Modern Slavery Act Policy

 

This statement is made by Azure Global in accordance with the requirements under section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”). It sets out how we endeavour to ensure that no slavery or human trafficking takes place in our supply chain or any other part of our business.

 

Our Business

Azure Global  is a payroll business involved in the payment of freelance operatives in the UK and Internationally.

We employ a workforce in our office in Dunfermline and believe the risk of human trafficking in our workforce is low. The majority of our team members are trained professionals who have been selected through Azure Global’s rigorous and transparent hiring processes managed by our People team, who also take responsibility for employee wellbeing in the workplace.

Azure Global has examined the risk of modern slavery within its business operations on a risk-based approach and considers the risks of modern slavery in its supply chain to be low. The assessment is based upon the fact that we ensure all individuals have the Right to Work in the UK and payments are in line with NMW/NLW requirements.

 

Compliance

Since the publication of our first Modern Slavery statement in 2017, we have remained committed to ensuring that no modern slavery or human trafficking takes place within our supply chain or in any part of our business. In addition to a risk assessment and as part of our commitment to preventing modern slavery and human trafficking in our business, we continue to ensure our compliance with the Act by:

  • Driving awareness of our company policy which outlines our requirements under the Modern Slavery Act;

  • Where appropriate and according to the level of potential risk, introducing contractual provisions in supplier contracts that require suppliers to comply with applicable anti-slavery and anti-trafficking laws; and

  • Maintaining a risk-based assessment of suppliers in order to identify any modern slavery or human trafficking related risks.

 

 

Further steps

We are committed to continuing our focus on modern slavery and will take steps to review and, where appropriate, further improve our processes to ensure that we mitigate the risks in all our business activities and within our supply chains.

Approval

The statement has been reviewed and approved by Azure Global’s  Board of Directors in accordance with the requirements of section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
