TAG Heuer condemns any Human Rights Violation and takes fully in consideration:
Prohibition of child labor: Work by children under the age of 16 is strictly prohibited, including, in particular, the Worst Forms of Child Labour as defined by ILO Convention No.182. In countries where local laws set a higher age for child labor or set at an age for completion of compulsory education higher than 16, the highest age is applicable. Any work that is likely to jeopardize children’s physical, mental or moral health, safety or morals should not be undertaken by anyone under the age of 18.
Prohibition of forced/compulsory labor: Any use of forced or compulsory labor as defined by ILO Convention No.29; slavery; servitude; or human trafficking; as well as coercion to perform work; wage withholding; compulsory overtime; withholding identity papers or work permits or requiring workers to deposit a bond or the use of any other constraint, is strictly prohibited. All workers are entitled to accept or leave their employment freely.
Prohibition of harassment and abuse: We treat our workers, contractors and the local communities in which we operate with respect and dignity. We do not tolerate or engage in any form of corporal punishment, physical, sexual, verbal or psychological harassment, torture, cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment, or any other kind of abuse.
Prohibition of discrimination: We treat all workers equally and fairly. We do not engage in any kind of discrimination – in particular with regards to wages, hiring, access to training, promotion, maternity protection and dismissal – based on sex, race or ethnic origin, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, political affiliation, union membership, nationality, gender identity, migrant status or social background.
Freedom of association: We respect and recognize the right of workers to negotiate collectively, and to create or join labor organizations of their choice without any sanction, discrimination or harassment.
