10. Modern Slavery Statement
Media Alive Limited 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, we are committed to creating and ensuring a non-discriminatory and respectful working environment for our staff. We want all our staff to feel confident that they can expose wrongdoing without any risk to themselves and as such the company has an established whistleblowing policy which all staff can access alongside all other company policies on the staff intranet.
Our recruitment and people management processes are designed to ensure that all prospective employees are legally entitled to work in the UK, and where applicable subject to DBS checks in order to safeguard employees and apprentices from any abuse or coercion.
We do not enter into business with any organisation, in the UK or abroad, which knowingly supports or is found to be involved in slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour.
Our contracts with our members & customers allow us to terminate for convenience under a wide ranging all encompassing reputational damage contract clause which covers those to be found in breach of the modern slavery act.
Much of the supply chain is engaged on their terms & conditions, although modern slavery and anti-bribery elements are incorporated into the award of new or renewing contracts.
