ethics, it may also constitute a violation of state and Federal law.  

Financial Accountability & Internal Controls 

Unity Bank has numerous internal control policies and procedures.  Unity Bank expects all employees to be familiar with and operate within established internal controls.  Unity Bank's internal and external auditors periodically audit internal control policies, procedures, and compliance to assess the sufficiency of these controls.  All employees involved in these periodic assessments shall provide accurate information and shall complete the internal control certifications in a timely manner.

Integrity of Accounting & Financial Information 

Unity Bank maintains the highest standards in preparing the accounting and financial information disclosed to the public. There should never be issued any information that is false, misleading, incomplete or would lead to mistrust by the public, our clients, or our stockholders. All accounting records shall be compiled accurately, with the appropriate accounting entries properly classified when entered on the books.

No payments on behalf of Unity Bank shall be approved or any transaction made with the intention or understanding that part or all of such payment will be used for any purpose other than that described by the documents supporting it. No fund, asset, or liability of Unity Bank shall, under any circumstances or for any purpose, be concealed or used for an unlawful or improper purpose.

Money Laundering & Transaction Structuring 

Unity Bank may unknowingly be used to launder money derived from criminal activity. The intention behind these types of transactions is to hide ownership of the funds from the government.  Unity Bank makes every effort to resist being associated with money laundering or any other type of criminal activity.

Any employee who knowingly and willfully launders money or attempts to or assists someone in laundering money is subject to substantial fines or imprisonment or both. Also, in accordance with the Bank Secrecy Act (“BSA”), any employee who willfully structures a transaction, or attempts or assists someone in structuring a transaction to avoid the currency reporting requirements of BSA is subject to substantial fines and up to twenty years imprisonment. 

Unity Bank employees are prohibited from engaging in money laundering and/or transaction structuring.  All employees are required to immediately report all attempts to launder money, structure a transaction and/or all suspicious activities.

Embezzlement, Theft, And Misapplication of Funds

Unity Bank holds each employee responsible for maintaining accurate and complete records.  Anyone who embezzles, steals, or willfully misappropriates any monies, funds, or credits of Unity Bank is subject to fine or imprisonment or both.

Things Offered to Employees

It is a federal crime for any Officer, Director, Employee, agent or attorney of Unity Bank to corruptly solicit, demand or accept for the benefit of any person anything of value from anyone in return for any business, service or confidential information of Unity Bank, intending to be influenced or rewarded, either before or after a transaction is discussed or consummated. Although all transactions and businesses are covered, some examples include extensions of credit, underwriting transactions, investment advice, trust matters, checking accounts and purchases from suppliers. Any person who improperly offers or promises something of value under these circumstances is guilty of the same offense.  Substantial criminal penalties can result from non-compliance.

It is not uncommon for bankers to have close social or family ties with some of those with whom they do business. Things of value exchanged between a Unity Bank Employee and family members, or social friends are not covered by this Unity Bank Ethics Policy if they are exchanged solely because of the family or social relationship and not in connection with a bank transaction or bank business. However, the exchange of things of value that may create the appearance of a conflict of interest should be avoided.

Although acceptance of things of value in connection with bank business is generally prohibited, the Bank has adopted a reasonableness standard relating to accepting items of value.  Simply defined, Employees, Officers, and Directors may only accept a gift or other thing of value if a reasonably prudent person who exercised an average degree of care, skill, and judgment, under the same circumstances, with similar knowledge of the facts, would have made the same decision.  Alternatively, ask the question whether accepting the thing of value is “reasonable” given the facts and circumstances.

For example, an Employee may accept meals, refreshments, travel arrangements or accommodation, or entertainment, all of reasonable value, in the course of a meeting or other occasion the purpose of which is to hold bona fide business discussions or to foster better business relations, provided the benefit would be paid for by Unity Bank as a reasonable expense if not paid for by another party; examples include, but are not limited to advertising or promotional material of nominal value, such as pens, pencils, note pads, key chains, calendars and similar items; discounts or rebates on merchandise or services that do not exceed those available to other clients; gifts of modest value that are related to commonly recognized events or occasions, such as a promotion, new job, wedding, retirement, Christmas, bas or bar mitzvah; civic, charitable, educational or religious organizational awards for recognition of service and accomplishment.

However, an Employee may not receive things of value for purely personal benefit, or for the personal benefit of anyone else, which serve no demonstrable business purpose.  Gifts of cash or cash equivalent, such as gift cards, in any amount are expressly prohibited.  Furthermore, an Employee may not accept a discount from a Bank customer or vendor that is not available to the public.  On a case-by-case basis, Unity Bank may approve other circumstances, not described herein, in which Employees may accept something of value in connection with Unity Bank business. Approval may be given by Executive Management, after consultation with legal counsel, in writing based on a full written disclosure of all relevant facts submitted by the employee, providing compliance with federal law. 

Whenever any situation arises about matters concerning things of value, Employees must make full disclosure to Unity Bank management and receive management's written response. Permanent files must be maintained of all disclosures and responses.

Things Offered by Employees

Employees may not, on behalf of Unity Bank in connection with any transaction or business of Unity Bank, directly or indirectly give, offer, or promise anything of value to any individual, business entity, organization, governmental unit, public official, political party, or any other person to influence the actions of the recipient. This standard of conduct is not intended to prohibit normal business practices such as providing meals, entertainment, tickets to cultural and sporting events, promotional gifts, favors, discounts, price concessions, gifts given as token of friendship or special occasions (such as Christmas), so long as they are of nominal and reasonable value under the circumstances and promote Unity Bank's legitimate business interests, and are not designed to provide a quid pro quo for granting business to Unity Bank.

