Sealed Air Corporation and its affiliates and subsidiaries ("Sealed Air") have an internal recruiting department. Sealed Air may supplement that internal capability from time to time with assistance from temporary staffing agencies, placement services, and professional recruiters ("Agency"). Agencies are hereby specifically directed NOT to contact Sealed Air employees, including Hiring Managers, directly in an attempt to present candidates – Sealed Air’s recruiting team or other authorized Sealed Air personnel must present ALL candidates to hiring managers.

To protect the interests of all parties, Sealed Air will not accept unsolicited resumes from any source other than directly from a candidate. Any unsolicited resumes sent to Sealed Air, including unsolicited resumes sent to a Sealed Air mailing address, fax machine or email address, directly to Sealed Air employees, or to Sealed Air's resume database will be considered Sealed Air property. Sealed Air will NOT pay a fee for any placement resulting from the receipt of an unsolicited resume—even those sent in response to a specific job posting. Sealed Air will consider any candidate for whom an Agency has submitted an unsolicited resume to have been referred by the Agency free of any charges or fees.

Agency must obtain advance written approval from Sealed Air's recruiting function to submit resumes, and then only in conjunction with a valid fully-executed contract for service and in response to a specific job opening. Sealed Air will not pay a fee to any Agency that does not have such agreement in place.

Agency agreements will only be valid if in writing and signed by an officer of Sealed Air or his or her designee. No other Sealed Air employee is authorized to bind Sealed Air to any agreement regarding the placement of candidates by Agencies. Sealed Air hereby specifically rejects, and denies any liability under, any agreement purporting to be accepted based on negative consent, negotiation with a candidate, performance, or any means other than the signature of a Sealed Air officer.
