California Transparency in Supply Chains Act
On January 1, 2012, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010
(SB 657) will go into effect. This law increases the amount of information
disclosed to address the issues of slavery, human trafficking, forced labor
and child labor in supply chains. Universal Furniture commends global
efforts to eliminate these practices and believes individuals have the right
to freely choose employment, to associate freely and be represented by
worker councils or labor unions on a voluntary basis, and to bargain
collectively as they choose. Additionally, Universal Furniture believes
individuals have the right to a workplace free of harassment and unlawful
discrimination. As a responsible corporate citizen, we seek to ensure that
quality and safety standards are maintained throughout our supply chain by
well-treated workers in accordance with all applicable laws. We have
undertaken the following to ensure our suppliers are not engaging in forced
or child labor:Risk Assessments:
Furniture assesses risks using country specific research guides, government
assessments, and industry guidance. Risk assessments are the foundation for
the Samson Rules of Conduct Supplier Agreement. This agreement extends our
corporate values regarding ethical worker treatment and care for the
environment and sets forth compliance with international standards,
applicable laws and regulations.Acknowledgement of
Each Universal Furniture supplier is required to commit
that they acknowledge and agree to adhere to our Rules of Conduct Supplier
Agreement. Supplier Audits:
Compliance with our
Rules of Conduct is ensured with routine onsite audits attended by Universal
Furniture employees and by collaborative audits with suppliers.
Additionally, annual unannounced third party on-site audits are administered
by a validation team contracted by a retail partner.
Universal Furniture maintains a zero tolerance
policy for human trafficking, forced labor and child labor. If other
non-compliance issues arise from a supplier audit, suppliers are required to
produce corrective action plans, which Samson reviews and approves.
: Universal Furniture partners with
nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) to raise awareness of Samson’s
corporate values including provisions related to forced labor and child
labor. Our capacity building efforts include worker communications training,
which provides employees access to raise concerns with superiors.
: Universal Furniture trains employees
responsible for supply chain on-site audits in techniques to recognize and
report non-compliance with our expectations. In addition, Samson sourcing
personnel follow an “eyes always open” approach under which all relevant
personnel are trained to recognize environment, health, safety, and labor
red flags, including red flags relating to forced labor, and to report and
investigate all suspicions of improper conduct.
