Our Modern Slavery Policy
This policy is designed to satisfy the requirements of Part 6 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, by informing our employees, suppliers, other third-party partners and customers about 78 Media and its Statement with respect to modern slavery, human trafficking, forced and bonded labour and labour rights violations in its supply chains.
75 Media is committed to driving out acts of modern-day slavery and human trafficking within its business and from within its supply chains, including sub-contractors, and partners. Although, as a business, 75 Media turns over far less than the threshold for businesses required to publish a statement under the Act, the Company upholds the spirit and intentions of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
75 Media is committed to ensure that:
1. Employment is freely chosen;
2. Freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining are respected;
3. Working conditions are safe and hygienic;
4. Child labour shall not be used;
5. Living wages are paid;
6. Working hours are not excessive;
7. No discrimination is practised;
8. Regular employment is provided; and
9. No harsh or inhumane treatment is allowed.
We enrol our employees in e-learning training. This online Modern Slavery Training course aims to educate users on identifying signs of modern-day slavery and to give confidence to people to speak up about it. It provides the knowledge on how to report, acknowledge and how to handle modern slavery in and around the workplace. Alongside this, it touches upon the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
The Team Handbook makes clear to employees the actions and behaviour expected of them when representing the Company. The Company strives to maintain the highest standards of employee conduct and ethical behaviour when operating abroad and managing its supply chain.
The Company’s whistleblowing procedure is designed to make it easy for workers to make disclosures, without fear of retaliation.
Recruitment/Agency workers policy the Company uses only specified, reputable employment agencies to source labour and always verifies the practices of any new agency it is using before accepting workers from that agency.
