We are committed to improving our practices to combat modern slavery in our business by taking steps, as far as we are able, to ensure that our supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking. This policy sets out the steps we have taken or intend to take to understand potential modern slavery risks within our business structure and supply chains as well as the steps we have taken or intend to take to eliminate those risks.
Builure Services Pty Ltd (ACN 666 640 900) (we, us or our) is a contemporary Salesforce consultancy that embraces the evolving work landscape and assists companies of all sizes in finding the right talent, regardless of financial resources.
Our annual consolidated turnover is under AU$100 million. Although we are not required to make a modern slavery statement under the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth) (Act), we are making this voluntary statement to show our commitment to ethical trading principles and to set out the steps we have taken or intend to take to identify risks and tackle modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and in our supply chains.
This Policy applies to all our staff, agents and suppliers within Australia and, if applicable, overseas.
Modern slavery includes any conduct that constitutes modern slavery under the Act and includes child labour, human trafficking, forced labour, debt bondage, deceptive recruitment for labour and services, slavery and slavery-like practices, servitude and other forms of serious exploitation.
Indicators of modern slavery may include:
· excessive working hours;
· abusive working conditions; and
· underpayment, no payment or withholding of payment of wages.
We have implemented or intend to implement the following measures to identify, reduce and combat the risks of modern slavery in our operations and supply chains:
· investigating allegations of modern slavery in our business operations and supply chains;
· engaging with our suppliers to improve our position in preventing and readily identifying, reducing and combatting modern slavery risks in relation to our supply chains;
· only employing agency workers through reputable employment agencies that we believe adhere to our anti-slavery and human trafficking policy;
· training our staff on their obligations under this Policy; and
· implementing processes to mitigate modern slavery risks that we consider necessary and reviewing such processes from time to time.
We also expect those we do business with to address modern slavery within their own business operations and supply chains to the same high standard. We vet suppliers and sub-contractors to ensure they are committed to ethical labour practices. Accordingly, before entering into, or during the term of, an agreement with any third party for services or supply arrangements, we may endeavour to obtain from that supplier certain assurances of compliance with the Act and the prevention of modern slavery within their supply chains. We may also investigate any modern slavery concerns identified in relation to our suppliers, who are then expected to cooperate, and, where relevant, procure their suppliers, contractors, agents and related entities to cooperate, with our investigations and any further measures we consider are appropriate to mitigate the identified modern slavery concerns.
All staff have a role to play in preventing, detecting and reporting modern slavery risks. Our staff are required to immediately notify management of any actual or suspected modern slavery which may be in breach of this Policy.
We encourage this through our regular meetings with relevant personnel. We may also conduct anonymous surveys for our staff to report back to us on various parts of our business.
Our staff must immediately notify management if they engage with a supplier who engages in, or is suspected to engage in, modern slavery or fails to take measures to prevent modern slavery risks in their supply chains. We may further investigate the supplier’s supply chains and assess whether its operations are consistent with any contracts we may have in place with the supplier.
Any breach of this Policy may lead to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment or our business relationship with you (as applicable).
We may vary, remove or replace this Policy at any time.
