SUPPLIER CODE OF CONDUCT
We ensure that our suppliers always pursue excellence, and are constantly developing. Our suppliers deliver the highest level of personalized service – built on quality and trust.
Our Supplier(s) value these values:
Child labour: Valérie Barth Studio suppliers must not employ child labour. The term “child” means any person employed under the age of 15 (or 14 where the law of the country permits) or under the minimum age for employment in the country, whichever is greater.
Forced labour: Valérie Barth Studio suppliers must not use forced or compulsory labour of any kind, be it prison, bonded, indentured or otherwise. Furthermore, mandatory overtime is not permitted, and workers must be allowed to leave their employment after giving reasonable notice.
Child labour and illegal, abusive or forced labour have no place in our operations and the operations of our suppliers or other third-party vendors.
Human Rights: Valérie Barth Studio suppliers must treat their employees with respect and dignity. They must not engage in any kind of physical, verbal, psychological or sexual abuse or misconduct.
Hours: Valérie Barth Studio suppliers must uphold the local legal limit on hours worked, and where no limit is imposed, they must not engage workers for more than 60 hours a week at most – except in extraordinary circumstances. Workers must receive at least 2 days off each week.
Wages: Valérie Barth Studio suppliers must pay their employees the legal minimum wage or the prevailing industry wage (whichever is higher) as well as any legally prescribed benefits. Workers must not be subject to financial penalties for poor performance or face illegal deductions for benefits payments.
Anti-discrimination: Valérie Barth Studio suppliers must not subject their workers to any unfair or unjustified discrimination regarding hiring, remuneration, promotion or termination. Any employment decisions must be based on worker ability and not on personal characteristics such as race, colour, religion, gender, age, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, disability etc.
Valérie Barth Studio suppliers are expected to comply with the law in all circumstances. In cases where applicable law conflicts with the provisions of this policy, suppliers are expected to comply with the law, while seeking to meet the fundamental principles of this policy.
