WHYAYE DISCLOSURE STATEMENT AGAINST SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
This Statement covers the period between July 2022 and June 2023, it will be renewed yearly.
At whyaye, we have a staunch commitment to the highest legal and ethical behaviour, including compliance with laws outlawing human trafficking and slavery. The UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 defines “modern slavery” as including the crimes of “slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour” as well as “human trafficking”. These behaviours have absolutely no place in society and are directly opposed to the values and ethics of whyaye.
This Disclosure Statement (“Statement”) has been published according to section 54 (1) of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 (“the act”) and is made on behalf of whyaye ltd (and is referred to herein as “whyaye”)
This Statement sets out the steps taken and to be taken by whyaye during the fiscal year ending June 2023. This Statement will be published in our Employee Service Centre and our external website.
Whyaye fully supports the elimination of modern slavery and human trafficking outlined in the UN Declaration of Human Rights and reinforced in the UK by the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015.
whyaye has a simple supply chain to deliver services to our clients. We pride ourselves on our usage of UK based businesses for our services.
whyaye requires all its suppliers to provide a Modern Slavery Statement akin to this Statement.
whyaye will also continue to evaluate its procurement process to ensure it has appropriate policies to guard against unlawful and unethical behaviour.
whyaye expects all suppliers to adhere to the same standards of ethics and business conduct. This will be communicated to them as part of our procurement process.
The whyaye Code of Conduct applies to all mob members, wherever they may be and whatever position they hold at whyaye.
whyaye actively abide by all employment law in the United Kingdom and will abide by any employment law in countries it ends up operating in.
whyaye will never use child labour, forced or unforced.
whyaye does not allow or tolerate any form of physical punishment or abuse.
whyaye respects our mob members’ freedom to join, or abstain from joining, legally authorised associations or organisations.
whyaye entirely complies with all applicable laws outlawing human trafficking.
Due Diligence on our Suppliers
As mentioned earlier in this Statement, whyaye shall only ever do business with suppliers and partners who want to put the yay into everyone’s working day. As referenced earlier, we will now ensure all suppliers provide a modern slavery statement and continue to review our suppliers and our methods for ensuring suppliers are fully compliant with the act and our wider ethical principles.
If we find any of our suppliers are in breach of the act. We shall end our business relationship. Nothing excuses breaching the act.
whyaye continues to invest in our mob members’ learning needs and continually update them with our expectations, including anti-corruption, respect, and generally making sure we remain compliant with any regulation. We strive to maintain that all our mob members hold our values and ethics to our core. It is what makes us whyayers.
Whyayers will always be encouraged to raise legal or ethical concerns to their direct service leads, the board of directors or company secretary, whoever they feel most comfortable talking to.
This Statement is approved by Joshua Broad – Company Secretary and Director of WHYAYE LTD.
