Advance IT Group Ltd Anti-Slavery Policy:
covering the anti-slavery and human trafficking

Introduction

This policy applies to all persons working for us or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees at all levels, officers, directors, agents, volunteers, suppliers and contractors.

Advance IT Group Ltd prohibits the use of modern slavery and human trafficking in our operations and supply chain. We will continue to be committed to implementing control systems aimed at ensuring that modern slavery does not taking place anywhere within our organisation or our supply chain. We expect that our suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the standards outlined in this policy.

The Policy

Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

Modern Slavery, as a term, encompasses 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 human rights.

As a company, we expect everyone that works with us or on our behalf to uphold the following measures, and enable us to safeguard against modern slavery:

  • Take a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery both internally and in our supply chains.
  • The responsibility for the prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery in any part of our organisation or supply chain rests with all those working for us, either directly or on our behalf. Workers must not engage in, facilitate or fail to report any activity that might lead to, or suggest, a breach of this policy.
  • We are committed to engaging with our stakeholders and suppliers to address the risk of modern slavery, in our operations and supply chain.
  • With all new contracts with suppliers and third parties, we take a risk based approach when considering the whether our contract needs to include certain provisions against the use of modern slavery and trafficked labour.
  • We also assess the merits, via our risk based approach of requiring suppliers to comply with this policy.
  • Consistent with our risk based approach we may require:
    • Employments and recruitment agenceies and other third parties supplying workers to our organisation to confirm their compliance with this policy.
    • Suppliers engaging workers through a third party to obtain that third parties’ agreement to adhere to the policy.
  • As part of our ongoing risk assessment and due diligence processes we will consider whether circumstances warrant us carrying out audits of suppliers for their compliance with our policy.
  • If we find that other individuals or organisations working on our behalf have breached this policy we will ensure that we take appropriate action. This may range from considering the possibility of breaches being remediated and whether that might represent the best outcome for those individuals impacted by the breach to terminating such relationships.
