Think Digital Partners prepared this statement in pursuant to Section 54 of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Think Digital Partners Ltd are committed to taking action to assess and address modern slavery risks in its operations and supply chain.
Think Digital Partners requires all suppliers and third parties to agree to our Business Partner Code of Conduct which includes abiding by our Labour Standards – Freely Chosen Employment, Child Labour Avoidance, Slavery and Human Trafficking Avoidance, Lawful Employment, Non- Discrimination or Harassment, Freedom of Association, Safe Conditions, Working Hours, and Wage and Benefits. These are summarised below.
Freely Chosen Employment with Think Digital Partners should be an expression of free choice and there should be no forced, bonded or involuntary labour. Think Digital Partners should allow workers to discontinue employment upon reasonable notice. Think Digital Partners should not hold or otherwise destroy, conceal, confiscate or deny access by employees to their identity or immigration documents, such as government-issued identification, passports or work permits, unless such actions are required by law.
Think Digital Partners and their business partners should not use child labour and should adopt procedures to verify and maintain documentation that no workers are younger than the local legal age for completing compulsory education. Think Digital Partners must follow all applicable local laws, regulations and standards concerning working hours and conditions for all workers. The term “child” refers to any person employed under the age of 15 (or 14 where the law of the country permits), or under the age for completing compulsory education, or under the minimum age for employment in the country, whichever is greatest.
Think Digital Partners regards all forms of slavery and human trafficking as unacceptable and strives to ensure that it play no part anywhere within its business. Think Digital Partners is committed to ensuring that everyone it deals with is treated with dignity and respect and that the way it conducts its business and its dealings with business partners reflects its values and deters any form of modern slavery and human trafficking from occurring within its business and supply chain. Think Digital Partners expects each of its business partners to share its commitment to respect for human rights and equality of opportunity in the workplace, and expects each such business partner to reflect this in their own employment practices so as to achieve full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. In order to meet these expectations, each business partner must:
• take all reasonable steps to ensure that there is no slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour, or human trafficking occurring in its business or in its supply chains
• at all times comply with the relevant provisions of all applicable laws and regulations regarding modern slavery and human trafficking in the performance of its obligations under any agreement with Think Digital Partners
