If we find breaches of these laws within our supply chain, we will look to support companies in their efforts to comply with the legislation.
We have a number of procedures in place that contribute to ensuring modern slavery does not occur in our business or supply chains including the introduction of Ethical audits on new and existing suppliers/factories using globally recognised standards.
Status have a robust recruitment process in-line with UK employment laws including contracts of employment and checks to ensure that everyone employed is over the age of 16.
Status operates the following policies to help identify modern slavery risks and steps to be taken to prevent slavery and human trafficking in its operations
Employee code of conduct – Our organisation operates an employee code that makes it clear to employees the actions and behaviour expected of them when representing the company, we strive to maintain the high standards of conduct and ethical behaviour when operating within the UK and abroad when managing the supply chain.
Supply chain code of conduct - Our organisation is committed to ensuring that its suppliers follow the highest standards of ethics. Suppliers are required to demonstrate that they provide safe working conditions where necessary, treat workers with dignity and respect, and act ethically and within the law.

However, serious violations may lead to the termination of the business relationship.
