Anti Slavery Policy
Ocean Fish recognized that our commercial and corporate activities have an impact on our stakeholders – those individuals or groups who are affected directly or indirectly by our activities and achievements.
- Modern slavery is a crime and violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery, and we are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our business or in any of our supply chains.
- As a socially responsible company we have a right to expect transparency in our own business and for us to have a positive approach to tackling along with our supplier’s Modern Slavery Act 2015.
- We expect the same high standards from all our contractors, suppliers, and other business partners. And as part of our contracting processes, we include specific prohibitions against the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked labour, or anyone held in slavery or servitude, whether adults or children.
- This policy does not form part of any employee’s contract of employment and we may amend the policy at any time.
