Modern Slavery Policy

  1. Harvey Lawrence Limited is committed to eliminating modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labour, and similar human rights abuses.
  2. Harvey Lawrence Limited is committed to ensuring that its staff and any workers it supplies (directly or indirectly) are not subject to behaviour or threats that may amount to modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labour, and similar human rights abuses.
  3. Harvey Lawrence Limited provides appropriate training and awareness information for all of its staff.
  4. In particular:

  • All of our staff receive awareness-raising information around issues involving modern slavery and human trafficking, so that they can bring any concerns they have to the attention of management.
  1. Any staff, workers or other parties are strongly encouraged to report any concerns or suspicions that they might have to identify an appropriate contact(s), by name or by role.
  2. Reports surrounding these issues are taken extremely seriously by our Director Sarah Harvey who is committed to ensuring that all investigations shall be prompt and effective. If our investigations reveal any issues, we are committed to taking appropriate action, including but not limited to:
  • Working with the appropriate organisations to improve standards,
  • Removing that organisation from our preferred supplier list,
  • Passing details to appropriate law enforcement bodies.
  1. We regularly monitor our risks in this area through the use of relevant key performance indicators, including:
  • The percentage of workers and/or candidates supplied from audited businesses / our preferred supplier list,
  • The amount of time spent on audits, re-audits, spot checks, and related due diligence, and
  • The level of modern slavery training and awareness amongst our staff.
  1. As part of our efforts in this area, we publish a modern slavery statement on an annual basis.
  2. We would also recommend reading this in conjunction with our other policies, including our:
    • Corporate social responsibility policy,
    • Ethical procurement policy,
    • Anti-bribery / corruption policy, and
    • Whistle-blowing policy.
    • This policy was adopted on 20th July 2016 after being agreed by our Director. It is annually reviewed
