Firestone Natural Rubber Company does not hire anyone under 18 and has a zero-tolerance policy on Child Labor. The Firestone policy of hiring only workers who are at least 18 years of age, exceeds the Liberian labor law requirements by two years.
We communicate our zero-tolerance policy to all employees through their supervisors, at employee meetings, through signs posted around the property, through the Firestone Radio Station, seminars, and through their elected union representatives. Firestone regularly conducts workshops for all operating departments to reinforce the importance of and ensure full compliance with this policy. Employees found violating this policy face termination.
