At Buzzfire Ltd (the legal owners of InvestingReviews), we are committed to combating modern slavery in all its forms, including forced labour, human trafficking, and other forms of exploitation. As part of this commitment, we have implemented a modern slavery statement that outlines our policies and procedures for preventing and addressing modern slavery in our business operations.
Our statement includes the following key elements:
- Risk assessments: We conduct regular risk assessments to identify potential risks of modern slavery in our supply chain and take appropriate measures to mitigate those risks.
- Due diligence: We conduct due diligence on all of our suppliers and business partners to ensure that they meet our standards for ethical conduct and compliance with modern slavery legislation.
- Training and awareness: We provide training and awareness-raising activities for our employees to ensure that they are aware of the risks of modern slavery and how to identify and respond to potential instances of exploitation.
- Reporting mechanisms: We have established a reporting mechanism for our employees, suppliers, and other stakeholders to report any concerns or suspected instances of modern slavery.
- Compliance with legislation: We are committed to complying with all applicable modern slavery legislation, including the UK Modern Slavery Act.
- Proof of ID and residence: We require all new employees to provide proof of their identity and residency, such as a passport or national ID card and a recent utility bill or bank statement. This helps us to verify that the individual is who they claim to be and that they have a legal right to work and reside in the UK.
- Right to work or reside in the UK: We also conduct checks to ensure that all new employees have the right to work and reside in the UK. We check passports, visas, and other relevant documentation to confirm that the individual has a legal right to work in the UK.
- Wages being paid to staff member’s own bank account: We require all employees to provide their own bank account details for payment of their wages. This ensures that employees are paid directly and that there is no opportunity for their wages to be redirected or diverted to third parties.
- Ongoing checks: We also conduct ongoing checks to ensure that our employment practices comply with all applicable legislation and that we are doing everything we can to prevent modern slavery and exploitation in our business operations
We understand that modern slavery is a complex issue that requires ongoing attention and effort. We are dedicated to continuously improving our policies and procedures to ensure that we are doing everything we can to prevent and address modern slavery in our business operations.
