Procedures in relation to Modern Day Slavery.
Staff Awareness and Training
Our own staff will be made aware of the issues of Modern Day Slavery and be vigilant for potential suppliers offering goods at massively reduced prices, manufactured in a country outside the EU, offered from an agency in the UK which might highlight very low wage structures, a heavy reliance on numbers of employees in low wage economies, companies with a high number of non-UK staff employed in the UK,.
As part of our supply chain assessment, we will conduct a survey of a number of our suppliers annually in relation to their employment practices and review their pricing, etc to see if there are any issues of concern.
