Employee Retention of BlueLinx Holdings - April 5th, 2011

BlueLinx Holdings NYSE: BXC is a Fortune 1000 company based in Atlanta, Georgia. It is the largest building products wholesaler in the country. History The distribution division of Georgia-Pacific Corporation began operations in 1954 with 13 warehouses utilized for the storage and distribution of Georgia-Pacific plywood. Over the next 40 years, the division quickly grew to over 130 warehouses nationwide, offering a wide range of products. In 1994, to build a better, more centralized distribution platform, the division consolidated its warehouses and created two large sales and operations centers in Denver, CO and Atlanta, GA. BlueLinx Today - A New Company is Born In May of 2004, Cerberus Capital Management, along with a team of senior leaders from the division, purchased the assets of the distribution division from Georgia-Pacific, forming the company you know today – BlueLinx Corporation.

Welcome to our employment section. Here you can view our current job openings and apply for positions online.

The Company's books and records must reflect a materially accurate and verifiable record of all transactions and the resulting amounts of Company assets and liabilities. Therefore, we must maintain complete and accurate records and files for all business transactions. You must follow the Company's general accounting procedures as well as all generally accepted accounting principles, laws and regulations related to accounting and financial reporting of transactions, estimates and forecasts. In addition, employees must provide timely, candid forecasts and assessments to management. Similarly, you must maintain sound processes and controls.

Reports or records should not be used to mislead those who receive them, or to conceal anything that is improper. Falsifying or altering records, or knowingly approving false records or reporting is prohibited. Further, employees have very limited discretion regarding the retention or destruction of Company records. The Company is required by law to retain certain records for various periods of time. Electronic records are to be treated the same as any other business records.

You must safeguard all physical, financial, informational and other Company assets. Preventing loss, misuse, damage or theft of the Company's assets is part of your job. All assets should be used only for the benefit of the Company. Except as specifically authorized, you may not use or take Company property or services for your or someone else's personal benefit.

In most jurisdictions, including the U.S., governmental regulations prohibit the Company, its employees and employees' immediate family from authorizing, giving or promising to give anything of value to a political party or public official to influence the government, party or official to act or refrain from acting in accordance with the Company's business interest. This can include a payment required to expedite routine administrative action. Further, the Company, its employees and directors are prohibited from giving money or other value to any agent, person or firm where there is reason to believe that the remuneration will be passed to the government, party or official in order to obtain influence or favors. Any violation of these regulations may result in criminal and/or civil penalties. Bribes, kickbacks, payoffs or other unusual or improper payments to obtain or keep business are unethical, illegal and strictly forbidden.

The Company's policies go beyond such laws and prohibits improper payments in all of our activities, both with governments and in the private sector. Specifically, the Company's employees and directors shall not offer anything of value to obtain an improper advantage in selling its services or representing the Company's interests to government authorities. To put it another way, employees and directors may not accept or offer payments, services or benefits that would not pass, without question, the test of full public disclosure.

If you are required, as part of your responsibilities and functions, to provide reasonable business entertainment to third parties in the conduct of international business, you should not receive or give anything of value, unless previously authorized by your immediate superiors. "Anything of value" includes both tangible benefits and intangible benefits. If you are uncertain of what could be perceived as valuable, be sure to verify this with your immediate superior.

Additionally, several countries regulate international trade transactions, such as imports, exports and international financial transactions. It is the Company's policy to follow all relevant international trade control regulations, including licensing, shipping documentation, import documentation, reporting and record retention. You should become familiar with and follow Company procedures related to international transactions.
