CODE OF CONDUCT

PREAMBLE

Cutter & Buck is a Participating member of the Fair Labor Association (FLA). We believe in business solutions that are sustainable from a social and environmental perspective. Our corporate values are based on worker rights, safe and healthy working conditions and fair and equitable treatment.

The FLA Workplace Code of Conduct applies to every aspect of our business and we expect suppliers to share and uphold similar values. When differences or conflicts in standards arise, companies shall apply whichever requirements are more stringent.

FLA runs a monitoring scheme to ensure compliance with the Workplace Code. Suppliers can be subject to announced and unannounced audits as part of the verification process. Respect the integrity of our compliance auditors and those acting on our behalf, so that they may perform the assigned assessment.

When Code standards are not met Cutter & Buck expects suppliers to make improvements and to develop sustainable mechanisms to ensure ongoing compliance with the Workplace Code.

HEALTH, SAFETY, AND ENVIRONMENT

Employers shall provide a safe and healthy workplace setting to prevent accidents and injury to health arising out of, linked with, or occurring in the course of work or as a result of the operation of employers’ facilities. Employers shall adopt responsible measures to mitigate negative impacts that the workplace has on the environment.

HOURS OF WORK

Employers shall not require workers to work more than the regular and overtime hours allowed by the law of the country where the workers are employed. The regular work week shall not exceed 48 hours. Employers shall allow workers at least 24 consecutive hours of rest in every seven-day period. All overtime work shall be consensual. Employers shall not request overtime on a regular basis and shall compensate all overtime work at a premium rate. Other than in exceptional circumstances, the sum of regular and overtime hours in a week shall not exceed 60 hours.

Employers shall pay at least the minimum wage or the appropriate prevailing wage, whichever is higher, comply with all legal requirements on wages, and provide any fringe benefits required by law or contract. Where compensation does not meet workers’ basic needs and provide some discretionary income, each employer shall work with the FLA to take appropriate actions that seek to progressively realize a level of compensation that does.
