Ethical Seller Expectations
Last Revised September 12, 2023
Jawa expects sellers on the platform to comply with our ethical expectations. Additionally, if you work with a production partner, employees, contractors or other third parties, we expect you to do your diligence to ensure that you and they comply with all applicable laws and regulations, including safety, labor, and employment laws.
While Jawa does not audit or approve sellers or their production partners, we do expect you to consider the following standards when working with production partners and other service providers:
- No child labor or youth labor. You and any production partner you choose to work with should follow all local laws and rules regarding working hours and working conditions for minors.
- No involuntary labor. You and your production partners should not use involuntary labor, including slave labor, prison labor, indentured labor, or forced labor.
- Humane working conditions. You and your production partners must provide humane working hours for employees and other service providers, and must not use any form of physical or psychological coercion or intimidation against such workers.
- Non-discrimination.There should be no tolerance for discrimination on the basis of:
- National origin
- Gender identity
- Sexual orientation
- Any other characteristic protected under applicable law
