Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking
Modern slavery and human trafficking are violations of fundamental human rights. They may take various forms, including slavery, bonded and forced labour, sex trafficking, child labour and domestic servitude. These criminal activities all deprive people of liberty to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. For these reasons, modern slavery and human trafficking is a matter of zero tolerance at Walmsley Wilkinson Associates Ltd.
It is the approach of Walmsley Wilkinson Associates Ltd. (WWA) to comply with all laws and regulations relevant to our business in all countries where we operate. Following the implementation of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, WWA is committed to maintaining and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere within our own business or in any of our supply chains.
The Directors of WWA involved in the engagement of suppliers must communicate our zero-tolerance approach as part of due diligence. Prior to approving a new supplier, we will review the controls which they undertake to eliminate modern slavery and human trafficking, particularly regarding goods imported from outside the UK and EU which are potentially more at risk of involving slavery and human trafficking. WWA may terminate our relationship with third parties engaged with us if they do not comply with this policy statement.
The Directors of WWA., must avoid any breaches of this policy. The prevention, detection, and reporting of modern slavery in any part of our business or supply chains is the responsibility of all those working for us or under our control.
The Directors of WWA will raise any concerns about any issue of suspicion of modern slavery in any part of our business or supply chain at the earliest possible stage and advise the relevant government body.
