Litehouse CA SB 657 Disclosure

The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 – S.B. 657

Litehouse is committed to the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labor, including human trafficking, and to the effective abolition of child labor.  Litehouse’s  Team Member Conduct and Work Rules, Policy 600, which applies to all Litehouse employees, explicitly prohibits Litehouse employees from hiring child or forced labor and states that any suspected instances of these abuses, whether in our own operations or those of suppliers, should be reported to our human resources (HR) function for investigation.  Litehouse’s employees and contractors are required to comply with The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 – S.B. 657 standards, and Litehouse provides training on the act to its Supply Chain personnel. 

Litehouse expects its suppliers to comply with legal requirements and operate consistently with the principles of Litehouse when working on our behalf.  Accordingly, we consider these rights issues when we assess potential suppliers.  Litehouse does not currently have a formal verification program, but requires its suppliers to be in compliance with The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 – S.B. 657 and does not audit suppliers at this time.  Litehouse employees who engage suppliers, vendors, or individual contractors to work on behalf of Litehouse are required to inform them on Litehouse’s commitment to the act and seek their cooperation in adhering to it.  This does not require direct suppliers to make a certification regarding materials incorporated into their products.  Litehouse maintains internal accountability standards and procedures for employees and contractors who fail to comply with the act and investigate reported cases of non-compliance and will terminate contracts when a serious breach is found to have occurred.
