[R] cor() function, method="spearman"

Does anyone know if the cor function, when method = "spearman", returns a correlation coefficient corrected for any ties in the ranks of the data? I have data with quite a few ties and am thinking that I should use a calculation of the coefficient corrected for ties, but before I try and code this calculation myself, I thought I should check whether or not cor() automatically does this.

Thank you!
