These are summarized below.
Freely Chosen Employment
Employment with CWS Israel and its business partners should be an expression of free choice and there should be no forced, bonded or involuntary labour. CWS Israel and its business partners should allow workers to discontinue employment upon reasonable notice. CWS Israel and its business partners should not hold or otherwise destroy, conceal, confiscate or deny access by employees to their identity or immigration documents, such as government-issued identification, passports or work permits, unless such actions are required by law.
Child Labour Avoidance
CWS Israel and its business partners should not use child labour and CWS Israel and its business partners should adopt procedures to verify and maintain documentation that no workers are younger than the local legal age for completing compulsory education. CWS Israel and its business partners must follow all applicable local laws, regulations and standards concerning working hours and conditions for all workers. The term “child” refers to any person employed under the age of 15 (or 14 where the law of the country permits), or under the age for completing compulsory education, or under the minimum age for employment in the country, whichever is greatest.
CWS Israel and its business partners must, prior to employing any worker, validate and review all relevant documentation to ensure that such worker has the legal right to work in Israel.

CWS Israel and its business partners have the right to establish favourable employment conditions and to maintain effective employee communication programs as a means of promoting positive employee relations that make employees view third-party representation as unnecessary.

They receive a certification of completion at the end of the training that confirms they understand the policy.
