Zip-Clip Ltd are proud to have an entirely clean bill of health for ethical behaviour. We achieve this through the adoption of strong core values within all of our company policies and processes.
Each of Zip-Clips employees are aware of the company's code of conduct and are provided with copies of our policies within their employee handbooks.
Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking
Zip-Clip expects everyone working with us or on our behalf to support and uphold the following measures to safeguard against modern slavery:
Modern slavery is a term used to encompass slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour, bonded and child labour and human trafficking. Human trafficking is where a person arranges or facilitates the travel of another person with a view to that person being exploited. Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights.
Zip-Clip have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery in our organisation and across our supply chains.
The prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery in any part of our organisation or supply chain is the responsibility of all those working for us or on our behalf. Workers must not engage in, facilitate or fail to report any activity that might lead to or suggest, a breach of this policy.
We are committed to engaging with our stakeholders and suppliers to address the risk of modern slavery in our operations and supply chain.
We take a risk-based approach to our contracting processes and keep them under review. We assess whether the circumstances warrant the inclusion of specific prohibitions against the use of modern slavery and trafficked labour in our contracts with third parties. Using our risked based approach, we will also assess the merits of writing to suppliers requiring them to comply with our Code of Conduct which sets out the minimum standards required to combat modern slavery and trafficking.
All recruitment agencies, and other third parties supplying workers to our organisation, must confirm their compliance with our code of conduct.
As part of our ongoing risk assessment and due diligence processes, we will consider whether circumstances warrant us carrying out audits of suppliers for their compliance with our Code of Conduct.
If we find that other individuals or organisations working on our behalf have breached this policy, we will ensure that we take appropriate action. This may range from considering the possibility of breaches being remediated and whether that might represent the best outcome for those individuals impacted by the breach to terminating such relationships.
