KPMG Policies

Prohibition on Human Trafficking Policy – KPMG LLP prohibits the use of human trafficking, forced labor or other prohibited activities by KPMG LLP personnel, and seeks to ensure that it does not accept products or services from KPMG LLP subcontractors that employ or utilize human trafficking or forced labor or engage other prohibited activities. KPMG LLP strictly prohibits destroying, concealing, confiscating, or otherwise denying KPMG LLP personnel access to their identity or immigration documents, including but not limited to passports or driver’s licenses. 

Recruitment and Wage Plan – When mandated by law or contract, KPMG LLP will provide KPMG LLP employees a written employment contract, in a language the prospective employee understands.  The KPMG LLP Employee Agreement shall include, but is not limited to, details about: work description; wages; prohibition on charging recruitment fees; work location(s); living accommodations and associated costs (if applicable); time off; roundtrip transportation arrangements; process for raising concerns; and, the content of applicable laws and regulations that prohibit trafficking in persons.
