Although companies with an annual turnover greater than 36 million are required to publish a slavery and human trafficking statement, ABS IT services recognises its responsibility towards combating this heinous crime and are taking the following steps to tackle modern slavery.

  • Right to Work: All employees’ documents are checks and copies retained.
  • Compliance with the national minimum wage rates.
  • Observation for any signs indicating modern slavery:
    • Clothes – What is the state of an employee’s clothes?
    • Physical Abuse – Are there any signs or evidence of physical abuse?
    • Possessions – Does the employee have any possessions? Any money for food?
  • Informal Chats: Management will communicate with all its employees on general manners which should help to identify if an employee needs help or is in some form of modern slavery:
    • Does the employee avoid questions?
    • Does the employee either avoid answering a question or looks for others to answer?
  • Restriction of Freedom:
    • Are the employee’s movements restricted in anyway?
    • Are they worried about leaving late or even early?
    • Is the employee dropped off and/or collected from work?
  • Behaviour is also an indicator that a person may linked to modern slavery:
    • Fearful of authorities, releasing immigration status, unfamiliar to local language, etc.
  • Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS): All employees are BPSS checked.
  • Security Clearance: All Technical and where appropriate some admin employees are SC screened.
