The Board and management of Eviid, the head office of which is located in Birchwood 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.
The policy is subject to continuous, systematic review and improvement.
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. Any agreements with clients will contain language similar that protects the fund.
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.
If any user is found to have breached this policy, they may be subject to Eviid’s disciplinary procedure as laid out in the company Staff Handbook. If a criminal offence is considered to have been committed further action may be taken to assist in the prosecution of the offender(s).
