Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy
This policy applies to all persons working for us or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees at all levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, volunteers, agents, contractors and suppliers.
Tech Sure (UK) Ltd strictly prohibits the use of modern slavery and human trafficking in our operations and supply chain. We have and will continue to be committed to implementing controls aimed at ensuring that modern slavery is not taking place anywhere within our organisation or supply chain. We expect that our suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards.
Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking
Modern slavery is a term used to encompass slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour, bonded and child labour and human trafficking. Human trafficking is where a person arranges or facilitates the travel of another person with a view to that person being exploited. Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights.
We shall be a company that expects everyone working with us or on our behalf to support and uphold the following measures to safeguard against modern slavery:
- We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery in our organisation and our suppliers.
- The prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery in any part of our organisation’s operations is the responsibility of all those working for us or on our behalf.
- Workers must not engage in, facilitate or fail to report any activity that might be a breach of this policy.
- We are committed to engaging with our customers and suppliers to address the risk of modern slavery.
- We take a risk based approach to our contracts and we assess whether the circumstances warrant the inclusion of specific prohibitions regarding the potential for modern slavery and trafficked labour. Using our risked based approach we may contact suppliers requiring them to comply with our Policy, which sets out the minimum standards required to combat modern slavery and trafficking.
- Consistent with our risk based approach we may require:
- Employment and recruitment agencies and other third parties supplying workers to our organisation to confirm their compliance with our Policy.
- Suppliers engaging workers through a third party to obtain that third parties’ agreement to adhere to the Policy.
- As part of our ongoing risk assessment and due diligence process we may carry out audits of suppliers for their compliance with our Policy.
- If we find that other individuals or organisations working on our behalf have breached this Policy we will take appropriate action, up to and including the possibility of terminating such relationships.
