Overland Environmental Services Limited – Slavery & Human Trafficking Policy Statement

This statement is made pursuant to Section 54, Part 6 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps the Company has taken to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in our supply chains or in any part of our business.

Slavery and Human Trafficking

Slavery and forced labour can take many forms, including human trafficking or child labour.

The Code of Human Rights, Basic Working Conditions and Corporate Responsibility, clearly states that we will not tolerate forced labour (including human trafficking) or child labour in our operations and we endeavour to ensure compliance. Our processes include actions to safeguard against human rights abuses (including forced labour and human trafficking) in our business.

It is a criminal offence for Overland to employ anyone subject to immigration control aged 16 or over, who doesn’t have permission to work in the UK or to do the type of work that we’re offering. The maximum penalty is currently £10,000 per illegal employee on summary conviction in a magistrate’s court. However, there is no upper limit to the fine imposed by a Crown Court following indictment.

During the New Employee Induction Process, Overland will check and keep a record of documents confirming an individual’s entitlement to work in the UK before employing them. Specified documents, if provided will be photocopied or scanned for us to keep a record of.

All our new employees will be asked to provide one of the original documents;

A passport showing the holder is a British citizen, or has the right of abode in the UK, is sufficient, or;

A full birth certificate, issued in the UK which includes the name of the holder’s parent or parents,

A certificate of registration, or a certificate of naturalisation stating that the holder is a British citizen.

This Policy will be reviewed on a yearly basis or will be updated as and when any changes are required by Law.
