Hi,

''The company held as one of its principle tenets that employees would never be required to work overtime without pay.''

Is ''principle tenets'' correct? It seems to me that the two are synonyms, are they not?
My guess is (yes, I have one of those almost every time when I have a question! :-)) that it should read ''principal tenets''.

Thanks
