Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking
Modern slavery is a term used to encompass 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 fundamental human rights.
Optify strictly prohibits the use of modern slavery and human trafficking in our operations and supply chain. We have and will continue to be committed to implementing controls aimed at ensuring that modern slavery is not taking place anywhere within our organisation or in any of our supply chains.
We are a company that expects everyone working with us, or on our behalf, to support and uphold the following measures to safeguard against modern slavery:
- We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery in our organisation and our supply chains.
- The prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery in any part of our organisation or supply chain is the responsibility of all those working for us or on our behalf. Our 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 customers, stakeholders and suppliers to address the risk of modern slavery in our operations and supply chain.
- Through our internal risk assessments and due diligence processes we may require:
- employment and recruitment agencies and other third parties supplying workers to our organisation to confirm their compliance with our policy.
- suppliers engaging workers through a third party to obtain that third parties’ agreement to adhere to our policy.
- As part of our ongoing risk assessments and due diligence processes 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 any breaches being remediated to terminating any such relationships.
