TUXE’s overall goal is to ensure efficient and fair market participation, to improve customer satisfaction and to develop the competencies and the professional growth of the Company’s human resources.

This commitment further requires that third parties engaged by the Company in various capacitates, carry out activities and adhere to a similar set of values. 


Codes of Conduct

United States corporations have adopted corporate codes of conduct for a variety of reasons, ranging from a sense of “social responsibility” to pressure from competitors, labor unions, the media, consumer groups, shareholders, and worker rights advocates. The Code of Conduct outlines the commitments and ethical responsibilities that must be observed by all managing Directors, employees and external collaborators while managing the Company’s activities and carrying out business operations.


Child Labor

The term “child labor” generally refers to any economic activity performed by a person under the age of 15. Not all work performed by children is detrimental or exploitative. Child labor does not usually refer to “light work” after school or legitimate apprenticeship opportunities for young people. Nor does it refer to young people helping in the family business or on the family farm. Rather, the “child labor” of concern is generally employment that prevents effective school attendance, and which is often performed under conditions hazardous to the physical and mental health of the child. TUXE is not and will not be part of this practice under any circumstances.
