Anti-slavery & Human Trafficking Policy
This Policy represents the company’s direction to the business on this topic. Compliance with this
policy is mandatory through aligning Cognitronics processes and people behaviors to the
2 ANTI-SLAVERY & HUMAN TRAFFICKING POLICY
2.1 Policy Statement
This policy applies to all persons working for us or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees
at all levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, volunteers, agents, contractors
and suppliers. Cognitronics Ltd strictly prohibits the use of modern slavery and human trafficking in
our operations and supply chain. We have and will continue to be committed to implementing
systems and controls aimed at ensuring that modern slavery is not taking place anywhere within our
organisation or in any of our supply chains. We expect that our suppliers will hold their own
suppliers to the same high standards.
Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking
Modern slavery is a term used to encompass slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour,
bonded and child labour and human trafficking. Human trafficking is where a person arranges or
facilitates the travel of another person with a view to that person being exploited. Modern slavery is
a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights.
We shall be a company that expects everyone working with us or on our behalf to support and
uphold the following measures to safeguard against modern slavery:
We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery in our organisation and our supply chains.
The prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery in any part of our 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 our operations and supply chain.
If we find that other individuals or organisations working on our behalf have breached this policy
we will ensure that we take appropriate action. This may range from considering the possibility of
breaches being remediated and whether that might represent the best outcome for those individuals
impacted by the breach to terminating such relationships.
