Global Human Trafficking Policy

Global Human Trafficking Policy

We respect and protect individual human rights and comply with the employment laws in every location in which we do business. All employees are to be provided with safe, secure and humane working conditions and fair wages. Parsons has zero tolerance for forced labor, involuntary servitude, child labor, commercial exploitation, or human trafficking. We expect our subcontractors, suppliers and business partners to uphold these same standards and will not knowingly do business with those who do not. Parsons Federal markets have additional requirements as laid out in the Federal-specific Parsons’ Human Trafficking Policy and Guidebook. If you have reason to believe any form of exploitation is occurring on any of our projects, promptly report concerns to the Ethics Hotline or other reporting avenues per the Policy. This policy applies to Parsons Corporation and all Parsons businesses and subsidiaries worldwide, including joint ventures and similar partnerships managed by Parsons.
