Commitment

Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.

We carefully consider our supply chain and keep all aspects under review on a regular basis.

Everyone in the firm is encouraged to report any concerns regarding slavery and /or human trafficking in accordance with our whistleblowing policy.

Any employee who breaches this policy could face disciplinary action, which could result in dismissal for misconduct or gross misconduct.

We may terminate our relationship with other individuals and organisations working on our behalf if they breach this policy.
