Modern slavery policy
Modern Slavery Policy
ADT Workplace Ltd are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in any part of our business or in our supply chains. This statement is made in accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and reflects our commitment to always acting ethically and with integrity. The Policy sets out effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere within our supply chains.
We require all our suppliers to:
• Provide their employees with good working conditions and fair treatment
• Respect workers’ human rights and comply fully with all applicable laws
• Ensure all work is voluntary, and not done under any threat of penalties or sanctions
• Not require workers to pay any deposits for work, and employers must not keep original identity documents
• Ensure that workers are free to leave work at any time, with all salary owed to be paid
• Comply with the Modern Slavery Act (Transparency in Supply Chains) Regulations 2015
• Implement controls to prevent modern slavery
• Notify the business immediately if they become aware of any incidents of modern slavery within their supply chains.
ADT consider ourselves to be a ‘low risk’ business with regard to slavery and human trafficking. However, we foster a culture that encourages the identification and reporting of any such risks within our business.
Partners are encouraged that if they have any concerns about modern slavery within our supply chain, they should be raised as soon as possible their line manager. ADT will initially telephone the supplier and discuss it with them to ensure that they understand the severity of the issue and gain an understanding as to how the matter has arisen.
Alternatively, we may wish to contact the Modern Slavery Helpline: 0800 0121 700
We recruit all our employees either directly or through recruitment agencies who are members of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation. We do not recruit from outside the UK or use agency workers.
All Partners are required to undertake an e-learning courses to ensure that relevant understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking are retained within the business and supply chains.
