DayMen Supplier Code of Conduct
DayMen believes it is essential to deal with honesty and integrity toward all – the company, customers, suppliers, vendors and each other. Therefore, we ask that our business partners accept the DayMen Supplier Code of Conduct. Business partners include all involved with DayMen and its affiliates in making, processing, manufacturing; including contractors, sub-contractors and suppliers. We choose our business partners according to the following standards.
DayMen may visit (and/or have our external monitors visit) business partners with or without notice to assess compliance with this Code. We may submit 3rd party auditors to evaluate our business partners' wage, hour, and other worker records and practices. Violations of this Code may result in termination as a DayMen business partner.
This Supplier Code of Conduct uses standards such as Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and Ethical Trade Initiative (ETI) to create this language. These documents elaborate further on terms and definition, and are useful for further information.
