The Direct Selling Association is the national trade association for companies that operate in the direct selling industry. The DSA has established a Code of Ethics, which holds members accountable to the highest ethical business standards for the direct selling channel. As a member of the DSA, Univera abides by the code and we encourage Associates to as well. How knowledgeable are you about the DSA Code of Ethics? Take the quiz to find out!
It also states that Univera must provide periodic accounts including information such as sales, purchases, commissions, and bonuses. This is done in the form of the reports on your Dashboard at www.univera.com and in your monthly commission statement. See Code Section A(1)(g)
More specifically, Univera and its Associates shall not misrepresent the actual or potential sales or earnings of its independent salespeople. Any earnings or representations shall be based on documented facts. See Code Section A(8)
