Roythornes Limited is committed to the prevention of exploitation and abuse associated with modern slavery and human trafficking
Our Lexcel Office Manual (Law Society accredited practice management standard) reflects our commitment to implementing and enforcing effective practices and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place in our firm or supply chain. We take a zero-tolerance approach to modern day slavery and are committed to doing the right thing across all aspects of our operations, including our supply chain.
Underpinning our position in terms of anti-slavery and human trafficking are a range of policies that outline our commitment to the identification and prevention of modern slavery in our firm and supply chain.
We list below some of the relevant policies:
- Our Whistleblowing Policy enables our staff to confidentially report any genuine concerns relating to modern day slavery, human trafficking or human rights violations and to give assurance that these concerns will be dealt with appropriately. This includes matters pertaining to our supply chain which would include modern slavery.
- Our Diversity and Inclusion Policy encourages all our employees and partners to value diversity and respect each person’s individuality, and to ensure that no partner, employee, agency worker, contractor, self-employed consultant, job applicant or ex-employee, client or third party receives less favorable treatment on the basis of color, race, nationality, ethnic or national origins, sexuality or gender, disability, age or religion or belief.
- Our Anti-bribery Policy sets out the firm’s rules and what is expected of our employees, partners, contractors and third-party service providers in all dealings on our behalf.
