Modern Slavery Policy

Panel Agency Limited recognises that it should take all reasonable steps to ensure that it has a positive impact on the working conditions of those working directly or indirectly for this business. As such we seek to comply with the obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and applicable legislation.

We seek to ensure that our suppliers share our intention to provide fair and safe working conditions in their own businesses and ask them to provide a similar written declaration.

Our suppliers are asked to confirm their adherence to the following minimum standards:

Child labour

Child labour MUST NOT BE used by a supplier. A child is defined as any person under the age at which the local minimum age law stipulates for work or mandatory schooling. As a general rule,this would be anyone under 15 years of age.

Slavery, Forced, Bonded or Involuntary Labour

There MUST NOT Be any slavery, forced, bonded or involuntary labour in use across a supplier’s operation. To ensure compliance, workers should have the legal right to work at the premises, to leave the premises at the end of their working day and have the freedom to terminate their employment, at any time, in accordance with their contracted notice period.

Human trafficking

There MUST NOT BE any labour who could be considered to have been subject to Human trafficking.

To ensure compliance, workers cannot be recruited through a person who arranges or facilitates the travel of another person. It is irrelevant whether that person has consented to travel.

Health and Safety Standards

Workers MUST BE prevented from exposure to any health and safety hazards that are likely to pose an immediate risk or causing death, permanent injury or illness.

Working Hours

A reliable system for recording working hours and wages for each individual employed MUST BE in place with a Supplier and these should be available for audit.

Business Ethics

There MUST NOT BE any form of bribery offered or used in relation to the Panel Agency Limited Business.
