Slavery and Human Trafficking: Zero Tolerance

Switch Squid has zero-tolerance policy on slavery or human trafficking any form within our business and we demand the same from our supply chain.

Introduction from Switch Squid’s Board Of Directors

Modern slavery and human trafficking are crimes that affect communities and individuals across the globe. Switch Squid strictly prohibits the use of forced labour and human trafficking in all of its operations and global supply chains.

Switch Squid considers it imperative that, as a business, there should be total transparency in our efforts to meet the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the Act).

The following statement outlines Switch Squid’s adherence to the Act and highlights the steps we take to ensure that there are no occurrences of modern slavery or human trafficking within the organisation or its supply chains.

As highlighted in our company values, it is a fundamental policy of Switch Squid to conduct our business with honesty, integrity and in accordance with the highest ethical standards.

We are committed to the ongoing review of our practices to ensure we continue to meet the requirements of the Act.
