Anti-Child Labor Policy

At Salt of the Earth Co LLC, we are firmly committed to ensuring that no child labor is used in any part of our operations or supply chain. Our Anti-Child Labor Policy outlines our commitment to ethical labor practices and the steps we take to prevent child labor.

Policy Overview:

  1. Strict Prohibition of Child Labor:

    • We strictly prohibit the use of child labor in any of our operations, including our supply chain. Child labor is defined as work that deprives children of their childhood, their potential, and their dignity, and that is harmful to their physical and mental development.

  3. Regular Audits and Inspections:

    • We conduct regular audits and inspections of our supply chain to ensure compliance with our Anti-Child Labor Policy.
    • Any supplier found to be in violation of this policy is subject to immediate corrective action, which may include termination of the business relationship.
  4. Employee and Supplier Training:

    • We provide training to our employees and suppliers on child labor laws and our Anti-Child Labor Policy.
    • This training helps to raise awareness and ensure adherence to ethical labor practices.
  5. Reporting and Remediation:

    • We encourage employees, suppliers, and other stakeholders to report any suspected cases of child labor. Reports can be made anonymously through our whistleblower hotline.
    • Any reported cases of child labor are investigated promptly. If a violation is confirmed, we take immediate action to address and remediate the situation.
  6. Continuous Improvement:

    • We are committed to continuous improvement in our efforts to prevent child labor. We regularly review and update our policies and practices to ensure they remain effective and aligned with best practices.
