CLASSIC FASHION complies with all the laws and regulations enshrined in the Constitution of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan as amended from time to time. All regulations relating to wages and work hours , minimum age for employment and related restrictions, health and safety standards, environmental protection, non-discrimination in employment, general labour laws, international trade laws and conventions and drug enforcement regulations, etc are strictly adhered to.
CLASSIC FASHION complies with all rules, regulations and standards applicable to infrastructural facilities, factory operations and trade practices and takes all care to create an eco-friendly environment. Government agencies are always permitted to inspect the facilities for compliance with environmental laws and regulations. Their inspection reports, operating certificates, notices of deficiencies, corrective action reports and correspondences regarding inspections are kept at the site for perusal of future inspection teams.
Not satisfied with mere compliance with the environmental regulations in place, CLASSIC FASHION has taken initiatives of its own to conserve scarce natural resources, to save energy as far as possible, to manage wastes and recycle these, especially water, and to reduce pollution both atmospheric and environmental to the minimum. Some of the steps already implemented are:
Compensation and Benefits
The minimum compensation required by local law, including mandated wages, overtime allowances, additional legally dictated benefits and payments according to the terms of their employment are paid to the workers and other employees of CLASSIC FASHION without any delay in payment.
Hours of Work
CLASSIC FASHION ensures that the hours worked each day and the days worked each week do not exceed the legal maximum. One day off is allowed in every seven-day period, except as required to meet urgent business needs, in which case additional compensation is paid for the extra work.
No Forced or Involuntary Labour
As CLASSIC FASHION gives more importance to basic human rights, it never extracts any forced or involuntary labour -- indentured, bonded or otherwise -- from the workers. It prohibits all relevant personnel from coercing employees in any way or unnecessarily limiting the freedom of movement enjoyed by the employees.
Child Labour Laws
As a policy CLASSIC FASHION believes in compulsory education for Children and that today's children carry the key to tomorrow's future. Therefore, no child labor is allowed in any unit or at any stage of production. No person under the legally employable age is hired for any work.
Freedom from Harassment and abuse
Neither any form of harassment or abuse, be it physical, sexual, psychological or verbal, nor any threat of violence or corporal punishment is used against the workers or other staff, as CLASSIC FASHION believes that allowing them to have self-respect will produce respect in return and will promote a better work-atmosphere which will enhance the output of the workers.
CLASSIC FASHION employs, pays, promotes and/or terminates workers purely on the basis of their ability and efficiency in the discharge of their duties. No discrimination is made on the basis of their personal characteristics which are irrelevant to the execution of their job or their personal beliefs. No distinction or discrimination is ever made or allowed on the basis of age, gender, nationality, political opinions, race, caste, creed, social status etc.
Health and Safety
A safe and healthy workplace with adequate First Aid Kits, with Nurses & Doctors, nutritive food in sufficient quantity and accommodation is provided for the employees in CLASSIC FASHION. This work environment is provided with all the necessities implemented according to applicable laws and regulations. Sufficient lighting and ventilation, easy access to purified drinking water and sanitation facilities, fire safety, automated tripping system to prevent electric shock etc. are provided.
Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining
CLASSIC FASHION recognizes and respects the right of its employees, whether permanent or temporary, from the highest paid to the lowest paid, to exercise their lawful rights of free association and collective bargaining. No discrimination, in any form, is made between those who join associations and/or engage in collective bargaining and those who do not. No special benefits are given to those who stay away from such activities.
Compliance with Customs Laws
Compliance with all applicable customs laws is a policy of CLASSIC FASHION. Proper category designation is determined and noted for all goods destined for export. No tampering, altering or replacing in any way is allowed in case of any product going out of the production units. All laws regarding illegal transshipment of apparel products are strictly adhered to.
