We recognise that modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. We have a zero tolerance approach to modern slavery and we are absolutely committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business dealings or in any of our supply chains. Incompliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015, we offer the following statement regarding our efforts to prevent slavery and human trafficking in our supply chain.
In order to provide the services, we work with a range of recruitment agencies and end-clients. Recruitment agencies enter into a written agreement with an end-client whereby it is agreed that the agency will source a worker to provide the required services. The worker consequently agrees to be employed by ‘i4’ who in turn enters into an agreement with the agency to provide the services of the worker. Furthermore, we procure services and goods from third party suppliers to assist with the operation of our business day to day.
i4 regularly evaluates the nature and extent of its exposure to the risk of modern slavery occurring in its supply chain by carrying out risk assessments and due diligence exercises. We enforce a strict code of compliance and do not tolerate slavery and human trafficking within our supply chains. We require our suppliers to comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and to commit to enforcing and maintaining anti-slavery and human trafficking policies. If we find evidence that any supplier/agency is involved in slavery or human trafficking, we will immediately seek to terminate our relationship with the relevant supplier/agency. We invest in educating our staff to recognise the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains.
This statement is made in accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes i4’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31st March 2020.
