PeopleShare Guidelines

PeopleShare Guidelines on Child Labor

PeopleShare has adopted the following Principles to reinforce its core value of treating all people with dignity and respect:

  • We will not tolerate the use of child or forced labor in any of its operations and facilities.
  • We will not tolerate the exploitation of children, their engagement in unacceptably hazardous work, and the physical punishment, abuse, or involuntary servitude of any worker.
  • We expect the suppliers and contractors with whom we do business to uphold the same standards. Should a pattern of violation of these Principles become known to PeopleShare and not be corrected, we shall discontinue the business relationship.
  • For purposes of these Principles, a “child” is anyone who is less than 18 years of age.

It is the responsibility of local management to implement and ensure compliance with these principles at PeopleShare facilities in each region. PeopleShare has responsibility for ensuring the implementation and compliance with the principles by suppliers and contractors.


PeopleShare Guidelines on Forced Labor

Forced labor is work or service which is exacted from any person under the menace of any penalty for its nonperformance and for which the worker does not offer him-, or herself voluntarily. Providing wages or other compensation to a worker does not necessarily indicate that that labor is not forced or compulsory.

PeopleShare will not use Forced Labor in any of its operations. This commitment also extends to the use of any sub-vendors.

PeopleShare will not knowingly purchase, rent, lease, borrow or otherwise use any products, goods, services, or raw materials anywhere in the world made or provided by a supplier who knowingly uses forced or involuntary prison labor.


PeopleShare Guidelines on Freedom of association and collective bargaining

PeopleShare certifies that, as applicable, employees’ rights to freedom of association and collective bargaining will be recognized and respected.
