More Than Builders… Your Construction Partner
CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY
MODERN SLAVERY POLICY

 

Modern slavery is an unquestionable and indefensible violation of an individual’s basic human rights which encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced or compulsory labour.

 

CField Construction Ltd. & CField CS Ltd, recognise that it has a moral and social responsibility to take a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery in all forms.

 

We are committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in our activities, and to ensuring, as far as we are able, that our supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.

 

The aim of this policy statement is to communicate our responsibilities and highlight the risks that modern slavery and trafficking pose to our business, clients and supply chain. This policy applies to all persons working for CField, or on our behalf, in any capacity, including employees at all levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, volunteers, graduates; and our contractors, external consultants, agencies, third-party representatives, and suppliers.

 

To identify and mitigate the risks of slavery and human trafficking, CField Construction take the following approach to the procurement of labour, goods and services:

 

·         Identification of issues and risks

·         Collaboration with our clients, peers and suppliers

·         Clear definition and contractual communication of our expectations

·         The resolution of challenges through training and supplier development

·         Compulsory training for all staff and leadership teams on slave labour and human trafficking risks and how to spot the signs of potential issues

 

The company will:

·         Not knowingly support or deal with any business involved in slavery or human trafficking

·         Monitor suppliers and subcontractors with the aim of checking that fair wages are paid and that working conditions are acceptable, and that employees are free to leave their employment.

·         Monitor that all personnel are paid appropriately and at least the minimum wage set by the government, and are free to leave their employment

·         Check that all personnel are entitled to work in the UK by reviewing documentation before commencement of work

·         Encourage the reporting of concerns and the protection of whistle blowers. Where staff have concerns around issues of forced labour, human rights, recruitment practices or exploitation, they are encouraged and expected to report concerns to management. All reports will be investigated by the Quality Manager and CFO in the strictest confidence.

 

Any staff member who breaches this policy may face disciplinary action, which could result in dismissal for misconduct or gross misconduct.

 

This policy is in compliance with Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and will be reviewed annually.
