modern slavery and human trafficking policy

purpose of the policy

This policy confirms tdm’s zero tolerance for slavery and human trafficking and is published in line with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. We are committed to being an equal opportunities employer ensuring we have created a respectful, harmonious working environment and culture for the benefit of all our employees and stakeholders. We hope that this policy will also provide our employees with the confidence to expose any wrongdoing without any risk to themselves.

This policy applies to all tdm recruitment employees and casual workers (permanent and temporary) as well as to anyone working for or on behalf of tdm recruitment including freelancers, suppliers, contractors, and business partners.

Our commitment to the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015

Our recruitment processes for internal hiring and for our clients are designed to ensure potential employees are legally entitled to work in the UK and to safeguard employees from any abuse and coercion.

While our work and clients are based in both the UK and abroad, we do not knowingly support or work with any organisation/employee/employer that supports or is found to be involved in slavery, servitude, and forced or compulsory labour.

As a recruitment business, our supply chains are limited and the procurement of any goods or services is done through reputable companies either solely based in the UK or with a strong UK presence. Therefore, we believe ourselves to have a low risk of modern slavery regarding our business and supply chains.

We expect that everyone working with us will support and uphold the following measures to safeguard against modern slavery:

  • The prevention, detection, and reporting of modern slavery in any part of the organisation or supply chain is the responsibility of all those working for us or on our behalf.
  • Workers must not engage in, facilitate or fail to report any activity that might lead to, or suggest, a breach of this policy.
  • We are committed to engaging with our stakeholders and suppliers to address the risk of modern slavery in operations and the supply chain.
  • We may require clients, employment and recruitment agencies and other third parties supplying workers to our organisation to confirm their compliance with our Code of Conduct.
  • As part of our ongoing risk assessment and due diligence processes we will consider whether circumstances warrant us carrying out audits of suppliers for their compliance with our Code of Conduct.
  • If we find that individuals or organisations working on our behalf have breached this policy we will ensure that we take appropriate action.

We do keep our policies under regular review and update as per government advice.

If you have any questions or if you feel that we are not complying with the terms of this policy please do contact us by e-mailing us at the following address inserting the words ‘Modern Slavery Grievance’ in the heading.
