Standards for Contractors and Suppliers

 
 
Stuart Weitzman Holdings, LLC ("Stuart Weitzman") is committed to legal compliance and ethical business practices in all of our operations worldwide. We choose contractors and suppliers who we believe share that commitment. We require our contractors and suppliers to comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country, or countries, in which they are conducting business.   Our standards are summarized as follows. As used in these Standards, the term "contractors and suppliers" includes, but is not limited to, factories, agents, vendors and suppliers of component parts.
 
Labor
A.     Child Labor
Contractors and suppliers shall not use child labor, defined as workers under the age of 14, or if older than 14, the age of compulsory education if the country of manufacture requires compulsory education beyond 14 years of age.
 
B.     Forced Labor
Our contractors and suppliers shall not use any form of forced, coerced, trafficked,  compulsory, bonded, indentured or prison labor, and shall not purchase materials from suppliers using any such labor.
 
C.     Migrant Labor
Contractors and suppliers that recruit or employ foreign contract workers shall ensure that these workers are treated fairly and on an equal basis with the local workforce. Workers shall not be charged any fees, costs or deposits for recruitment, travel or processing official documents and work visas, and if such fees are paid by the workers, the contractor or supplier shall reimburse them promptly.
 
Migrant workers shall be provided with their employment contract prior to deployment. The use of supplemental agreements and the practice of contract substitution (the replacement of an original contract or any of its provisions with those less favorable to the worker) are strictly prohibited. Contractors and suppliers shall ensure that all original travel and identification documents remain with the workers, and that workers have secure individual storage to safely maintain those documents during the time of their employment. 
 
Wages/Benefits
Employees shall be compensated for all hours worked, at rates that meet the national minimum standards or local industry standards, whichever is higher.

Freedom of Association
Employees shall be free to join organizations of their own choice. Employees shall not be subject to intimidation or harassment in the exercise of their right to join (or to refrain from joining) any organization. Where the right to freedom of association and collective bargaining is restricted under law, the employer should take steps to create an open means of communication for employees to discuss issues and express concerns in a positive environment.
