Modern Slavery Policy
Purposes and Aim
The Company recognises that it has a responsibility to take a robust approach to slavery and human trafficking.
Following the implementation of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 the Company is committed to maintaining and enforcing effective systems and controls to prevent slavery and human trafficking in its corporate activities and to ensuring that its supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.
Modern slavery is a criminal activity and a violation of human rights. The deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain is unacceptable. For these reasons, slavery and human trafficking are a matter of zero tolerance within this Company.
This policy applies to all members, employees, agents, consultants and those parties in the Company supply chain wherever in the world they operate. Any reported breach of this policy will be investigated and may lead to legal proceedings or disciplinary action which subsequently could result in employee dismissal.
The Company commits to taking all necessary steps to ensure the workforce used and suppliers engaged is free from the effects associated with modern slavery, human trafficking, forced or bonded/imprisoned labour.
The Company will conduct right to work checks on every employee within its employment at induction. We expect all our supply chain to perform the same checks in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006.
Responsibility for reporting incidents of slavery
The detection and reporting of slavery is the responsibility of every employee within the Company. Any concerns about any issue or suspicion of modern slavery in any part of our business or supply chain must be raised at the earliest possible stage.
