Suppliers must not use forced labour (slave, prison, indentured, bonded, or otherwise). Suppliers must not traffic workers. Suppliers must not exploit their workers by means of threat, force, coercion, abduction, or fraud. Working must be voluntary, and workers must be free to leave work and terminate their employment with reasonable notice. Involuntary labour includes the transportation, harboring, recruitment, transfer, receipt, or employment of persons by means of threat, force, coercion, abduction, fraud, or payments to any person having control over another person for the purpose of exploitation.
Workers shall not be required to pay recruitment, hiring, or other similar fees related to their employment and that shall be communicated to workers in their native language in advance of employment. If such fees are found to have been paid by workers, such fees shall be repaid to the worker. Supplier shall ensure that the third-party recruitment agencies it uses are compliant with the provisions of this Policy and the law.
Worker employment terms must be clear and understandable. Supplier shall ensure that workers’ contracts clearly convey the conditions of employment in a language understood by the workers.
Our suppliers must not require their workers to surrender government issued identification, passports, or work permits as a condition of working, and our suppliers may only temporarily hold onto such documents to the extent reasonably necessary to complete legitimate administrative and immigration processing.
Supplier shall not impose unreasonable restrictions on movement within their workplace or upon entering or exiting company-provided facilities.
Suppliers must ensure that labour sourcing or recruiting organisations also comply with these requirements.
