Our Effectiveness in combatting Slavery and Human Trafficking
As an organisation we are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships. We are committed to complying with the MSA and improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking.
Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common a deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to explain them for personal or commercial gain. We take a zero-tolerance approve to such slavery and human trafficking in or around our organisation. We comply with all the applicable employment legislation relating to the employee terms and conditions and have the following internal policies to ensure that we conduct business in an ethical and transparent manner:
Recruitment – CPS conducts employment checks on new employees including eligibility to work in the UK to safeguard against human trafficking or individuals being forced to work against their will.
Whistleblowing Policy – CPS has a whistleblowing policy so that employees can raise any concerns they may have without fear of reprisals.
We continue to focus on raising internal awareness to enable the relevant members of our business to understand the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act and to give them the tools to flag potential issues.
