9780273653776: SA8000: The Definitive Guide to the New Social Standard

Developed by the Social Accountability Institute (with significant input from companies like Toys `R' Us) the Social Accountability 8000 business standards are an attempt to provide companies with a process that can help them avoid charges of exploiting child labor and other downsides of the new global economy. Believing that the standard will also help companies with business competitiveness by "enhancing their reputations" and reducing workplace turnover, the author presents the auditing and compliance certification procedures for the voluntary standard. SA800 address issues specific to child labor, health and safety, freedom of association, the right to collective bargaining, disciplinary practices, working hours, and compensation. She also discusses the procedures for integrating SA8000 into a corporation's business planning. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
