Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy
Our staff have worked with the emancipated victims of human trafficking and modern slavery. Therefore they can testify to the misery and suffering it causes.
Furthermore Bolder Training are committed in doing our bit to stamp out modern day slavery. We are doing this by making public our policy. If you would like more information or guidance on training your employees and create your own policy drop us a line here.
Overview of Act
The Modern Slavery Act 2015 came into effect in March 2015 and is the first of its kind in Europe. The legislation enhances the support and protection for victims of human trafficking and enslavement. Bolder Training Ltd is wholly supportive of the Act. Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labor and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.
Bolder Training Ltd Policy Statement
We will continue to assess our current and future supply chains to identify areas of high risk in relation to modern slavery. We will in all circumstances report any findings to the appropriate authority. While no areas of concern have been highlighted however our commitment will continue.
Responsibility for the policy
Our director has overall responsibility for ensuring this policy complies with our legal and ethical obligations. Our managers at all levels are responsible for ensuring those reporting to them, understand and comply with this policy and are given adequate and regular training on it and the issue of modern slavery.
Processes to Combat Trafficking and Slavery
We are committed to providing our staff with a salary which, as a minimum, meets the National Living Wage. We also offer the required statutory leave entitlement. Furthermore, we ensure all our staff have provided their National Insurance Number, or Working Visa if they are not British nationals. We will perform any necessary checks prior to their employment to determine their eligibility to work in the UK. By checking our employees’ NI Numbers or Working Visa’s we know they are legally eligible to work in the UK, and that their salary will be monitored by HMRC.
This policy will be revised on annual basis or when new legislation is passed.
