Modern slavery is a serious crime. This violation of human rights can take various forms, including servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking. While they might sound different, all involve depriving someone of their freedom to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.
TFP takes a robust approach towards eliminating any risk of modern slavery occurring within our business or its supply chains.
We take a zero-tolerance approach to any of our staff and suppliers who are found to not abide by any applicable laws and regulations regarding modern slavery.
We ensure that all staff are required to prove their eligibility to work in Austria, and checks are carried out where applicable.
We commit to:
Incorporating training on our modern slavery policy within the staff induction process and providing ongoing training as necessary
Assessing the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking occurring within third-party suppliers before any business relationship is commenced
Encouraging transparency amongst our staff and suppliers and confidential support to anyone who raises concerns regarding modern slavery measures
Publishing a modern slavery and human trafficking statement within six months of the end of each financial year to further maintain transparency
Review measures are taken to be compliant with all laws regularly and notify Third Party Suppliers of any changes quickly
We use a risk-based assessment process for evaluating, verifying and selecting direct suppliers.
In order to measure the effectiveness of our efforts, we will implement measures to ensure that due diligence is conducted every year across the partnership. We will ensure that our suppliers and supply chain have the same policies and monitoring in place as they did when we initially evaluated them. This will help us to ensure that no form of slavery is taking place in any part of our business. We will act appropriate remedial action should there be any instances of non-compliance.
Training on this policy, and on the risk our business faces from modern slavery in its supply chains, forms part of the induction process for all individuals who work for us, and regular training is provided as necessary.
Any employee who breaches this policy will face disciplinary action, which could result in dismissal for misconduct or gross misconduct. We may terminate our relationship with other individuals and organisations working on our behalf if they breach this policy.
TFP continues to assess and evaluate its supply chain’s responsible sourcing practices. We strive to enforce best practices in our supply chain and across the entirety of our organization.
