Modern Slavery Act Statement (for financial year July 2019/June 2020)
Definition: What is Modern Slavery?
Modern Slavery is a term used to encapsulate both offences in the Modern Slavery Act: slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour; and human trafficking. Both have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.
As a recruitment business providing temporary, long term and permanent workers and contractors to the construction, maintenance and engineering markets, Daniel Owen Ltd operates a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and is fully committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all business dealings and relationships.
The company has established internal systems and enforcement controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere within its own business or supply chain. The Company recognises its responsibility to be alert to the risks of modern slavery and to ensure that its workers are not being exploited; that they are safe and that the relevant legislation relating to wage, human rights and international standards are adhered to, including freedom of movement and communications.
Whilst workers’ health and safety, working hours and welfare at work remains the responsibility of the hiring client whilst on site or at work, Daniel Owen Ltd recognises its duty to act on any concerns raised by the worker and employees receive training on reporting any issues that may be raised with them in this respect.
