Modern Slavery Statement
What is Modern Slavery?
Modern slavery is an international crime affecting an estimated 40.3 million
slaves around the world. This growing global issue transcends age, gender and
ethnicities. It includes victims trafficked from overseas and vulnerable people in
the UK who are forced illegally to work against their will across many different
sectors such as agriculture, hospitality, construction, retail and manufacturing.
The Modern Slavery Act 2015 requires commercial organisations supplying
goods or services with a turnover of above £36 million to prepare and publish
an annual ‘Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement'. The Statement must set
out the steps an organisation has taken, if any, during its financial year to
ensure that slavery or human trafficking is not taking place in its supply chain.
Our policy is to assess and address the risks of violations of anti-human
trafficking and anti-modern slavery laws. We adopt procedures that contribute
to ensuring modern slavery does not occur in our business or supply chains and
we expect organisations with whom we do business to adopt and enforce
policies to comply with the legislation.
We have a number of procedures in place that contribute to ensuring modern
slavery does not occur in our business or supply chains.
• Robust recruitment processes in line with UK employment laws, including:
‘right to work' document checks; contracts of employment and checks to
ensure everyone employed is 16 and above.
• Market-related pay and rewards reviewed annually.
