Social Responsibility

As part of our on-going efforts to ensure that all Ohio State licensed products are made in socially compliant factories and that all workers are treated fairly, we are proud members of both the Fair Labor Association (FLA) and the Worker Rights Consortium (WRC).

Standard licensees are expected to maintain an active membership in the Fair Labor Association, which involves having knowledge of your product sourcing and supply chain.

Standard licensees are also expected to agree to our Code of Conduct and obtain agreement from their factories as well, through signature of our Independent Contractor Agreement (sometimes also called a Manufacturer’s Agreement).

We hope you share our commitment to providing a safe, fair and healthy working environment for all those involved in the production of Ohio State products.
