Stand: 05.12.2019 2/3 HABERKORN CODE OF CONDUCT FOR SUPPLIERS 1. Laws, conventions, industry standards are complied with Our suppliers agree to comply with all applicable national laws and regulations as well as conventions and industry standards relating to business integrity, human rights, labour standards, environmental protection, work safety and health protection. The rules which constitute the most stringent require- ments are to be applied in each case. 2. No child labour is employed Our suppliers agree to abide by the UN rules on the rights of children. In particular, they agree to ad- here to the minimum age for employment and to prohibit exploitative child labour and/or to undertake measures to prevent it without delay. 3. There is no use of forced labour Nobody is employed against his/her will or forced to work. The use of forced, bonded or involuntary prison labour as well as any other physical or psychological compulsion to work is prohibited. 4. Inhumane treatment is prohibited All forms of physical abuse or discipline, deprivation of personal freedom, physical or psychological pu- nishment, threat of violence, sexual and other forms of harassment and verbal abuse as well as other forms of intimidation are prohibited. 5. No discrimination is practised Our suppliers recognise and respect the right of every individual to equal opportunity in all aspects of employment such as recruitment, compensation, access to education and training, promotion, termination of employment or retirement irrespective of his/her ethnic and social origin, nationality, religion, age, marital status, gender, sexual orientation, disability, political affiliation or trade union membership. 6. Freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining are respected Our suppliers recognise and respect the right of their employees to assemble, to set up a trade union of their choice and to engage in collective bargaining. Members of employee organisations or trade unions are neither disadvantaged nor given preferential treatment and have the right to exercise their function of representation in the workplace. In countries where the right of association and the right to collective bargaining are restricted by statutory provisions, the employer adopts an open stance to the development of equivalent means of facilitating free association and negotiation. 7. Working conditions are safe and hygienic Our suppliers agree to take all necessary steps within the framework of national regulations and industry standards to provide their employees with safe, healthy and hygienic working conditions (and – where appropriate – safe housing conditions). The appropriate preventive measures must be taken to prevent work-related accidents or work-related damage to health. Such measures include regular health and safety training for employees. Responsibility for work safety and health protection should reside with a representative of management. 8. Working hours are not excessive Our suppliers agree to ensure that working hours comply with the applicable national laws or industry standards, whichever affords greater protection. All overtime is to be performed on a voluntary basis, must not be excessive and is to be duly compensated.
