Social Buying Conditions

 Equal Employment Opportunity/ Non-discrimination

At ANYSEW we believe that all terms and conditions of employments should be based on an individual’s ability to do the job and not on the basis of personal characteristics or beliefs.  We provide employees with a working environment free of discrimination, harassment, intimidation or coercion relating directly or indirectly to race, religion, sexual orientation, political opinion or disability.  We do not interfere with individual rights to observe tenants or practices, e.g. religious beliefs.

No Forced Labour

We do not use any prison, slave, indentured, or forced labour in the manufacturer of any of our products.  This means also that personnel shall not have to lodge “deposits” or identity papers with the company upon commencing employment.
 

No Child Labour

We do not utilise child labour in the production of any product.  We do not employ any person under the age of 16 (or where local law is set at 14 years, the lower age will apply), or the age, at which compulsory schooling has ended, whichever is greater

Hours of Labour

We maintain reasonable employee work hours based on the limits on regular and overtime hours allowed by local law, or where local law does not limit the hours of work, the regular work week.  Overtime, when necessary, is fully compensated according to local law, or at a rate at least equal to the regular hourly compensation rate if there is not legally prescribed premium rate.  Employees are permitted reasonable days off (at least one day off in every seven day period) and leave privileges.

No Coercion and Harassment

AYSEW acknowledges the value of our staff and treat each employee with dignity and respect.  We do not use cruel and unusual disciplinary practices such as threats or violence or other forms of physical punishment, sexual, psychological or verbal harassment or abuse

Fair Compensation

We fairly compensate our employees by complying with all applicable laws, including minimum wage laws or the prevailing local industry wage, whichever is higher and shall always be sufficient to meet basic needs of personnel and to provide some discretionary income.

 

Health & Safety

We maintain a safe, clean and healthy environment in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.  We provide adequate medical facilities, clean restrooms, and reasonable access to portable water, well-lit and ventilated workstations and protection from hazardous materials or conditions.  All facilities are provided with a maximum protection and safety measures, which do include fire protection, emergency exits and access to first aid supplies. The laws on health & Safety in each country are strictly respected and met, if not exceeded. The same standards of health and safety are applied in any housing we provide to our employees.

Freedom of Association

ANYSEW respects the right of all personnel to form and join trade union of their choice and bargain collectively.  Where the fight of freedom of association and collective bargaining are restricted under law, we facilitate parallel means of independent and free association and bargaining for all such personnel.  We ensure that representatives of such personnel are not the subjects of discrimination
