Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy
Anti-slavery and human trafficking policy (revised 1o/03/2022)
This policy sets out the steps IVSTITIA Limited (“IVSTITIA”) has taken and will continue to take to ensure slavery and human trafficking does not take place in any part of its business. IVSTITIA has a zero tolerance approach to slavery and human trafficking and this policy has been produced pursuant to Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. IVSTITIA expects its suppliers and their supply chains to adopt all reasonable and practical steps to comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
This policy does not form part of any employee’s contract of employment so may be amended from time to time.
IVSTITIA is formed by a passionate group of individuals with a varied background from Law Enforcement, Prison System, Youth Engagement, Restorative Practice, IT and Finance, working together to improve information technology, process and service delivery for people working with sensitive data such as Victim and Offender Information.
We are well known for delivering many user friendly, simple & cost effective solutions that is open to all who work all aspects of Victim Care, Restorative Justice, Community Resolution, Education and Health, never compromising on Security or usability.
Responsibility for this policy
The Board of IVSTITIA has overall responsibility for ensuring this policy complies with our legal and ethical obligations.
The CEO has day to day responsibility for implementing this policy and monitoring its effectiveness in the prevention of slavery and human trafficking.
IVSTITIA encourages all of its employees, consultants, workers and contractors to report any concerns they have about slavery and/or human trafficking affecting the business, even if they turn out to be mistaken.
Steps for the prevention of modern slavery
IVSTITIA regularly monitors its systems to ensure human trafficking is not taking place in any part of our business:
* Use of suppliers who themselves have in place ethical codes of conduct and often these are of a contractual nature.
* Carrying out due diligence where appropriate on suppliers.
* We regularly review our policies, codes of conduct and our working practices to show commitment.
We consider regularly the level of risk of slavery and human trafficking pose to IVSTITIA, its suppliers, contractors and business partners and given the nature of the companies in our supply chain, we consider this risk is very low.
All suppliers, contractors and other business partners will also be made aware of IVSTITIA Limiteds zero tolerance approach to modern slavery and will be expected to adopt the same approach.
