Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

Modern slavery is a term used to encompass slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour, bonded, 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.

Stiller Warehousing and Distribution Ltd, expects everyone working with us or on our behalf to support and uphold the following measures to safeguard against modern slavery:

  • We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery in our organisation and 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 a risked based approach, we will also assess the merits of writing to suppliers requiring them to comply with the Modern-Day Slavery Act, which sets out the minimum requirements to combat modern slavery and trafficking.
  • Consistent with our risk-based approach we may require:
    • employment and recruitment agencies and other third parties supplying workers to our organisation to confirm their compliance with the Modern-Day Slavery Act
    • Suppliers engaging workers through a third party to obtain that third parties’ agreement to adhere to the Act.
  • As part of our ongoing due diligence, we will consider whether circumstances warrant us carrying out audits of suppliers for their compliance with the Act.
  • Whistleblowing: The Company encourages employees to report any matters that is considered to relate to Modern Slavery or Trafficking to the business directors.
  • Employees who report this information will be protected by the business and will not be subject to any detriment due to reporting the matter in good faith.
  • 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.
  • We have training available for all staff, visitors, and contractors in relation to our Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy.
