At Four Corners Property Trust, Inc. (“FCPT” or “we”) we are committed to respecting human rights. We believe all persons are entitled to be treated with dignity and respect and have adopted the following Human Rights Policy (the “Policy”), which is aligned with the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
In accordance with our human resource policies, our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and all applicable laws and regulations in the communities in which we operate, we aim to institute sound human rights practices within, and outside our operations that support responsible corporate citizenship.
We are committed to equal opportunity in workplaces that are free from discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, sex, color, national or social origin, ethnicity, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, political opinion, or any other status protected by applicable law.
Workplace Safety and Security
The safety and health of our team members is one of our top priorities. We must not only comply with applicable safety and health laws and regulations, but also address and remediate identified risks of accidents, injury, and health impacts. Our policies regarding health and safety are provided to our team members and apply to every FCPT employee. Each of our team members is entitled to a copy of our Employee Handbook, which sets forth detailed instructions regarding safety issues.
We are also committed to a workplace that is free from violence, harassment, intimidation, and other unsafe or disruptive conditions due to internal and external threats.
We prohibit the use of all forms of forced labor, whether prison labor, indentured labor, bonded labor, military labor, modern forms of slavery and any form of human trafficking.
We have a no tolerance policy for team members, suppliers, vendors and tenants in violation of our company standards regarding slavery, human trafficking and child labor and anyone in violation of those standards is subject to termination.
We comply with all local minimum working age laws and requirements and prohibit the use of child labor.
We compensate our team members competitively relative to the industry and local labor market, and in accordance with applicable legal standards. We work to ensure full compliance with applicable wage, work hours, overtime, and benefits and other labor laws. We are committed to paying living wages under humane conditions. Each of our associates is entitled to clear, written information about their employment conditions with respect to wages before they enter employment and as appropriate throughout their term of employment.
Right to Water
We recognize the right to water as a fundamental human right. We respect the human need for sustainable water supplies, safe drinking water, and protection of both ecosystems and communities through proper sanitation.
Our team members should not accept any direction by their supervisor that is inconsistent with this Policy. If there is ever a concern that anyone connected with FCPT may have engaged or is about to engage in any conduct in violation of this Policy, our team members should promptly bring the matter to the attention of our head of Human Resources. If a team member does not believe that talking to our head of Human Resources is appropriate, if they are uncomfortable doing so, or if it does not result in a response with which they are comfortable, then they should contact our General Counsel or anonymously through our whistleblower hotline as described in our Employee Handbook.
This Policy is overseen by FCPT’s Nominating and Governance Committee.
