Modern Slavery Policy
This policy outlines the approach taken by 4ways to comply with the requirements relating to Modern Slavery towards our employees, service providers and service users.
The statement applies to 4ways Healthcare Ltd.
The Group considers that modern slavery encompasses:
• Human trafficking;
• Forced work, through mental or physical threat;
• Being owned or controlled by an employer through mental or physical abuse of the threat of abuse;
• Being dehumanised, treated as a commodity or being bought or sold as property;
• Being physically constrained or to have restriction placed on freedom of movement.
4ways Healthcare Ltd acknowledges its responsibilities in relation to tackling modern slavery and commits to complying with the provisions in the Modern Slavery Act 2015. 4ways Healthcare Ltd understands that this requires an ongoing review of both its internal practices in relation to its labour force and, additionally, its supply chains.
4ways Healthcare Ltd does not enter into business with any other organisation, in the United Kingdom or abroad, which knowingly supports or is found to involve itself in slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour.
No labour provided to 4ways Healthcare Ltd in the pursuance of the provision of its own services is obtained by means of slavery or human trafficking. The Company strictly adheres to the minimum standards required in relation to its responsibilities under relevant employment legislation and in many cases exceeds those minimums in relation to its employees.
4ways Healthcare Ltd carries out due diligence processes in relation to ensuring slavery and/or human trafficking does not take place in its organisation or supply chains, including conducting a review of the controls of its suppliers.
4ways Healthcare Ltd has not, to its knowledge, conducted any business with another organisation which has been found to have involved itself with modern slavery.
4ways Healthcare Ltd has a Slavery Compliance Officer, to whom all concerns regarding modern slavery should be addressed, and who will then undertake relevant action with regard to 4ways Healthcare Ltd obligations in this regard.
This statement is made in pursuance of Section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2010 and will be reviewed for each financial year.
