The organisation considers that modern slavery encompasses:
- Human trafficking
- Forced work, through mental or physical threat
- Being owned or controlled by an employer through mental or physical abuse of the threat of abuse
- Being dehumanised, treated as a commodity or being bought or sold as property
- Being physically constrained or to have restriction placed on freedom of movement
The organisation acknowledges its responsibilities in relation to tackling modern slavery. The organisation understands that this requires an ongoing review of its internal practices in relation to its labour force.
The organisation does not enter into business with any other organisation which knowingly supports or is found to involve itself in slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour.
No labour provided to the organisation in the pursuance of the provision of its own services is obtained by means of slavery or human trafficking. The organisation strictly adheres to the minimum standards required in relation to its responsibilities under relevant employment legislation in every country it operates in and, in many cases, exceeds those minimum standards in relation to its employees.
The organisation carries out due diligence processes in relation to ensuring slavery/human trafficking does not take place in its organisation or supply chains, including conducting a review and frequent audits.
The organisation has not, to its knowledge, conducted any business with another organisation which has been found to have involved itself with modern slavery.
The organisation has a suite of policies which further define its stance on modern slavery, including HR policies, Code of Ethics and Code for Anti-Corruption.
Slavery Compliance Officer
The organisation has an HR officer to whom all concerns regarding modern slavery should be addressed and who will then undertake relevant action with regard to the organisation’s obligations.
