Aim Cleaning

Modern Slavery Policy

Legal Information

 

Policy Statement


AIM Commercial Cleaning is committed to developing and adopting a proactive approach to tackling hidden labour exploitation.

Hidden labour exploitation is exploitation of job applicants or workers by third party individuals or gangs other than the employer or labour provider including rogue individuals working within these businesses but without the knowledge of management.  It includes forced labour and human trafficking for labour exploitation; payment for work-finding services and work-related exploitation such as forced use of accommodation.  It is understood that it is often well hidden by the perpetrators with victims, if they perceive of themselves as such, reluctant to come forward.

Many points in this policy have been taken from the UK organisation Stronger Together. For more information on modern slavery and how it can be prevented, please visit their website: http://stronger2gether.org/

The AIM Commercial Cleaning Board of Directors endorses this Modern Slavery Policy.
