Respect for human rights and labor
We respect human rights and practice the following to create an organization that values diversity.
In addition, TOYO Compliance, a code of ethics and legal compliance for all employees, has been established to ensure thorough compliance.
Equal employment opportunities and prohibition of discrimination
We educate all employees about correct understanding and awareness of human rights issues based on TOYO Compliance.
We respect human rights and do not discriminate based on race, gender, age, sexual orientation, mental or physical disability, beliefs, religion, or nationality. In addition, we do not condone such discrimination.
Payment of wages exceeding the minimum wage
We comply with labor laws and regulations and pay employees wages in excess of the minimum wage.
We comply with minimum wage provisions in each country and pay wages in excess of them. We promise to pay the wages required to stabilize the lives of our employees.
Respect for freedom of association and collective bargaining rights
We respect the freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining.
Prohibition of harassment
We will not engage in or condone sexual harassment, power harassment, pregnancy, childbirth, childcare, or nursing-care harassment, or any other harassment. We will comply with labor-related laws and regulations and constantly strive to create a good work environment.
Specifically, we use e-learning to continuously provide training on various types of harassment (sexual harassment, power harassment, harassment related to pregnancy, childbirth, childcare, and nursing care) to maintain a high level of awareness of all employees. In addition, we have established a whistle-blowing hotline operated by an external third-party organization to receive anonymous reports and consultations.
Reduction of excessive work and overtime
We strive to reduce excessive work and overtime by giving consideration to employee health and work-life balance.
We comply with the Labor Standards Law and the “36” Agreement, avoid excessive work such as long working hours, unusual overtime work, and late-night work, and make efforts to reduce overtime. We also encourage employees to take annual paid holidays.
Specifically, we have created an environment in which we can check the working hours of employees by using a system that enables us to grasp their daily working conditions in a timely manner. We share information with related parties to prevent long working hours and to avoid breaching the “36” agreement. In addition to holidays, we have also established certain days on which employees are encouraged to take paid holidays, considering work-life balance and the maintenance and promotion of health.
Prevention of forced labor and child labor
When hiring employees, we do not consider children as eligible for employment, and we comply with the laws and regulations of each country and region. To date, we have not experienced any case of child labor or forced labor.
We continue to ensure thorough compliance with laws and regulations so that child labor and forced labor do not occur, and we conduct regular monitoring.
