AMD’s policies on human rights issues such as harassment, discrimination, working hours, forced/compulsory labor, child labor, compensation and freedom of association are addressed in AMD’s Worldwide Standards of Business Conduct, the EICC Code of Conduct, as well as in AMD’s Human Rights Statement adopted in 2011:
AMD respects and supports proclaimed human rights on a worldwide basis, within our sphere of influence. AMD is committed to respect its employees’ human rights. AMD compensates its workers at or above legal minimums, and complies with all applicable labor laws including minimum working age laws. AMD prohibits discrimination based on race, color, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, ethnicity, disability, religion, union membership or political affiliation. AMD does not use forced labor in providing its services, and prohibits physical abuse or harassment and retaliation against employees reporting harassment amongst its employees. AMD operates in locations where employees have the right to freely associate or not associate with third-party organizations, such as labor unions, and these employees have the right to collectively bargain or not bargain collectively in accordance with local laws. AMD respects those rights and is committed to maintaining a fair and open workplace where employees are treated with dignity and respect, are free from discrimination or the fear of retaliation and can openly share their ideas, concerns or problems on workplace issues with management. AMD’s principles of respect for people are further discussed in AMD’s Worldwide Standards of Business Conduct, and these principles are designed to help AMD ensure that it is not complicit in human rights abuses.
