Modern Slavery Statement of IFS
What is modern slavery?
Modern slavery is an umbrella term for all forms of slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking. The Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the Act) combats modern slavery in the UK and consolidates previous offences relating to trafficking and slavery.
Its impact on society
Having family and friends involved in the fight for anti-trafficking, International Freight Solutions Ltd, have made it our business to take responsibility and be aware of the government’s position on Modern Day Slavery:
The aim of the Modern Slavery Act is to ensure that large businesses (businesses with an annual turnover of more than £36 million) monitor and control their operations and supply chains and keep them free from human trafficking and slavery.
International Freight Solutions Ltd is committed to the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the abolition of modern slavery and human trafficking. As an equal-opportunities employer, IFS is committed to creating and ensuring a non-discriminatory and respectful working environment for all of its staff.
IFS recruitment and people management processes are designed to ensure that all prospective employees are legally entitled to work in the UK and to safeguard employees from any abuse or coercion once in our employment.
The payment of suppliers and employees are priority activities for International Freight Solutions Ltd and the Company is continuing to adhere to the government’s prompt payment guidelines to help protect the payment of wages within supply chains.
