This policy statement reflects our approach towards the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking within its business and supply chain in compliance with the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015.
We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships. We are opposed to slavery and human trafficking in any form. We apply the following requirements to our own operations and to our supply chain and business partners:
• To comply with all applicable legislation in the jurisdiction in which business is conducted;
• To adhere to good employment practices;
• To take practical steps to verify whether their supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking
We meet our commitments by implementing the below labour rights and modern slavery principles into our policies, procedures and requirements to our contractors and suppliers:
Terms: Workers have clear, written employment terms before deployment, and in line with terms at point of recruitment, which are consistently upheld.
Legal status: Workers are legally authorized to work for their employer and possess the necessary visas, work permits, and any similar legal documentary requirements.
Protection of Young Persons: Workers below 15 or the legal minimum working age (whichever is higher) are not hired, either directly or indirectly.
Passports and papers: Worker passports, travel identification or work authorization papers are notwithheld. Workers may choose to lodge their passports or other papers with employers if they genuinely consent to doing so and can freely access them upon request without penalty or delay.
Free movement: Workers are free to terminate employment upon reasonable notice without penalty. Workers are not prevented from leaving worksites or employment, except for reasonable safety or security reasons.
Fees: Employers are responsible for all costs and fees associated with recruitment of workers regardless of the manner or location of the imposition or collection of the fee.
Pay: Workers are paid on time, as per employment terms. Wages, benefits and overtime rates meet, as a minimum, national legal standards. Wages paid and hours worked are accurately recorded through a time keeping system.
Working time and rest: Workers are not required to work unreasonable hours, hours beyond legal limits, or without appropriate breaks and defined leave periods.
Grievance: A grievance process is in place by which workers can make complaints, including anonymously, and receive appropriate responses and timely updates on the status of concerns. Concerns may be raised through any process (formal or informal) without fear of retaliation, discrimination or harassment.
Working conditions: Workers enjoy a safe and hygienic working environment.
Discrimination and harassment: There is no discrimination in employment practices based on race, caste, national origin, religion, age, disability, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, union membership or political affiliation or any other characteristic prohibited by law. Physical abuse or discipline, the threat of physical abuse, sexual or other harassment and verbal abuse or other forms of intimidation are not tolerated.
Freedom of Association: In conformance with local law, where workers choose to be represented by trade unions or works councils, employers will cooperate in good faith with the bodies that the employees collectively choose to represent them.
Controls: Contractors, suppliers and develop and maintain adequate processes and controls to implement, communicate, monitor and remediate identified deficiencies with regard to the above, including in their supply chains.
