At GlamCorner we aim to build ethical and sustainable practices into every aspect of our business and we recognise the importance of managing our supply chain. This Supplier Code of Conduct aims to define standards for fair, safe and healthy working conditions and environmental responsibility throughout our supply chain.
GlamCorner seeks to work with suppliers who are committed to continuous improvement and who are moving forward on their sustainability journey from basic to leadership practices. The intent of this Supplier Code of Conduct is to share our principles and clearly communicate GlamCorner’s expectations of our suppliers.
GlamCorner expect our suppliers to review this Code of Conduct and encourage them to ensure that their organisations and their extended supply chains comply with these principles, including: sub-suppliers, sub-contractors as well as permanent, temporary and agency workers whether they are salaried, hourly paid, legal young workers, part-time, night and migrant workers.
GlamCorner and its employees are committed to the following ethical standards and business practices:
We expect our suppliers, and their respective supply chains, to share our values and adhere to these same principles which form part of our Supplier Code of Conduct.
Suppliers are required to operate fully with relevant and all applicable laws and regulations of the countries in which they operate, including those at the federal, state/provincial and local community levels. GlamCorner only seeks to partner with suppliers whom we consider reputable and whose business and labour practices conform to the requirements of applicable laws.
We expect that all suppliers to GlamCorner will be aware that human rights are universal and fundamental rights that preserve the inherent freedom, dignity and equality of all human beings. We expect all suppliers to:

GlamCorner is committed to developing a supplier list which reflects our diverse customer base and offers a wide range of perspectives and capabilities. The suppliers we seek to engage, include: indigenous-owned businesses, women-owned or led businesses, disability enterprises and social enterprises.
Suppliers must not employ workers younger than the greater of 15 years of age; or 14 where the local law allows such exception consistent with International Labour Organisation Guidelines; or the age for completing compulsory education or the minimum age established by law in the country of manufacture. Juvenile workers (ages 15-17) shall not perform work which, by its nature or the circumstances in which it is carried out, is likely to comprise their health, safety or morals.
Suppliers must not use involuntary or forced/slave labour. GlamCorner will not allow forced or involuntary labour whether in the form of prison labour, indentured labour, slave or bonded labour. Overtime hours must be voluntary. Migrant workers should be provided with contracts, treatment and wages that equal those of local workers.
Suppliers must treat all workers with respect and dignity. No workers shall be subject to corporal punishment, physical, sexual, psychological or verbal harassment or abuse. In addition, Suppliers will not use monetary fines as a disciplinary practice.

All Suppliers must develop and implement effective, respectful and transparent communications between employees to resolve any internal employee grievance and disputes.
We expect our suppliers to compensate their workers and pay wages which equal or exceed the minimum wage required by local law and providing legally mandated benefits. Every worker has a right to compensation for a regular work week that is sufficient to meet the worker’s and their family’s basic needs and provide some discretionary income.
In addition, Suppliers must compensate employees for overtime hours at such a premium rate as is legally required in the country of manufacture. In those countries where such laws do not exist, the overtime hours must be compensated at a rate exceeding the regular hourly compensation rate by at least 125%.
Suppliers must ensure that their workers are not required to work more than the limits on regular and overtime hours allowed by the laws and regulations in the country in which they manufacture. In extraordinary business circumstances, workers shall not be required to work more than 60 hours per week (including overtime). Except in extraordinary business circumstances, all workers shall be entitled to at least one day off in every seven day period. All overtime work shall be consensual and employers shall not request overtime hours on a regular basis.
Suppliers must provide their workers with a clean, safe and healthy work environment, designed to prevent accidents and injury to health arising out of or occurring during the course of work. Suppliers are required to comply with all applicable, legally mandated standards for workplace health and safety in the countries in which they operate.
Suppliers will ensure women workers receive equal treatment in all aspects of employment. Pregnancy tests will not be a condition of employment, and pregnancy testing, to the extent provided, will be voluntary and the option of the worker. In addition, workers will not be forced to use contraception.
