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.
Radiant Systems strictly prohibits the use of modern slavery and human trafficking in our operations. 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 organization.
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 organization.
- The prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery in any part of our organization is the responsibility of all those working for us or on our behalf. Employees and Consultants 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 to address the risk of modern slavery in our operations.
- We take a risk-based approach to our contracting processes and keep them under review. We assess whether the circumstances warrant the inclusion of specific prohibitions against the use of modern slavery and trafficked labour in our contracts. Using our risked based approach, we will also assess the merits of writing to Employees and Consultants requiring them to comply with our Code of Conduct, which sets out the minimum standards required to combat modern slavery and trafficking.
- As part of our ongoing risk assessment and due diligence processes we will consider whether circumstances warrant us carrying out audits with Employees and Consultants for the compliance with our Code of Conduct.
- If we find that other individuals or organizations 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.
