OUR COMMITMENT TO THE PRINCIPLES OF THE MODERN SLAVERY ACT 2015.

CDSA is committed to the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the abolition of modern slavery and human trafficking. As an equal opportunities’ employer, we are committed to creating and ensuring a non-discriminatory and respectful working environment for our staff. We want all our staff to feel confident that they can expose wrongdoing without any risk to themselves. Our recruitment and people management processes are designed to ensure that all prospective employees are legally entitled to work in the UK and to safeguard employees from any abuse or coercion.

We do not enter into business with any organisation, which knowingly supports or is found to be involved in slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour. Due to the nature of our business, we assess ourselves to have a minimal risk of modern slavery in our business and supply chains. 

Our supply chains are limited, and we obtain goods and services from a restricted range of UK suppliers.

We will continue to embrace these principles through supplying awareness training to staff on the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and informing them of the proper action to take if they suspect a case of slavery or human trafficking ensuring staff involved in procurement activity are aware of and follow modern slavery procurement guidance on GOV.UK. We continue a zero-tolerance policy towards modern slavery ensuring that staff involved in buying / procurement and the recruitment and deployment of workers receive training on modern slavery and ethical employment practices.
