“Forced labor and bonded labor must be forbidden. Employers may not retain original documents, wages or bonuses of the workers. In addition, the workers must be guaranteed the right to terminate the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory period of notice. Overtime shall be voluntary.“
An obligation in and of itself is not enough, of course. Therefore, all our producers are regularly monitored by independent auditors such as those from Fair Wear. This process involved carefully examining whether there were any cases of forced labor. This is verified through interviews inside and outside the production site.
The Fair Wear audits show that there were no complaints for this issue in 2020.
