Bartec Municipal Technologies

Modern Slavery Policy

Our commitment to the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015

Bartec Municipal Technologies will always work in support of the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the abolition of modern slavery and human trafficking.

We are an equal opportunities employer, committed to creating and ensuring a safe, equal and respectful working environment for our staff. We want everyone in our business to be confident that they can expose wrongdoing without any risk to themselves.

We will not work with, buy from, or supply to, any businesses which knowingly support or are involved in slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour.

Our recruitment processes will ensure that all prospective employees are legally entitled to work in the UK and we will safeguard our employees from any abuse or coercion.

Our supply chains

We work with limited supply chains, buying goods from a small number of national and international organisations. Our customers are almost entirely UK-based operations and mostly government organisations with robust procurement and recruitment policies.

Nevertheless, we will always require that our suppliers and partners adhere to the same principles and standards as we do in our own business.

Our policies relating to the Modern Slavery Act 2015

The following policies are available to all staff in their employee handbooks and contracts of employment:

  • Code of conduct
  • Ethics policy
  • Whistleblowing policy
  • Bullying and harassment policy
  • Diversity and inclusion policy
  • Recruitment and selection policy

Embedding the principles

We will continuously practice and develop our principles through:

  • providing awareness training to staff on the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and informing them of the appropriate action to take if they suspect a case of slavery or human trafficking
  • ensuring that the risk of modern slavery is enshrined in our policy review processes
  • requiring our suppliers and supply-chain partners to commit to procurement strategies and contract terms which reference modern slavery and human trafficking
  • ensuring that staff involved in buying or procurement and the recruitment and deployment of workers receive training on modern slavery and ethical employment practicesModern Slavery Policy
