About

Businesses should provide a hotline or other grievance mechanism so that direct employees may report or flag suspected incidents of slavey or trafficking. As part of business’ responsibility to respect worker’s rights, those affected by modern slavery and those witnessing violations in any part of a company’s operations should be able to freely report incidents. These mechanisms should be clear and transparent, and any incidents should be recorded and monitored.   

For further information on grievance mechanisms please refer to the Home Office Guidance, pp. 33 or the CORE Guidance, pp. 19.

Methodology

Does the company provide a hotline or reporting mechanism where grievances or suspected incidents of slavery or trafficking can be reported for direct employees?

A whistleblowing mechanism may include:

  1. An anonymous reporting line or hotline that workers can call

  2. Whistleblower protections for employees and their families so they will not be penalised if they report modern slavery cases

  3. An employee or independent focal point to whom reports can be made

A direct employee is someone who is working directly for the company either in the company head office or in regional offices.

Please select as many mechanisms as apply. Where there is no mention of who the mechanism applies to, please assume it applies only to employees, and record the whistleblowing mechanism under this metric.

If the business indicates it is developing a whistleblowing or grievance mechanism or planning to implement one in the future, please indicate “In Development” and again give details in the comments section.

Please select "No" if no whistleblowing mechanism is described in the statement.

For each value, please include a comment that copies relevant information from the statement. If the policy that you wish to include is not listed, please add a comment and flag the section for review.
