Salisburys Modern Slavery Policy

Our commitment to the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015

Salisbury & Co is committed to the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the abolition of modern slavery and human trafficking. As an equal-opportunities employer, Salisbury & Co is committed to creating and ensuring a non-discriminatory and respectful working environment for its staff. Salisbury & Co wants all its staff to feel confident that they can expose wrongdoing without any risk to themselves.

Salisbury & Co recruitment and people management processes are designed to ensure that all prospective employees are legally entitled to work in the UK and to safeguard employees from any abuse or coercion once in our employment.

Salisbury & Co does not enter into business with any organisation, in the United Kingdom or abroad, which knowingly supports or is found to be involved in slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour.

Salisbury & Co maintains the following policies which are accessible to all staff:

  • Standards of Performance & Behaviour at work
  • Whistleblowing policy
  • Bullying and Harassment policy
  • Diversity & Inclusion policy
  • Recruitment and Selection policy

Our Supply Chain

Due to the nature of our business, Salisbury & Co assess itself to have a low risk of Modern Slavery in our business and supply chains.

Our supply chains are limited, and we procure goods and services from a restricted range of UK suppliers, predominantly within the North Wales area.

Embedding the principles

The principles will continue to be embedded by the following activities:

  • Ensure that consideration of the modern slavery risks and prevention are added to Salisbury & Co’ policy review process as an employer and procurer of goods and service.
  • Ensure Salisbury & Co contract terms and conditions include references to modern slavery and human trafficking.
  • Continue to take action to embed a zero-tolerance policy towards modern slavery.
  • Ensure that staff involved in buying/procurement and the recruitment and deployment of staff are fully aware of their responsibility in adhering to modern slavery and ethical employment practices.

This statement has been approved by the Salisbury & Co Board of Directors and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 30th August 2020. This statement will be reviewed and updated annually.
