This statement is made in accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and represents Radis’ anti-slavery and human trafficking statement for 2020-21. Radis are not legally obliged to publish a Modern Slavery Statement. However, we conduct our business in line with the Human Rights Act 1998, and in support of anti-slavery and human trafficking, and will provide clarity to our employees, customers and all stakeholders on how we deal with this.
Radis do not tolerate slavery or human trafficking in any part of its business and are committed to ensuring that it does not take place within its supply chains. Through an ethical approach to procurement, we take necessary steps to ensure our supply chain holds the same values, commitment and policies to prevent, detect and eradicate modern slavery within their own operations and the operations of suppliers and business partners.
The following policies are available to all employees through our Intranet, Global electronic folder and local folders held at our branches/services:
- Safeguarding Adults/Safeguarding Children
- Data Protection
- Equality & Diversity
- Human Rights
- Recruitment and Employment
Radis has overall responsibility to make sure that this policy statement complies with legal and ethical obligations and that those within Radis’s control comply with requirements. We will consider whether circumstances warrant us carrying out audits of suppliers for their compliance in line with these obligations.
All managers are responsible for making sure that those people who report to them are aware of, and comply with, this policy statement and are provided with relevant and up to date training on the subject, including supply chains for those involved with procurement.
Radis ensures that:
- the identity of all new employees is thoroughly vetted and that relevant documents are provided that prove their identity and right to work in the UK
- all employees are paid above the national living wage
- safeguarding training is provided for all employees and renewed on a regular basis
- whistleblowing is promoted within all its branches/services
All employees are made aware of Radis’ policies and procedures through induction, training and updates when these are reviewed. Various methods of training are used including one to one, on-line, group meetings, individual supervisions and external courses are sourced as required.
