Allsop aims at all times to conduct its business in compliance with all legislation and regulations which are relevant to our business within the countries that we operate.
We acknowledge our obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and are committed to implementing and maintaining effective systems and controls to ensure that our business and supply chains are free from modern slavery.
What is meant by Modern Slavery
The term “modern slavery” is used to describe situations where a person is deprived of their liberty in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. It is a criminal offence and a violation of human rights and can take a number of forms, including slavery, forced or compulsory labour, servitude, human trafficking, traffic in prostitution and trafficking for exploitation. Allsop is committed to ensuring that our business and supply chains are free from modern slavery or human trafficking. We take a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and will not knowingly support or deal with any business knowingly involved in such practices.
