Anti-Slavery Policy Statement
Seer Computing is an independent Computer Consultancy specialising in high end IT solutions, training and consultancy. Seer Computing has been in existence for over twenty years and prides itself on its reputation with its clients and customers.
This Anti-Slavery Policy will on occasion be updated and refined but will always reflect the genuine concerns Seer Computing have to maintain a reputation second to none.
Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty
by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.
Seer Computing Ltd ("The Company") has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery, and is committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all its business dealings and relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective
systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business or with any of our clients.
The Company is also committed to ensuring there is transparency in its own business and in our approach to tackling modern slavery, consistent with our disclosure obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
We expect the same high standards from all of our contractors, suppliers and other business partners, and as part of our contracting processes, this includes specific prohibitions against the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked
labour, or anyone held in slavery or servitude, whether adults or children, and we expect that our suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards.
This policy applies to all persons working for us or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees at all levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, volunteers, interns, agents, contractors, external consultants,
third-party representatives and business partners.
This policy does not form part of any employee’s contract of employment and we may amend it at any time.
Responsibility for the policy
The Company has overall responsibility for ensuring this policy complies with its legal and ethical obligations, and that all those under its control comply with it.
The Company has primary and day-to-day responsibility for implementing this policy, monitoring its use and effectiveness, dealing with any queries about it, and auditing internal control systems and procedures to ensure they are effective
in countering modern slavery.
All Company Officers accept responsibility for ensuring those reporting to them understand and comply with this policy and are given adequate and regular training on it and the issue of modern slavery in other Companies.
Compliance with the policy
You must ensure that you read, understand and comply with this policy. The prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery in any part of our business or Clients is the responsibility of all those working for us or under our control.
You are required to avoid any activity that might lead to, or suggest, a breach of this policy. You must notify your line manager OR a company Director as soon as possible if you believe or suspect that a conflict with this policy
has occurred or may occur in the future.
You are encouraged to raise concerns about any issue or suspicion of modern slavery in any parts of our business or Customers at the earliest possible stage. If you believe or suspect a breach of this policy has occurred or that it may occur,
you must notify your line manager or company Director as soon as possible.
You should note that where appropriate, and with the welfare and safety of local workers as a priority, we will give support and guidance to our Customers to help them address coercive, abusive and exploitative work practices in their own
business and supply chains.
If you are unsure about whether a particular act, the treatment of workers more generally, or their working conditions within any tier of our supply chains constitutes any of the various forms of modern slavery, raise it with your
line manager or company Director.
We aim to encourage openness and will support anyone who raises genuine concerns in good faith under this policy, even if they turn out to be mistaken. We are committed to ensuring no one suffers any detrimental treatment as a result of
reporting in good faith their suspicion that modern slavery of whatever form is or may be taking place in any part of our own business or in any of our Customers.
Detrimental treatment includes dismissal, disciplinary action, threats or other unfavourable treatment connected with raising a concern. If you believe that you have suffered any such treatment, you should inform your line manager
immediately. If the matter is not remedied, and you are an employee, you should raise it formally using our Grievance Procedure, which can be found in the current employee handbook.
