Combatting Modern Slavery Modern Slavery Policy
What is Modern Slavery?
Modern slavery is a criminal offence under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Modern slavery can occur in various forms, including servitude, forced or compulsory labour 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.
This document sets out our policy with the aim of the prevention of opportunities for modern slavery to occur within its businesses or supply chain. This policy’s use of the term “modern slavery” has the meaning given in the Act.
JDAM Security’s Policy on Modern Slavery
JDAM Security have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery.
We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own businesses or those of our suppliers.
The nature of our business means that the risk of modern slavery in our business and first line of our supply chain is low. We have a zero-tolerance approach, to ensure that modern slavery is absent from our own business and that of our first line suppliers. We require all our suppliers to enforce similar policies further down the supply chain.
If a supplier is found to be accepting of slavery in their business or supply chain we will terminate the contract at the earliest opportunity.
How will JDAM Security ensure that Modern Slavery is not occurring in our business and supply chain?
Staff will receive training and guidance explaining what modern slavery is, how to identify it, and how to log concerns.
We will regularly conduct risk assessments to determine which parts of our business and which of our suppliers are most at risk of modern slavery so that interventions can be focused on those areas to mitigate JDAM Security being inadvertently involved in modern slavery.
Our contracts with suppliers will place obligations on them to apply the principles of the Modern Slavery act in their business and supply chains, and we will be able to assure ourselves that they are complying with this.
We will regularly engage with our suppliers both to convey to them our Modern Slavery Policy and to gain an understanding of the measures taken by them to ensure modern slavery is not occurring in their businesses, or supply chains.
How do I raise a concern that modern slavery is occurring in JDAM Security or our supply chain?
In line with the JDAM Security Whistleblowing Policy, concerns must be raised without malice and you must reasonably believe that the information disclosed, and any allegations contained in it are substantially true.
In the first instance, you should normally raise the concern with your supervisor or if the issue concerns the supervisor, with any manager. If it concerns a manager and Responsible Officer, you should raise your concerns with the Director.
The Modern Slavery Act places an obligation on us to publish an annual statement on the steps on the activities that we have performed to eliminate modern slavery in our business and supply chains.
We currently do not fulfil the requirements to issue a statement. However, JDAM Security Ltd acknowledges this is best practice and a copy of our statement can be found here.
