Spirit Pharmaceuticals does not condone the use of child labor. The term “child” is defined as anyone younger than 18 years of age. Spirit respects compulsory education laws.
Spirit Pharmaceuticals defines “child labor” as:
- Work that is mentally, physically, socially, or morally dangerous, harmful, and hazardous.
- Work that fails to take into account compulsory schooling.
- Work that prevents children from attending school.
- Work that makes it necessary for children to leave school prematurely.
- Work that requires children to combine school attendance with long and heavy work.
The worst forms of child labor involve enslavement, separation of children from their families, and exposure to hazardous conditions.
