California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010
Designs for Health and its affiliates are committed to the fair and ethical treatment of workers. To that end, we support the objectives of the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010, which seeks to eliminate slavery and human trafficking from product supply chains and requires companies to disclose their efforts to ensure that their supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking. We oppose slavery and human trafficking in all forms and expect our business partners to do the same. To advance these goals, we expect our suppliers to ensure that quality and safety standards are maintained throughout the supply chain by well treated, properly compensated workers in accordance with all applicable laws. Our current efforts include the following:
Verification: Our contract documentation requires suppliers to ensure that their activities and the activities of their suppliers comply with all applicable laws and regulations related to slavery and human trafficking.
Audits: We expect our suppliers to refrain from the direct or indirect use of slavery, forced labor or any forms of human trafficking and, where indicated, we will consider performing onsite audits of our suppliers with respect to their human trafficking and slavery practices.
Certification: Our contract documentation requires our suppliers to comply with laws regarding slavery, human trafficking, child labor, and wage and hour requirements in the country or countries in which they do business.
Internal Accountability: In the event we determine that an employee or supplier has violated a law regarding slavery and human trafficking, this would constitute grounds for termination of employment or the supply relationship.
Training: We are committed to training our employees that are directly responsible for supply chain management to identify risks within the supply chain of our products and we expect them to adhere to and certify that they will comply with our commitments.
