In accordance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015, Mauchline Holy Fair is committed to a work environment that is free from human trafficking, forced labour and unlawful child labour (collectively “human trafficking and slavery”). It also strongly believes that it has a responsibility for promoting ethical and lawful employment practices.
Accordingly, Mauchline Holy Fair will not knowingly use unlawful child labour or forced labour in the manufacture of the products it sells, nor will it accept products and/or services from suppliers that employ or utilise child labour or forced labour.
Human trafficking and slavery are crimes under UK and international law. These crimes exist in countries throughout the world. This policy statement thus defines Mauchline Holy Fair commitment to ensuring that human trafficking and slavery does not exist within its own business, but also provides how Mauchline Holy Fair will make efforts to eradicate the same from other businesses with whom it shall maintain a relationship (and especially from within its supply chain).
Mauchline Holy Fair has appointed Jack Lynch as it’s senior compliance officer (its Anti- Slavery and Human Trafficking Officer) and will take appropriate steps to ensure not only its own compliance but also that these requirements are followed by its suppliers, subcontractors and/or business partners (collectively by its “Suppliers”) worldwide.
All Supplies are therefore required to adhere to the following:
Human Trafficking: the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person for the purpose of exploitation.
Forced Labour: all work or service, not voluntarily performed, that is obtained from an individual under the threat of force or penalty.
Harmful Child Labour: consists of the employment of children that is economically exploitative, or is likely to be hazardous to, or interfere with, the child’s education, or to be harmful to the child’s health, or physical, mental, spiritual, moral, or social development.
Any breach of this Policy (including by a Supplier) can be reported (in confidence, if required) by contacting Mauchline Holy Fair senior compliance officer Jack Lynch.
Mauchline Holy Fair takes any breach of this Policy extremely seriously.
Suppliers who are found to have or be engaging in human trafficking or slavery will be liable to have any supplier agreement, arrangement or other contract with Mauchline Holy Fair terminated immediately, without compensation.
If a Supplier to Mauchline Holy Fair is found in violation of this policy, Mauchline Holy Fair will take prompt action which may include terminating any supply agreement, arrangement or other contract with that Supplier (as above). It shall also take such other (remedial) steps as the Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Officer shall determine to be necessary to address the violation and seek to prevent its re-occurrence.
