Policies Addressing Slavery & Human Trafficking
We are resolutely dedicated to ensuring that no form of slavery or human trafficking exists within any segment of our business or supply chains. This commitment is reflected in our internal policies, covering areas such as working time, rest breaks, night working, annual leave, holiday pay, staff welfare, and recruitment of temporary workers.
Company Due Diligence Processes for Slavery & Human Trafficking: Employees
We conduct internal audits aligned with our policies, resolving any identified non-conformances promptly and notifying the Directors. Notably, there were no non-conformities logged in the previous financial year, and all our policies have been reviewed to comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Company Due Diligence Processes for Slavery & Human Trafficking: Suppliers
Our suppliers must adhere to our policies on slavery and human trafficking, a stipulation confirmed in the service level agreements we sign. Annual audits are conducted on our suppliers by our internal audit managers to ensure compliance.
New processes undergo rigorous risk assessments that are recorded on a risk register, reviewed, and maintained by Day Webster’s Executive team.
Measurement of Effectiveness
We are committed to continually enhancing our dedication to the Modern Slavery Act and regularly review our processes for improvement. Our HR team diligently records and measures the effectiveness of these processes, identifying areas for enhancement year on year.
Training for Staff
Our employees are mandated to comply with all legal requirements and internal policies. Our internal employee handbook clearly outlines procedures to follow in the event of identifying a case of modern slavery and the necessary contacts to report such occurrences.
