MODERN SLAVERY POLICY
Last updated: 25/10/22
The purpose of this document is to outline the Resulting Anti-Slavery & Human Trafficking Policy.
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. Resulting 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 systems and controls aimed at ensuring that modern slavery is not taking place anywhere within our organisation.
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 expect everyone working with us or on our behalf to support and uphold the following measures to safeguard against modern slavery:
- 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.
- A commitment to engaging with our stakeholders and suppliers to address the risk of modern slavery in our operations and supply chain.
- Taking a risk based approach to our contracting processes and keeping them under review. This will require assessing whether circumstances warrant the inclusion of specific prohibitions against the use of modern slavery and trafficked labour in our contracts with third parties, and using a risked based approach to assess the merits of writing to suppliers requiring them to comply the Resulting Ltd Code of Conduct, which sets out the minimum standards required to combat modern slavery and trafficking.
- Consistency with this risk based approach may require:
- employment and recruitment agencies and other third parties supplying workers to our organisation to confirm their compliance with our Code of Conduct
- Suppliers engaging workers through a third party to obtain that third parties’ agreement to adhere to the Code
- As part of ongoing risk assessment and due diligence processes, consider whether circumstances warrant carrying out audits of suppliers for their compliance with our Code of Conduct.
- If we find that other individuals or organisations working on our behalf have breached this policy 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.
