Statement of Intent
This policy sets out Women in Telecoms and Technology (WiTT) Ltd’s commitment to maintaining efforts towards compliance with Modern Slavery Act 2015. This is an integral part of our Governance and Compliance framework and Code of Ethics where we confirm that we will not tolerate or condone abuse of human rights within any part of our business or supply chains and will take seriously any allegations that human rights are not properly respected.
This policy is underpinned and signed off by Women in Telecom & Technology (WiTT) Ltd Board and shall apply to all the organisation’s activities.
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 to exploit them for personal and commercial gain.
Women in Telecoms and Technology (WiTT) Ltd takes compliance with all legal and regulatory matters seriously and therefore maintains a zero- tolerance approach to modern slavery and human trafficking within the business, as well as from our supply chains. Women in Telecoms and Technology (WiTT) Ltd acknowledges the responsibility to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and endeavour to show complete transparency within the company, and is committed to work with its suppliers, contractors and business partners to ensure the obligations of the Act are fulfilled.
Implementation and Monitoring
The Company acknowledges responsibility to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and will ensure transparency within the organisation and with suppliers of goods and services to the organisation.
We expect the same high standards from all our contractors, suppliers, and other business partners.
Women in Telecoms and Technology (WiTT) Ltd will not support or deal with any business knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking. The Women in Telecoms and Technology (WiTT) Ltd board shall take responsibility for implementing this clause.
