Human Rights Compliance and Auditing
Our Vice President of Human Resources, reporting directly to our Chief Executive Officer, is responsible for overseeing our human rights efforts. Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiaries are monitored for compliance through an internal audit process, which includes a compliance assessment against our Global Labor and Employment Guidelines. Procedures are in place to identify and remedy non-compliance situations, which are reported to senior management.
Additionally, regional Labor and Employee Relations staffs are responsible for investigating potential non-compliances. Employees are also free to anonymously report potential violations via a company-wide compliance hotline. The Company also has an Open Door policy by which employees are encouraged to bring forth their concerns to any manager, regardless of level, within the Company in order to have them addressed. Remediation of confirmed non-compliance situations is handled between regional Employee Relations units and the respective business units.
We recognize that certain countries are considered at risk for human rights violations. Our Statement on Human Rights articulates our commitments to protect human rights globally. Of the 60 countries in which Johnson & Johnson has operations, those countries considered at risk include:
|• Angola||• Israel||• Thailand|
|• China||• Lebanon||• United Arab Emirates|
|• Columbia||• Morocco||• Venezuela|
|• Egypt||• Pakistan||• Vietnam|
|• India||• Russia||• Zimbabwe|
|• Indonesia||• Saudi Arabia|
We also work to assure that our external manufacturers are in compliance with our expectations. External manufacturers for Johnson & Johnson operating companies must adhere to our Responsibility Standards for Suppliers, and enter into an enforceable written agreement to comply with these standards. They are subject to periodic inspections and must maintain records to demonstrate conformance to these standards.
