On January 1, 2012, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 became effective. A company subject to this Act is required to disclose its efforts, if any, to address the issues of slavery and human trafficking in its supply chain.
The EJ Group, Inc., and its subsidiaries (EJ) are committed to fair employment practices and to compliance with employment laws in the United States and other countries where we manufacture or source products in our supply chain. This includes complying with laws that prohibit child or forced labor. However, EJ companies do not currently: (1) engage in verification of product supply chains to evaluate and address risks of human trafficking and slavery; (2) conduct audits of suppliers to evaluate supplier compliance with company standards for trafficking and slavery in supply chains; (3) require direct suppliers to certify that materials incorporated into their products comply with the laws regarding slavery and human trafficking of the country or countries in which they are doing business; (4) maintain internal accountability standards and procedures for employees or contractors failing to meet company standards regarding slavery and human trafficking; or (5) provide employees and management, who have direct responsibility for supply chain management, training on human trafficking and slavery.
