Modern Slavery Policy

Effective Date: 17.06.2023


At Riverbank Recruitment Ltd, we uphold the highest standards of ethical conduct and integrity in every aspect of our business operations and partnerships. Our unwavering commitment extends to maintaining a zero-tolerance policy towards modern slavery. We have implemented a comprehensive policy that outlines our dedication to preventing and eradicating modern slavery within our organization and supply chains.

What is Modern Slavery?

Modern slavery is a heinous crime that encompasses a range of exploitative practices, wherein individuals are subjected to severe forms of abuse and coercion for the purpose of personal or economic gain. This despicable phenomenon includes various forms of exploitation, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labor, and human trafficking. Victims of modern slavery are often deprived of their basic human rights, trapped in oppressive conditions, and coerced into performing labor or services against their will. The perpetrators of this crime manipulate and control vulnerable individuals, exploiting their vulnerability for their own benefit. It is essential that we raise awareness about modern slavery, work towards its prevention, and provide support and protection to those affected by this egregious violation of human rights.

Our Commitment to Preventing Modern Slavery

As part of our unwavering dedication to eradicating modern slavery, we have implemented comprehensive measures throughout our business and supply chains. Our commitment includes the following:

  • Thorough Supplier Due Diligence: We conduct rigorous due diligence on all our suppliers to ensure their complete non-involvement in any form of modern slavery.

  • Employee Training: Our employees receive comprehensive training on the risks associated with modern slavery, equipping them with the knowledge to identify and report any instances promptly and effectively.
