Anti-Slavery & Human Trafficking Policy

Anti-Slavery & Human Trafficking Policy

Anti-Slavery & Human Trafficking Policy

This policy applies to all persons working for us or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees at all  levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, volunteers, agents, contractors and suppliers. 

Alpha Omega Securities Ltd strictly prohibits the use of modern slavery and human trafficking in our  operations and supply chain.
We have been, and will continue to be, committed to implementing systems and controls aimed at ensuring that modern slavery is not taking place anywhere within our organisation, or in any of our  supply chains.
We expect that our suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards. 



Modern slavery is a term used to encompass slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour, removal of  organs, bonded and child labour, and human trafficking.
Human trafficking is where a person arranges or facilitates the travel of another person with a view to that person being exploited.
Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. 

As a company we expect everyone working with us, or on our behalf to support and uphold the  following measures to safeguard against modern slavery:
We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery in our organisation and our supply chains.
The prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery in any part of our organisation and supply chain is the responsibility of those working for us or on our behalf. Workers must not engage in, facilitate or fail to report any activity that might lead to, or suggest, a breach of this policy.
We are committed to engaging with our stakeholders and suppliers to address the risk of modern slavery in our operations and supply chain. 

  • We take a risk based approach to our contracting processes and keep them under review. We assess  whether the circumstances warrant the inclusion of specific prohibitions against the use of modern slavery, and trafficked labour, in our contracts with third parties. Using our risked based approach, we will also assess the merits of writing to suppliers requiring them to comply with our Code of Conduct, which sets out the minimum standards required to combat modern slavery and trafficking. 

Consistent with our risk based approach we may require: 

  • Employment and recruitment agencies and other third parties supplying workers to our  organisation to confirm their compliance with our Code of Conduct. 
  • Suppliers engaging workers through a third party to obtain that third parties’ agreement to  adhere to the Code. 
  • As part of our ongoing risk assessment and due diligence processes we will consider whether  circumstances warrant us carrying out audits of suppliers for their compliance with our Code of  Conduct. 
  • If we find that other individuals or organisations working on our behalf have breached this policy,  we will ensure that we take appropriate action. This may range from considering the possibility of breaches being remediated, and whether that might represent the best outcome for those  individuals impacted by the breach, to terminating such relationships. 
  • We will in accordance with relevant sections of the Immigrations, Asylum & Nationality Act 2006, and  subsequent amendments, carry out all necessary due diligence and control measures to ensure the  validity of potential and current employee’s rights to work within the UK, and we will retain copies of all necessary verified documentation for a period as specified in current or as amended legislation.
