EMPLOYEE WORKLIFE INTRODUCTION As a strong, growing company, Zale Corporation offers exciting career opportunities in each of the Zale businesses and the corporate headquarters. Recognizing that satisfied and productive employees are the keystones to successful retailing, Zale Corporation makes every effort to provide smooth operations and an enjoyable work environment. These efforts begin with respectful treatment for each member of the Zale team and include certain policies and procedures. ZALE BUSINESS PRACTICES Code of Business Conduct and Ethics Zale’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics is based on its expectation that each employee can and will exercise sound and mature business judgment in all matters of business ethics. Some of the issues discussed in the Code include conflicts of interest, the confidentiality and proper disclosure of Zale corporate information, accuracy of financial records and reports, and compliance with all federal and state laws governing our business operations. Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics applies to all directors, officers and employees of Zale Corporation and its subsidiaries. This Code extends to relations between employees and their co- workers and to conduct between employees and their managers. In addition, the Code extends to dealings between Zale directors, officers and employees, as well as Zale’s trade vendors, other suppliers, customers and competitors. Zale encourages each employee to judge his or her conduct under the Zale Code of Business Conduct and Ethics with this common sense test: “If you would be embarrassed for your supervisor or co-workers to read about your conduct on the front page of tomorrow morning’s newspaper or if the conduct is potentially harmful to the Company … Don’t Do It.” Equal Opportunity Employment Zale Corporation practices and promotes a policy of non-discrimination, and is fully committed to the principles of equality in employment and opportunity for all employees. Zale Corporation will not, under any circumstances, condone or knowingly tolerate conduct that may constitute discrimination, any form of harassment including that of a sexual nature, intimidation, or retaliation in the work environment towards employees and customers. Zale does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, disability, creed, national origin, age, marital status, veteran status, sexual orientation, or any other protected category; nor does it discriminate on the basis of participation in a protected activity as defined by law. The Company applies these principles to all aspects of the employment relationship, including recruiting, hiring, training, working conditions, benefits and compensation, performance appraisals, promotions and transfers, discipline, layoffs, separation from service, and treatment on the job.
