Only the Board of Directors, or a designated committee of independent directors, may grant waivers from the provisions of this Code involving an executive officer, financial executive or director. Granting of any such waiver shall be promptly disclosed to shareholders and otherwise disclosed as required by law. Any other employee may request a Code waiver from his or her immediate supervisor, and such waivers shall only be acquired with the advance approval of Jabil's General Counsel. In general, the granting of waivers is discouraged.
