Modern Slavery Policy
This statement has been published in accordance with Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. It sets out the steps taken by the Texthelp Group (collectively “the Company”) to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chains.
The Texthelp Group, including Texthelp Ltd. and all its subsidiary companies (collectively “the Company”) does not tolerate slavery or human trafficking within its business operations and takes a risk-based approach regarding its supply chains. Texthelp supports the enactment and enforcement of human trafficking laws that recognise and protect victims while holding traffickers accountable. Texthelp operates a whistleblowing policy which encourages staff to report any wrongdoing, this extends to human rights violations, like Modern Slavery
Texthelp has business relationships with software vendors and distributors based
predominantly within Europe and the USA. The software business sector is not considered one most ‘at risk’ and no Texthelp subsidiary company has intricate supply chains (or partnerships) with businesses based in impoverished regions of the world, where labour laws are non-existent or are not enforced.
Texthelp employees have the necessary documentation to legally work in the UK (or the country in which they are employed) and no-one under the legal minimum age for
admission to work is employed by Texthelp.
Texthelp does not support or deal with any business knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking. We understand that Modern Slavery risk is not static, we actively monitor our supply chains and undertake selective due diligence, we will immediately implement risk mitigation and remedial measures should the situation change.
Any breach of this policy will be deemed to be gross misconduct resulting in immediate dismissal in the case of an employee or will be considered as a material breach of contract in the case of a third party business partner and the contract will be immediately terminated.
