UNC Licensing Labor Code

In February 1999, the University adopted a labor code designed to ensure fair working conditions in factories where its logoed goods are produced. The University has since become affiliated with two organizations, the Worker Rights Consortium (WRC) and the Fair Labor Association (FLA), as a means of implementing and complying with the code and its workplace standards. In addition, the University requires its licensees to disclose factory locations where logoed goods are produced; lists of these sites are maintained at the FLA and WRC websites. UNC-Chapel Hill licensees are required to affiliate with the FLA.

Licensing Labor Code Advisory Committee

The University’s Licensing Labor Code Advisory Committee (LLCAC), a committee composed of faculty, students, and administrators, responds to questions of the Code’s implementation and enforcement. Working with committed licensees, the Worker Rights Consortium, the Fair Labor Association, and other interested parties, the University has helped to remedy violations to the University’s Code.

The documents below relate to the work of the committee and are categorized by academic year.
