POLICY IN CHILD LABOR

Our child labor policy is our position on employing minors and aims to ensure that our company, its subsidiaries, and everyone we’re connected with follows the law and cares for children’s interests.

International, local, and federal child labor laws are stricter today than they were years ago. But millions of children are still forced to work in bad conditions all around the world, even in developed countries.

As an organization, we want to do business in a legal, ethical manner adding value to society and the environment instead of doing harm. Helping stop child labor is fundamental to us. We want to make sure that our organization doesn’t take part in children’s exploitation and also helps end it to the best of our ability.

Scope

This policy applies to our entire organization and those we do business or partner with including suppliers, vendors and contractors.

The International Labour Organization (ILO) and the U.N Convention on the Rights of the Child guide our policy on child labor. When it comes to legal aspects, we always:

  • Follow the stricter law if more than one laws apply (e.g. state and federal, local and international).
  • Require suppliers, partners, and vendors to follow the stricter applicable laws and recognize children’s rights. They must also require their own suppliers, subcontractors, and stakeholders to do the same.

In this policy, we refer to “children” as people who are younger than 18 years of age. “Young children” are people younger than 14.

“Child labor” refers to work that deprives children of their childhood and affects their schooling, their potential, and their dignity. It’s work that’s harmful to them mentally, physically, and socially.

Policy elements

When it comes to young children (younger than 14), we don’t want to stand in the way of their health, schooling, or free time. That’s why we don’t and won’t employ anyone younger than [15 years] of age and require our subsidiaries to do the same, regardless of the country they’re in.

We’re also committed not to do business with any organization that employs children younger than [15]. We’ll include this condition in every contract we sign and reserve the right to break the contract without penalty if our stakeholder violates this condition and refuses to agree on or follow through with an elimination plan.

Children’s welfare is everyone’s business

We want to grow and thrive as a business, but we’re also committed to doing good for the community we belong in. We ask all of our employees and partners to follow this policy, not just because we demand it as an organization, but because securing a bright future for children is everyone’s duty.
