6.0 Human Trafficking

6.1 Why it is important to prevent human trafficking.

Human trafficking can take many forms. In Cribl’s industry, it most often reveals itself in coercive employment practices in the recruiting marketplace, or in corporate operations. Involuntary servitude in any form runs counter to Cribl’s corporate values, is an offense to human dignity, and will not be tolerated.

Prohibiting human trafficking ensures that all Users can enjoy the freedom of movement that is so foundational to a remote company like Cribl and that Cribl does not unknowingly contribute to institutions or operations that would threaten the dignity of others.

Numerous state and federal laws, as well as contractual requirements, require Cribl to institute policies to prevent human trafficking and comply with applicable immigration and labor laws. The failure to comply with this policy and applicable legal requirements may result in criminal prosecution of responsible individuals and the debarment of Cribl from government contracts.

6.2 Prohibition

Cribl prohibits trafficking in persons, slavery, and all forms of involuntary servitude. No employee may engage in any practice that constitutes those activities. For example, Covered Entities must not:

  • Engage in any form of trafficking in people, use forced labor in the performance of any work, or use immigration status as a manipulative tool to recruit candidates or demand continued employment for Cribl or one of Cribl’s affiliated entities;
  • Destroy, conceal, confiscate, or otherwise deny access by an individual to that person’s identity or immigration documents, including that person’s passport or driver’s license, government identification, regardless of the issuing authority;
  • Use misleading or fraudulent practices during the recruitment of candidates or offering of employment or contract positions, including by failing to disclose, in a format and language accessible to the potential candidate, basic information on the position and its requirements;
  • Make material misrepresentations during the recruitment of candidates regarding key terms, conditions, and requirements, including wages and fringe benefits, the location of work, housing and associated costs (if provided by Cribl), any significant cost to be charged to the candidate, and, if applicable, the hazardous nature of the work;
  • Use recruiters that do not comply with this policy or local labors laws of the country or locality in which the recruiting takes place;
  • Charge recruitment fees to candidates or employees;
  • Procure commercial sex acts while on Cribl business or during activities related to Cribl business;
  • If required by law or contract, fail to provide return transportation, or pay for the cost of return transportation, upon the end of employment;
  • If required by law or contract, fail to provide or arrange housing that meetings housing and safety standards required by applicable law; or
  • If required by law or contract, fail to provide an employment contract, recruitment agreement, or other required work document in writing.
