Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy

28th April 2024

Issue 6 | March 2024

This policy applies to all persons working for Clive Richardson Limited (CRL) or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees at all levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, volunteers, agents, sub-contractors, and suppliers.

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.

CRL 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 systems and controls aimed at ensuring that modern slavery is not taking place anywhere within our organisation or in any of our supply chains. We expect that our suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards.

Commitments

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 supply chains.
  • The prevention, detection, and reporting of modern slavery in any part of our organisation or supply chain 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 lead to, or suggest, a breach of this policy.
  • We are committed to engaging with our stakeholders and suppliers to address the risk of modern slavery in our operations and supply chain.
  • We take a risk-based approach to our contracting processes and keep them under review. We assess whether the circumstances warrant the inclusion of specific prohibitions against the use of modern slavery and trafficked labour in our contracts with third parties. Using our risk-based approach, we will also require suppliers and sub-contractors to comply with our policies and procedures in this regard, which set out the minimum standards required to combat modern slavery and trafficking.
  • Consistent with our risk-based approach we require:
  • Employment and recruitment agencies and other third parties supplying workers to our organisation to confirm their compliance with our policies and procedures.
  • Suppliers engaging workers through a third party to obtain that third parties’ agreement to adhere to the policies and procedures.
  • As part of our ongoing risk assessment and due diligence processes, we will be carrying out audits of suppliers for their compliance with our policies and procedures.

 

If we find that, other individuals or organisation’s working on our behalf have breached these policies and procedures we will ensure that we take appropriate action. This may range from considering the possibility of breaches being remediated and whether that might represent the best outcome for those individuals impacted by the breach to terminating such relationships.

This policy is communicated to all employees.

Signed: Priscilla McFarland, Managing Director / General Manager