Outside Activities

Employees' activities must not interfere or conflict with the interests of Unity Bank. Acceptance of outside employment, outside speaking engagements, election to the Board of Directors of other organizations, representation of Unity Bank clients in dealings with Unity Bank, and participation in activities on behalf of outside organizations or in political activities represent potential conflicts of interest.

Appropriate gainful employment outside the Unity Bank system is permissible but discouraged. Employees should not engage in outside employment that interferes with the time and attention that must be devoted to their duties at Unity Bank or adversely affects the quality of the work they perform.

Outside employment should not compete or conflict with the activities of Unity Bank; involve any use of company equipment, supplies, or facilities; imply Unity Bank's sponsorship or support; or adversely affect Unity Bank’s reputation. Employees must disclose any existing outside employment to Executive Management who may disapprove due to time considerations and/or conflict(s) of interest.

Unity Bank encourages Employees to participate in worthwhile civic, social, educational, and charitable organizations and activities. However, employees must not act without Executive Management approval in the following capacities: any signing capacity on any account of another, except a family member, held in Unity Bank; an official of any organization, except for social, religious, philanthropic or civic organization, colleges or schools, neighborhood associations, clubs within Unity Bank or trade or professional organizations associated with banking or business.

The Bank recognizes that social media is an increasingly common communication tool.  Employees must consider how their personal use of social media reflects upon the Bank.  Public comments disparaging the Bank, revealing trade secrets or confidential information is strictly prohibited.  Employees must not conduct Unity Bank business transactions through any social media platform.  Employees may express their personal opinions, but never represent themselves as a spokesperson for the Bank in any way.  Employees must also refrain from using social media while on work time or equipment unless it is work-related as authorized by a Manager.

Sound Personal Finances

  • The way Employees manage their personal finances can affect on-the-job performance and Unity Bank's image in the community. Therefore, Employees must avoid any circumstances that may lead to over extension of credit or salary attachments or drawing checks against insufficient funds or other financially embarrassing situations.  Deposit Services monitors all Employee overdrafts and notifies an Employee’s manager when they occur.  Employees are then counseled on the importance of avoiding future overdrafts.
  • Continued misuse of a Unity Bank deposit account by an Employee may lead to disciplinary action, including termination of employment.
  • Employees and their families should borrow only from financial institutions that regularly lend money. Borrowing may be done only on a normal basis with no favored treatment. 
  • Employees and their families may not borrow from clients and suppliers except those who engage in lending in the usual course of their business and then only on terms customarily offered to others under similar circumstances without special concessions as to interest rate, terms, security, repayment terms and penalties.

Requirements to Report Violations

If an Employee believes he/she will be in violation of this Unity Bank Ethics Policy and/or other  activity that violates law, regulation or Unity Bank policy, or business abuses, or if an Employee has suspicions of others involved in the same, the situation must be reported immediately to one's manager, Human Resources Director, Compliance Officer, Chairman of the Audit Committee of the Board, or another officer of Unity Bank, or by use of the Bank’s reporting hotline discussed below.  Failure to report is a violation of this Policy and can lead to disciplinary action against the person who failed to report the violation, which may be as severe as the disciplinary action against the person who committed the original violation.

Whenever possible, you are encouraged to raise questions and concerns directly with your manager, or someone in your department’s reporting line with whom you feel comfortable talking. In many cases, your manager can resolve issues, or help guide you through the appropriate process. If you are not comfortable doing so, the following resources are also available to you:  

  • Human Resources Director
  • LIGHTHOUSE Anonymous Reporting Hotline at 800-401-8004                                (
  • Chairperson of the Audit Committee

The identity of the person who reports a possible violation of this Code by another will be kept confidential to the extent possible. However, circumstances may exist that require Unity Bank to disclose the name of a  person who reports a possible violation.  Possible violations may be reported orally or in writing and may be reported anonymously.
Unity Bank has a zero-tolerance policy for intimidation or retaliation against individuals who make good-faith reports of known or suspected violations of this Code, any Unity Bank policy or procedure, or any law or regulation.


Every employee will be required to sign a statement that he or she has read this Unity Bank Ethics Policy and understands it provisions and agrees to abide by them. Employees will be required to provide an annual acknowledgment.

Unity Bank Ethics Policy Violations

Any employee who violates any section of this Unity Bank Ethics Policy is subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination.


The Bank investigates every concern that employees report through any channel. Every report of a violation is taken seriously. You are required to cooperate fully with any authorized internal or external investigation, including, but not limited to, those involving ethical issues, legal or regulatory issues, or policy violations. You should never withhold, tamper with, or fail to communicate relevant information in connection with any investigation. Making false statements may be grounds for immediate termination. If the investigation determines a violation has occurred, prompt corrective action will be taken, up to and including termination.

Matters Not Covered by This Statement

The Bank recognizes that it is impossible to define every practice that could constitute an objectionable conflict.  The omission of any specific policy of limitation or prohibition noted above, however, shall not be regarded as approval of practices or conditions not specifically covered, and the Board of Directors will take appropriate action to prevent and eliminate conflicts when circumstances so warrant.
