Ashley-Edison (UK) is committed to uphold the human rights of our employees and workers, and to treat them with dignity and respect as understood by the international community.
We are committed to ensuring:
Freely Chosen Employment
Child Labour Avoidance
Child labour is not used in any part of the organisation’s operations. The term “child” refers to any person under the age of 15 (or 14 where the law of the country permits), or under the age for completing compulsory education, or under the minimum age for employment in the country, whichever is greatest. The use of legitimate workplace apprenticeship programs, which comply with all laws and regulations, is actively supported and encouraged. Employees under the age of 18 do not perform work that is likely to jeopardize the health or safety of young workers or employees.
Workweeks do not exceed the maximum set by local law. Further, a working week should not be more than 60 hours per week, including overtime, except in emergency or unusual situations. Workers are allowed at least one day off per seven-day week.
Wages & Benefits
Our disciplinary policies and procedures are clearly defined and communicated to employees. There is to no harsh and inhumane treatment, including any sexual harassment, sexual abuse, corporal punishment, mental or physical coercion or verbal abuse of our employees: nor is there the threat of any such treatment.
