Ferdamo’s principles in terms of labor laws, human rights, workplace safety, business ethics, and the environment are demonstrated by the practices described below:
Ferdamo is committed to the highest standards in our labor practices, health and safety of our employees, and ethical business practices.
The management of contract labor is one of our core competencies–in no small measure. As such, we are highly focused on adhering to The Fair Labor Standards Act, local labor laws, and prevailing wage rates. We cross-reference job titles of Ferdamo, which must meet the standards of The Fair Labor Act to ensure proper pay. We have yearly audits that review all new employees to ensure compliance. In addition, we continually survey the labor market to stay current.
We have a zero tolerance for workplace harassment of any kind, an open policy of communication including formal whistleblower and issue resolution policies.
Business ethics: As a baseline for business ethics, all Ferdamo employees are required to follow our employee code of conduct. Ferdamo management has committed to verifiable business integrity. We have a well-documented, process-driven quality system and we are subject to continuous quality, as well as traditional auditing processes. In addition, we are highly supportive of, and compliant with, corporate accountability legislation.
We believe our services stand on their own merits and will not seek unfair advantage. We are also committed to the protection of both Ferdamo’s and our clients or suppliers’ intellectual property and the confidential information of our employees and business partners (through mutual agreements, password protection, and limited access).
Ferdamo initiated a plan to centrally manage our environmental initiatives and polices, and a living document that permits us to continue to improve our environmental footprint both as individuals and as a company. Ferdamo’s environmental strategy has three areas of focus:
To support this effort we will:
Clearly state our polices, initiatives, measurements, and results
Continue to offer and expand training opportunities
Continue to support environment-focused events such Earth Day programs
Continually raise awareness of environmentally sound practices within our company through policy manuals, in-house publications, and our websites
There are currently no environment regulatory actions pending against Ferdamo.
