California Transparency Act
On January 1, 2012, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657) went into effect in the State of California. This law was designed to increase the amount of information made available by manufacturers and retailers regarding their efforts to address the issue of slavery and human trafficking, thereby allowing companies to make more informed choices regarding the products they buy and the companies they choose to support.
Tahitian Gold has made a commitment to following fair employment practices and seeks to provide a safe environment in which to work. We abide by all applicable labor laws in the countries in which we do business including local laws addressing work hours, compensation, Associates’ rights to choose whether to be represented by third parties and to bargain collectively, working conditions and other such workplace practices. We seek to offer a workplace where individuals are treated with dignity, fairness, and respect. We celebrate the cultural differences and diversity of Associate backgrounds. We internally communicate these employment practices in Associate Handbooks. We implement surveys and other mechanisms to monitor compliance with these principles. We expects our suppliers to implement similar employment practices and follow applicable laws in the countries in which they operate.
Tahitian Gold seeks to develop relationships with suppliers that share similar values and conduct business in an ethical manner. These minimum requirements will become part of all new or renewed agreements between us and our direct suppliers. Suppliers must be able to demonstrate their compliance with these requirements at the request of and to the satisfaction of Tahitian Gold. We have the right to inspect, directly or through a third party, any site involved in work for us and any supplier that fails to satisfy us of its compliance with these requirements is subject to termination of any agreements between it and Tahitian Gold.
Wherever Tahitian Gold does business, we strive to be a trusted partner and good citizen. We are committed to managing business around the world with a consistent set of values that represents the highest standards of integrity and excellence.
