Fair Working Conditions, Fair Compensation and Freedom of Association

The Group’s commitment to promote fair working conditions, prohibit child labour and all forms of forced and compulsory labour, any kind of discrimination, promoting fair wages as well as prohibiting abuse and inhumane treatment both internally and with our supplier’s, is communicated in our Human rights policy and Business Code of Conduct.

The Group supports and promotes freedom of association and recognizes the right to collective bargaining.

All our employees are free to organize themselves in unions of their choice. They also have the right to engage in collective bargaining. Employees not covered by collective bargaining agreements have identical working conditions and terms of employment as those who are organized in unions of their choice.

The Group keeps a close dialogue with employee representatives, as well as cooperates actively with  its employees/ trade unions.

Lerøy screens all new suppliers using social criteria to verify if the Group’s suppliers adhere to Lerøy’s Business Code of Conduct and establish whether they have implemented necessary measures and practices to support and maintain fair working conditions.

All our employees have written employment contracts in which compensation is specified. Our personnel system and the presence of labour unions ensure that all employees are compensated fairly.

The Group complies with the laws applicable in the different countries in which we operate. The Group’s Business Code of Conduct states that no employee is paid less than the official national minimum wage and industry standard.
