California Transparency in Supply Chains Act (SB 657)
Legacy Classic Furniture believes all individuals have the right to freely choose
employment, to be represented by worker councils or labor unions on a voluntary
basis, and to bargain collectively as they choose. Additionally, Legacy Classic
Furniture believes all individuals have the right to a workplace free of harassment
and unlawful discrimination. As a responsible corporate citizen, we seek to ensure
that quality and safety standards are maintained throughout our supply chain and
that all applicable laws and regulations are upheld. We expect our suppliers to
share our commitments to reduce waste, use resources responsibly, and advance the
welfare of workers. We believe that partnerships based on honesty, integrity, collaboration
and mutual respect are integral to achieve continuous improvement. To ensure our
standards are upheld, we've taken the following steps:
Risk Assessments: Legacy Classic Furniture assesses risks using country specific
research guides, government assessments, and industry guidance. Risk assessments
are the foundation for our Rules of Conduct Supplier Agreement. This agreement extends
our corporate values regarding ethical worker treatment and care for the environment
and sets forth compliance with international standards, applicable laws and regulations.
Acknowledgement of Standards:
Our suppliers are required to commit that they acknowledge and agree to adhere to
our Rules of Conduct Supplier Agreement.
Supplier Audits: Compliance with our Rules of Conduct is ensured with routine onsite
audits attended by company employees or by employees of our parent corporation,
Samson Marketing, and by collaborative audits with suppliers. Additionally, annual
unannounced third party on-site audits are administered by a validation team contracted
by a retail partner.
Legacy Classic Furniture maintains a zero tolerance policy for human trafficking,
forced labor and child labor. If other non-compliance issues arise from a supplier
audit, suppliers are required to produce corrective action plans, which Legacy Classic
reviews and approves.
Legacy Classic Furniture's parent corporation, Samson Marketing, partners with nongovernmental
organizations and training partners to raise awareness of Samson Marketing's corporate
values including provisions related to forced labor and child labor. Capacity building
efforts include worker communications training, which provides employees access
to raise concerns with superiors.
Legacy Classic Furniture trains employees responsible for supply chain on-site audits
in techniques to recognize and report non-compliance with our expectations. In addition,
Legacy Classic Furniture sourcing personnel follow an "eyes always open" approach
under which all relevant personnel are trained to recognize environment, health,
safety, and labor red flags, including red flags relating to forced labor, and to
report and investigate all suspicions of improper conduct.
