Charles Gray Code of Conduct
Charles Gray is committed to respecting, protecting, and championing the human rights of all who work with us including operations, employees, supply chain workers, customers, and local communities. It’s our responsibility to make sure that the human rights of every worker in our supply chain are respected and protected. Everyone in our supply chain should feel safe at work, financially secure and respected.
To ensure that the human rights of all who work with us are protected and respected, we are following our ethical trading policy.
FORCED LABOUR, HUMAN TRAFFICKING & SLAVERY
Charles Gray firmly upholds the principle that child labour shall not be used under any circumstances. We explicitly prohibit the employment of children in any form, whether directly or indirectly, within the company's supply chain. This commitment extends to all stages of production, from raw material sourcing to manufacturing and distribution.
Young people under the age of 18 must not be in charge of hazardous machinery and should not work at night.
FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION AND COLLECTIVE BARGAINING
We recognise that both a worker’s right to organise and bargain collectively are the foundations for the realisation of other labour rights. Suppliers must guarantee the right of their employees to join unions and to bargain collectively.
The Employer must not prevent or discriminate against workers who wish to associate or bargain collectively. The Employer must adopt an open attitude towards the organisational activities of Trade Unions. Where the right to freedom of association and collective bargaining is restricted under law, the supplier must allow the development of parallel means for independent and free association and bargaining.
Charles Gray will not tolerate corruption and/or bribery throughout its supply chain
