Under the Modern Slavery Act 2015, it is a criminal offence in all of its forms such as, forced or compulsory labour, human trafficking and servitude which deprives a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for their own personal or commercial gain.
This policy sets out ClearView Communications aims in the prevention of opportunities for modern slavery to occur within our own business and that of our suppliers.
To ensure compliance with the act the following measures when appropriate are undertaken
All employees inclusive of contractors or sub-contractors will adopt the Modern Slavery policy and related procedures.
All employees are expected to co-operate to the fullest extent possible in any investigation into suspected breaches of the policy or any related process or procedure and are required to avoid any activity that might lead to, or suggest, a breach of the policy and are encouraged to raise concerns about any issue or suspicion of modern slavery in any part of the organisation or supply chains at the earliest possible stage.
Any violation or disregards for the commitment and responsibilities within this policy will be taken seriously and dealt with through either supply chain management procedures or ClearView Communications disciplinary procedure.
