Modern slavery – commonly called ‘slavery’, ‘child labour’ and/or ‘human-trafficking’ – is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as:
- Forced and compulsory labour and;
- Human trafficking.
All of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. These are heinous activities that we will never engage in or condone as a business, and that we condemn in others who engage in them.
We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and will not engage in business of any description with any business who does so. We are also committed to ensuring there is transparency in our own business and in our approach to tackling modern slavery throughout our supply chains, consistent with our disclosure obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
If we discover that any business or individual associated in any way with our business is engaged in, or otherwise supporting, and/or condoning or failing to prevent such activities, when such activities are within their control and/or influence, we will cease all connection with them. We will also consider whether we are under any reporting or other legal duty in respect of this disassociation and our reasons for it.
Prevention of these prohibited activities
The prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery in any part of our business or supply chains is the responsibility of all those working for us or under our control. Team members are required to avoid any activity that might lead to, or suggest, a breach of this policy.
We also encourage our team to raise concerns about any issue, or suspicion, of modern slavery in any parts of our business or supply chains of any suppliers at the earliest possible stage.
We do not anticipate that any circumstance would arise in the operation of our business activities. However, we invest in making the appropriate checks on all team members and suppliers to be certain who is working for, or on behalf of, us and that they are permitted to work and paid fully and fairly for what they do.
All our team members are paid fairly according to legal requirements and market practice, the arrangements for which are properly and lawfully set out in their written contracts of employment.
The health and safety of all of our employees and workers is also of paramount importance to DOMO Group Ltd and we take our legal obligations very seriously, including in relation to working hours, rest breaks, and holidays.
All employees are requested to read this policy and understand it, raising any questions to the People & Operations team if they do not.
Compliance obligations for our Suppliers
We expect all of our suppliers to share a similarly uncompromising commitment to the same levels of compliance as we have set out in this policy.
As a condition of our trading relationship, any supplier to our business will be asked to confirm that they comply with all relevant legal obligations and industry best practices applicable to their business, including those relating to modern slavery. In addition to this statement of self-certification, we will also ask for specific confirmation that our suppliers do not, in any part or aspect of their business, or business relationships, engage in slavery, forced labour or servitude, child labour, or human trafficking.
We will take action to terminate existing contracts with, and to pursue appropriate legal remedies against, any suppliers who we subsequently discover to have been operating in breach of this policy.
