A+ School Apparel is concerned about human dignity, and we have gone to great lengths to promote the well being of our workers, worldwide. While factories throughout the world operate in different legal and cultural environments, our Working Conditions/Code of Conduct Policy sets forth the requirements that all factories must meet, as a condition of doing business with us. A+ School Apparel will not support anything that compromises this Policy by infringing upon the human rights of any individual.
Domestic Working Conditions
Our factory in Star City, Arkansas, employs several hundred people year round. It is fully air-conditioned, highly automated, and employees work regular 8-hour shifts. A+ School Apparel provides a full range of health benefits to our employees and their families, including medical and dental coverage, life and short-term disability insurance, and a 401K plan with employer contributions. Employees also enjoy a liberal vacation and family leave policy. All of these are reasons why we have many dedicated and loyal employees who have been with the company since it relocated to Arkansas in 1985.
Off-Shore Code of Conduct
In regards to our off-shore production facilities, A+ School Apparel requires that our locations must operate in full compliance with the laws of their respective countries and with all other applicable laws, rules and regulations. Additionally, our company complies with all labor, worker health, safety and environmental laws in each of our locations; does not discriminate based on characteristics, beliefs, race, gender, nationality, religion, age, maternity or marital status; employs only workers that meet the applicable minimum legal age requirement; pays at least the minimum legal wage or the local industry standard, whichever is greater; and treats all their workers with dignity and respect in a safe and healthy environment.
