At Härter, responsibility for employees extends beyond national borders: The international SA 8000 social standard applies at our company locations around the globe, and special representatives and divisional representatives ensure that these standards are met. Compliance is also monitored with regular internal audits.
Social responsibility in a nutshell: our guiding principles
- We oppose child labour, the work of minors, forced labour, discrimination and disciplinary sanctions.
- We provide a safe and healthy working environment. In particular, we stand up for the protection of women workers.
- We respect the right of all workers to form and join trade unions and to bargain collectively.
- Working hours and leave are defined in the company agreements. The respective national laws and regulations apply at the foreign locations.
- Our wages meet the legal standards or minimum standards of the industry and are sufficient to meet the basic needs of employees and provide free disposable income.
- So-called conflict materials are not processed in our company.
