What provisions are schools required to include in their codes of conduct?

Affiliates are encouraged to adopt a code as strong in all respects as the WRC model code (which, for example, includes a provision requiring payment of a living wage). However, affiliates are not required to do so. The code of a college or university is sufficient to meet WRC affiliation requirements if it provides basic protection for workers in each of the following areas – wages, hours of work and overtime compensation, freedom of association, workplace safety and health, women’s rights, child labor and forced labor, harassment and abuse in the workplace, non-discrimination and compliance with local law. The Worker Rights Consortium will use the model code of conduct below as the basis for its investigations.
