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 the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.

Our Anti-Slavery policy which contribute to the prevention of slavery and human trafficking include but are not limited to the following:
A recruitment policy including a check on an individual’s Right to Work in the UK to enable us to identify any instances of human trafficking or forced labour. All employees are trained to raise any concerns of modern slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within our business or in any of our supply chains.
Equal opportunities and stringent Disciplinary and Grievance policies to ensure that our ethical standards are met. All of our direct employees are UK based office or managerial staff , who are paid at least the National Living Wage and as such we are confident that there is a very low risk of human slavery or forced labour in our direct employee base.
We have therefore identified that our supply chain is a more likely area where there is a risk that human trafficking and modern slavery could occur. We expect high standards from all of our suppliers and other business partners, and as part of our contracting processes, we include specific prohibitions against the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked labour, or anyone held in slavery or servitude, whether adults or children. In addition, we expect that our suppliers will hold the same values in line with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
We will continue to monitor the modern slavery risk by way of policy, compliance and training, including:
Ensuring new employees are made aware of the company’s approach to Modern Slavery upon induction.
Enhancing existing pre-contract checks to assess the anti-slavery policies / procedures that new suppliers have in place.
This policy applies to all persons working for us or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees at all levels, suppliers and business partners. The Director of Bri-Tek Technologies has overall responsibility for ensuring this policy complies with our legal and ethical obligations, and that all those under our control comply with it.
The Policy Director:Mohamed Hanslod has primary and day-to-day responsibility for implementing this policy, including monitoring its use and effectiveness, dealing with any queries about it, including auditing internal control systems and procedures to ensure they are effective in countering modern slavery and human trafficking.
All Employees are trained to ensure due diligence to raise any concerns about any issue or suspicion of modern slavery or human trafficking in any parts of our business or supply chains of any of our suppliers must notify Mohamed Hanslod of any concerns.
If any suppliers or interested parties upon investigation are found in breach of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 in line with Bri-Tek Technologies Anti-Slavery Policy will cease any form of contractual business with immediate effect.
