We have a Code of Conduct on Ethical Trading, which sets out our policy on legislation, child labour, conditions of employment, wages and benefits, health and safety and the environment. The Code of Conduct has recently been updated to include our policy on human trafficking.
We will never pay wages into an account not registered to our employee and will actively look for signs of employees being trafficked. We will monitor employees to try and evaluate their wellbeing. Any signs that may indicate an issue will be investigated and where required, information we be passed on the relevant authorities.
We will assess any instances of non-compliance on a case by case basis and will then tailor remedial action appropriately. We will only trade with those who fully comply with this policy or those who are taking verifiable steps towards compliance.
The company will provide a copy of its slavery and human trafficking policy to anyone making a written request. The policy will be posted out within 30 days of receipt of request.
This statement has been approved by our Board of Directors, who will review and update it as necessary on an annual basis.
