This sets out the Modern Slavery policy for KCL Digital (08583068) subject to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
KCL Digital takes slavery and human trafficking seriously. We are committed to ensuring that there are no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our Anti-slavery Policy reflects our commitment to act ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking cannot occur in any part of our supply chains. We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. We expect all those in our supply chain and contractors to comply with our values.
We aim to employ the highest ethical and professional standards and always to comply with all relevant laws and regulations applicable to our business. Our commitment is emphasised in our onboarding programmes and company policies. Our approach to anti-slavery is also referred to our Consultants and Client Contracts and Agreements.
KCL Digital is currently a virtual organisation working within the public sector, offering digital transformation services to its clients. We place consultants to deliver within a defined set of frameworks and work packages. Our consultants are onboarded via a thorough detailed checking process including ID, reference and DBS checks. We only work with reputable organisations, established and recognised within our industry of work across the public sector including mainly governance bodies.
Due to the nature of our business our view is that there is very low risk of slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains. We check our policy annual line with further advice and updates to the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
We apply for the following diligence to ensure compliance and mitigation of risk:
- Build long-standing relationships with local suppliers and make clear our expectations of business behaviour.
- Have a policy of “knowing our customer” to ensure we are contracting with appropriate businesses.
- Prior to entering into business or continued business, that our business partners also have in place their own Modern Slavery Policy, which is in accordance with the high standards we expect, and the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
- Include the encouragement of reporting of concerns in all our contracts and agreements, with our suppliers, clients, partners and consultants.
- We will terminate a contract or agreement, with immediate effect if required, if we feel there has been a serious breach of this policy in our work.
