Employment and Labor Laws and Policies

Our most important resource is our employees. All employment must be in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including those concerning hours, compensation, opportunity, human rights and working conditions.

We base employment decisions on merit, considering qualifications, skills and achievements. We do not tolerate discrimination based on characteristics such as age, gender, race, ethnic background, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin or religious beliefs. We also do not tolerate harassment.

It is the policy of Johnson & Johnson that all employees work in a clean, orderly and safe environment. In the interest of maintaining a safe and healthy workplace, the Company requires full compliance with applicable workplace safety and industrial hygiene standards as mandated by law.

In addition to local laws and regulations, the Company’s Employment of Young Persons policy applies to the employment of persons under the age of 18 in the manufacture of any product, or any component of a product, by or for any of our businesses. Company policy also prohibits the use of any forced or compulsory labor in the manufacture of any product, or any component of a product, by or for any of our businesses.
