COMPUWARE’S POLICIES ON SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
Compuware’s commitment to human rights is outlined in our own Employee Code of Conduct. Our Code of Conduct defines the legal and ethical standards that govern all employees worldwide. The Code is designed to deter wrongdoing and promote compliance with all applicable governmental laws, rules and regulations.
In addition, Compuware’s Supplier Code of Conduct (“COC”) outlines the ethical principles which we expect from our customers.
Compuware Corporation seeks to conduct business in a lawful, ethical and moral manner in every aspect of our company. We value our customers, our employees, our business partners, and our reputation, and recognise that they are the keys to the success we have achieved.
Compuware UK Ltd, Compuware Software Group and its parent Compuware Corporation are committed to ensuring that human trafficking or slavery are not taking place within our business or supply chain. Compuware does not condone such practices and will strive to ensure high ethical standards and ethical human rights are respected within our operations.
We expect our Suppliers to share this perspective, and therefore we require them to subscribe to certain moral and ethical principles in their business operations as detailed in Compuware’s Supplier Code of Conduct.
Compuware Corporation is proud of the steps we have taken to combat slavery and human trafficking. In particular, we have set out the following safeguards to ensure that Compuware and its suppliers prohibit and prevent modern slavery and human trafficking.
Compuware initially evaluates suppliers and periodically reviews their continued adherence to Compuware’s Supplier COC which includes the following requirements:
Suppliers must comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws, regulations and ordinances including those relating to wage and benefits.
Suppliers should maintain a workforce free of harassment and unlawful discrimination. Supplier companies should not engage in any form of discrimination based on race, national origin, religion, age, disability, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, or political affiliation.
Suppliers must provide workers with a safe and healthy work environment that complies with all applicable laws and regulations. Employees must have access to potable water and sanitary facilities, and all workplaces must have adequate fire safety, lighting and ventilation facilities. Residential facilities, if provided to workers, must also meet these requirements.
Suppliers shall provide workers with all benefits required by laws and regulations, including, if required, meals, transportation, health care, child care and leave for medical, family or religious reasons. As required by law or regulation, Suppliers shall make contributions towards workers’ social security and insurance programs.
Suppliers must keep employee records in accordance to local and/or national regulations.
Suppliers may not use child labor as defined by local laws and regulations, and in no case, may Suppliers use workers younger than the age of 16 or the compulsory age to be in school, whichever is higher.
Suppliers are prohibited from using forced or involuntary labor, including prisoners, bonded or indentured workers. Compuware will not purchase products from Suppliers using forced or involuntary labour.
Suppliers shall immediately report any improper or unethical conduct by Compuware employees to Compuware’s General Counsel.
SUPPLIER ADHERENCE TO OUR VALUES
Compuware will not tolerate or condone modern slavery or human trafficking in any part of our organisation nor with the suppliers with which we do business.
In accordance with our Code of Conduct, all Compuware customers, contractors and suppliers are expected to uphold Compuware’s policies regarding compliance with applicable laws and respect for human rights.
On an annual basis, Compuware will send a notification to all our United Kingdom suppliers regarding our stance on modern slavery and human trafficking, and the expectations we’ve set forth for all our suppliers in this regard.
Compuware will take all necessary steps to ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in our business nor within our supply chain.
To ensure a high level of awareness regarding the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking, Compuware has included its commitment to prevention and prohibition to its Employee and Supplier Codes of Conduct and demands compliance from every employee and supplier.
