Finally, our Vendor Code of Conduct specifically communicates to our vendors: “Abercrombie will not tolerate the use of convict, indentured, slave, bonded, or other forced involuntary labor, including human trafficking, either directly or indirectly, by its vendors, or by any subcontractors utilized by its vendors.” Each vendor that receives Abercrombie business must acknowledge this.

 

Wouldn't work with them so this would see cancelled contracts.

"If any labor issues are uncovered during an audit, the factory must take immediate

steps to correct the problem. This begins with creating a corrective action plan within 30 days. The vendor then comes under Company conservatorship to ensure there are no recurrences, which requires regular updates on the corrective measures taken, as well as photographic evidence."

If any factory should fail on any of these indicators and/or refuse tomake improvements, the relationship could be terminated.7
