Ethical Sourcing

Our Ethical Sourcing Policy

We expect suppliers to adopt sound labour practices; we expect them to treat their employees fairly, in accordance with local laws and regulations relating to labour and employment. We expect suppliers to adhere to the following requirements:

Child Labour

Vendors shall not use child labour. A “child” is a person who is younger than the local legal age for completing compulsory education. Gotham supports the development of legitimate apprenticeship programs for the education and benefit of young people under the age of 15 years, provided the child is not being exploited or given jobs that are dangerous to their health or safety.

Fair Wages and Benefits

Wages and benefits paid for a standard working week must meet as a minimum, any applicable local laws or industry practices, whichever is the higher. All workers must be provided with written and understandable information about their employment conditions in respect to wages, before they enter employment, and about the particulars of their wages for the pay period concerned each time they are paid.

Forced/Involuntary Labour

Vendors shall not use involuntary labour. ‘Involuntary Labour’ is defi ned as work or services extracted from any person under threat or penalty of its non-performance, and for which the worker does not offer himself or herself voluntarily. It includes all manner of prison, bonded, indentured and forced labour. Workers must be free to leave once their shift ends and free to leave their employment after reasonable notice.
