Usage conditions apply
JCPenney began its Supplier Legal Compliance Program in 1996 with the rules outlined in this pamphlet. The program ensured that its suppliers complied with all applicable legal requirements as well as consumer and safety laws, acting not only legally but ethically. During the early 1990s many companies began to adopt these standards in response to rising concerns about sweatshop labor.
