Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy and Procedure
Human Resources – Equality and Human Rights
It is unlikely that Expeditions Living Pvt Ltd will experience cases of slavery or human trafficking, but this policy details the commitment of Expeditions Living Pvt Ltd to raise awareness and defines a process to address issues if they do arise, and to acknowledge that human trafficking and modern slavery are a safeguarding matter.
Slavery and human trafficking is classed as abuse, and indicators could be:
- Signs of physical or emotional abuse
- Appearing to be malnourished, unkempt or withdrawn
- Isolation from the community, seeming under the control or influence of others
- Living in dirty, cramped or overcrowded accommodation, or living and working at the same address
- Lack of personal effects or identification documents
- Always wearing the same clothes
- Avoidance of eye contact, appearing frightened or hesitant to talk to strangers
- Fear of law enforcers
All staff will be made aware of the issues surrounding slavery and human trafficking, whilst being encouraged and supported to report any concerns to Expeditions Living Pvt Ltd management. Expeditions Living Pvt Ltd will also support any staff that may be subject to slavery or human trafficking.
In situations of slavery or human trafficking being identified, Expeditions Living Pvt Ltd will share this information with the Local Safeguarding Team to safeguard the individual from harm and with the objective of preventing future situations arising, to promote the elimination of routes and sources of slavery or human trafficking.
Expeditions Living Pvt Ltd will ensure that only staff whose credentials can be confirmed are employed.
