What is a working conditions and human rights policy? (Q5)

Answer

A Working Conditions and Human Rights Policy should ensure a company maintains standards of conduct. A company should comply with the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights, United Nations Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights and the International Labor Organization's (ILO) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.


It may be a policy document from the parent company or headquarters rather than the individual location. 

 

Background

Human rights are universally agreed minimum conditions inherent to all of us regardless of our nationality, place of residence, sex, national or ethnic origin, color, religion, or any other status. A Working Conditions and Human Rights Policy is a document and statement with guidelines and practices designed to ensure employees, suppliers and subcontractors are treated with dignity, fairness and respect. The policy should outline a company’s responsibility to respect and protect human rights. A Working Conditions and Human Rights Policy sets a clear framework and can help a company set expectations for both employees and suppliers. It plays a vital role to ensure a company's approach to human rights runs throughout their supply chain.
