In order to make an impact and promote socially acceptable production conditions, through our membership in the Outdoor Industry Association (OIA) Nomadix has adopted this Fair Labor Code of Conduct. Nomadix declares its support for the OIA Fair Labor Code of Conduct and seek to conform to the Code and its standards.
Compliance with Laws and Workplace Regulations
Nomadix will comply with laws and regulations in all locations where they conduct business.
Prohibition of Forced Labor
There shall be no use of forced labor, including prison labor, indentured labor, bonded labor, human trafficking, slavery or other forms of forced labor.
Prohibition of Child Labor
Nomadix will not hire any employee under the age of 16. If the legal age for employment is higher than 16, then the higher age shall apply. In the case of hazardous work, the minimum age is 18.
Prohibition of Harassment or Abuse
Every employee shall be treated with respect and dignity. No employee shall be subject to any physical, sexual, psychological or verbal harassment or abuse.
Compensation and Benefits
Nomadix recognizes that wages are essential to meeting employees’ basic needs. Employees shall be paid, as a floor, at least the minimum wage required by local law or the prevailing industry wage, whichever is higher, and shall provide legally mandated benefits. In addition to their compensation for regular hours of work, employees shall be compensated for overtime hours at such premium rate as is legally required in the country of manufacture or, in those countries where such laws do not exist, at a rate at least equal to their regular hourly compensation rate.
Hours of Work
Nomadix 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. Nomadix shall allow workers at least one day of rest in every seven-day period. All overtime work shall be consensual. Except in extraordinary business circumstances, the sum of regular and overtime hours in a week shall not exceed 60 hours.
Prohibition of Discrimination
Employees will be hired, paid, promoted and terminated on the basis of their ability to do the job, rather than on the basis of personal characteristics or beliefs. No person shall be subject to discrimination in employment, including hiring, salary, benefits, advancement, discipline, termination or retirement on the basis of gender, race, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, pregnancy, nationality, political opinion, social or ethnic origin.
Health and Safety
Nomadix will provide 1) a safe and healthy work environment, 2) written safety and health policies and procedures, 3) provide training and adequate equipment to ensure workplace safety practices. Where residential housing is provided for workers, Nomadix will provide safe and healthy housing.
Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining
Nomadix will recognize and respect the freedom of employees to exercise their lawful rights of free association and collective bargaining. Where the right to freedom of association is restricted under law, vendors must allow their employees to raise with the vendors’ representatives any job-related grievances the employees may have, without penalty or reprisal.
Nomadix recognizes that environmental responsibility is integral to producing world-class products. In manufacturing operations, adverse effects on the environment and natural resources are to be minimized while safeguarding the health and safety of the public. Nomadix will comply with environmental rules, regulations and standards applicable to their operations, and will observe environmentally conscious practices in all locations where they operate.
