Modern Slavery Policy

Asset 1

1. Bennett Staff Bureau is committed to eliminating modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labour, and similar human rights abuses.

2. Bennett Staff Bureau is committed to ensuring that its staff and any workers it supplies (directly or indirectly) are not subject to behavior or threats that may amount to modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labor, and similar human rights abuses.

3. Bennett Staff Bureau provides appropriate training and awareness information for all of its staff. (including the recent video published by the GLAA)

4. In particular:

  • All of our staff receive awareness-raising information around issues involving modern
    slavery and human trafficking, so that they can bring any concerns they have to the
    attention of management.

5. Any staff, workers, or other parties are strongly encouraged to report any concerns or suspicions that they might have to the company Directors.

6. Reports surrounding these issues are taken extremely seriously by our board of directors who are committed to ensuring that all investigations shall be prompt and effective. If our investigations reveal any issues, we are committed to taking appropriate action, including but not limited to:

  • Passing details to appropriate law enforcement bodies.

7. We regularly monitor our risks in this area through the use of relevant key performance indicators, including:

  • The amount of time spent on audits, re-audits, spot checks, and related due diligence,
  • The level of modern slavery training and awareness amongst our staff.

8. We would also recommend reading this in conjunction with our other policies, including our:

  • Corporate social responsibility policy
  • Whistleblowing policy
  • Anti-bribery / corruption policy

This policy was adopted in August 2016, after being agreed by our board of directors.
