Modern Slavery Policy

 

Policy statement

Robert Walters Operations (Robert Walters) is firmly committed to maintaining the highest standards of ethics, honesty, openness and accountability. We recognise that all of our staff have an important role to play in achieving this goal.

This Policy is intended to provide an overview of the approach Robert Walters follows in respect of modern slavery practices.

Modern Slavery

Modern slavery is a term used to define a range of exploitive practices including:

  • Human trafficking
  • Slavery
  • Servitude
  • Forced marriage
  • Worst forms of child labour
  • Debt bondage

 

Robert Walters recognises that modern slavery distorts global economies, affects corporate social responsibility and has devastating social impacts on the community.

Policy

Robert Walters has a zero-tolerance approach to any imposition of, or connection to, modern slavery and human trafficking. This policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in respect of our staff, business relationships and the community in general.

Robert Walters is committed to ensuring that none of its business units is engaged in modern slavery. We conduct annual audits of wages, salaries and employment conditions of our employees and labour hire workers to ensure compliance with United Kingdom workplace laws.

In addition, Robert Walters conducts regular audits of its supply chain and adopts procedures and prevention measures to ensure that we do not indirectly contribute to modern slavery.

Apart from internal and external audits, Robert Walters also relies on the following policies to assist in managing the risks of modern slavery:

  • Whistleblower Policy;
  • Ethical Conduct Policy;
  • Code of Conduct Policy;
  • Corporate Social Responsibility Policy; and
  • Social Accountability Policy.

 

Reporting

An individual who suspects Robert Walters has breached this Policy must immediately notify Legal at legal@robertwalters.com.

An individual can make an anonymous disclosure in accordance with Robert Walters’ Whistleblower Policy.

Breach of Policy

Any breach of this Policy will be taken seriously and conduct in contravention of this Policy may be regarded as misconduct, leading to disciplinary action.
