Human Rights Policy
Tacori Enterprises Human Rights Policy
This policy applies to Tacori Enterprises (“TACORI”), the entities that we own, the entities in which we hold a majority interest, the facilities that we manage, and any external parties that are part of the supply chain. TACORI also expects independent retailers and suppliers to uphold these principles and urges them to adopt similar policies within their own businesses.
We use due diligence as a means to identify and prevent human rights risks to people in our business. This Human Rights Policy is overseen by TACORI’s Board of Directors, and its Chief Legal Counsel, Armand Andonian.
Where appropriate, we engage with a wide range of stakeholders on human rights issues related to our business. This includes issues in our company, across our value chain and with our various sponsorships, through which we seek to promote respect for human rights.
Diversity and Inclusion
We value and advance the diversity and inclusion of the people with whom we work.
We are committed to equal opportunity and are intolerant of discrimination and harassment.
We work to maintain workplaces that are free from discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, sex, color, national or social origin, ethnicity, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, political opinion or any other status protected by applicable law. The basis for recruitment, hiring, placement, development, training, compensation and advancement at the Company is qualifications, performance, skills and experience.
We do not tolerate disrespectful or inappropriate behavior, unfair treatment or retaliation of any kind. Harassment is not tolerated in the workplace and in any work-related circumstance outside the workplace.
Safe and Healthy Workplace
The safety and health of our employees is of paramount importance. Our policy is to provide a safe and healthy workplace and comply with applicable safety and health laws and regulations, as well as internal requirements. We work to provide and maintain a safe, healthy and productive workplace, in consultation with our employees, by addressing and remediating identified risks of accidents, injury and health impacts.
We are committed to maintaining a workplace that is free from violence, harassment, intimidation and other unsafe or disruptive conditions due to internal and external threats. Security safeguards for employees are provided, as needed, and are maintained with respect for employee privacy and dignity.
Forced Labor and Human Trafficking
We prohibit the use of all forms of forced labor, including prison labor, indentured labor, bonded labor, military labor, modern forms of slavery and any form of human trafficking.
We prohibit the hiring of individuals that are under 18 years of age.
Work Hours, Wages, and Benefits
We compensate employees competitively relative to the industry and local labor market. We work to ensure full compliance with applicable wage, work hours, overtime and benefits laws.
Guidance and Reporting for Employees
We strive to create workplaces in which open and honest communications among all employees are valued and respected. Any employee who believes a conflict arises between the language of the policy and the laws, customs and practices of the place where he or she works, or who has questions about this policy or would like to confidentially report a potential violation of this policy, should raise those questions and concerns with local management, Human Resources or Tacori’s Chief Legal Counsel.
