Supplier’s Code of Conduct
Rosetta Getty LLC conducts business in accordance with ethical and moral guidelines outlined by its management, to ensure working relationships based on fairness and transparency at all levels. The company expects its suppliers to respect and uphold these principles in relation to the management of their own workplaces.
The guidelines as outlined in this document, which express Rosetta Getty LLC’s values, require strict supplier compliance at all levels and at all times.
Any breach or violation of this code and/or local or international standard by our suppliers can potentially cause a re-evaluation by Rosetta Getty LLC of the business relationship.
It is our strict understanding that suppliers respect all local and international laws, in addition to the Conventions of the International Labor Organization, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the guiding principles of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, as well as the principles of the Global Compact.
Employment Requirements and Responsibilities
The suppliers shall abide by the codes of conduct described in the International ethical standard SA 8000. In turn, suppliers must also comply with all local laws & regulations as applied to the terms of work in their own countries.
Forced Labor: The use of labor with no work permit or the use of labor in another
social and occupational group in another geographical zone than the one mentioned on the work permit is strictly prohibited. The use of forced labor by our suppliers, whether obtained under the threat of punishment, withholding identity papers, requiring workers to deposit a bond or any other constraint is strictly prohibited.
Additionally, suppliers may not require employees to work to repay a debt owed to
them or a third party. All workers are entitled to accept or leave their employment

Any work which is likely to jeopardize children’s physical, mental or moral health should not be done by anyone under the age of 18.
