LABOR PRACTICES

Imation™ affirms the right of every person to be treated with respect and dignity and to be provided working conditions that promote the well being of all employees. To ensure these standards Imation has adopted the following labor standards as set forth in the Electronic Industry Code of Conduct (EICC). We expect that our suppliers adopt these principles and in turn apply them to their own suppliers.


FORCED OR INVOLUNTARY LABOR

Imation will not use forced or involuntary labor of any type (e.g., forced, bonded, indentured or involuntary prison labor); employment is voluntary.


CHILD LABOR

Imation will not use child labor. The term “child” refers to any person employed under the age of 15 (or 14 where the law of the country permits), or under the age for completing compulsory education, or under the minimum age for employment in the country, whichever is greatest.


WAGES AND BENEFITS

Imation will, at a minimum, comply with all applicable wage and hour laws and regulations, including those relating to minimum wage, overtime hours, piece rates and other elements of compensation, and provide legally mandated benefits.


WORKING HOURS

Imation will not exceed prevailing local work hours and will appropriately compensate overtime. Workers shall not be required to work more than 60 hours per week, including overtime, except in extraordinary business circumstances with their consent. In countries where the maximum work week is less, that standard shall apply.

Employees should be allowed at least one day off per seven-day week.


NONDISCRIMINATION

Imation will not discriminate in hiring and employment practices on grounds of race, religion, age, nationality, social or ethnic origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or expression, marital status, pregnancy, political affiliation, or disability. (Imation Equal Opportunity Policy).


RESPECT AND DIGNITY

Imation will treat all employees with respect and will not use corporal punishment, threats of violence or other forms of physical coercion or harassment.


FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION

Imation Suppliers shall respect the legal rights of employees to join or to refrain from joining worker organizations, including trade unions. Suppliers have the right to establish favorable employment conditions and to maintain effective employee communication programs as a means of promoting positive employee relations that make employees view third-party representation as unnecessary.
