Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
This statement is made on behalf of Iliffes Booth Bennett, IBB Solicitors and IBB Claims (together, IBB) and constitutes IBB’s slavery and human trafficking statement. It sets out the steps that IBB has taken – and is continuing to take – to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within our business and supply chain. Although IBB is not legally obliged to produce a statement we consider it good business practice to do so.
IBB Solicitors and IBB Claims are the trading names of the partnership Iliffes Booth Bennett, of Capital Court, 30 Windsor Street, Uxbridge UB8 1AB and The Bury, Church Street, Chesham, Bucks HP5 1JE. IBB is a provider of legal services in four main areas – Real Estate, Commercial, Private Client and Community Legal Services.
IBB has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of slavery and human trafficking. We are committed to acting in an ethical manner, with integrity and transparency in all business dealings.
We operate a number of internal policies to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner. These include:
- Recruitment Policy
- Whistleblowing Policy
- Equality and Diversity Policy
- Health and Safety Policy
- Anti-Bribery and Corruption Policy
We are committed to having effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of slavery and human trafficking taking place within our supply chain. All our suppliers are expected to comply with all applicable slavery and human trafficking laws and regulations.
We are currently in the process of implementing appropriate slavery and human trafficking training for the relevant people within IBB, and in particular for those involved in procurement processes. We intend to roll out this training during the course of 2018 and to ensure awareness of the issues surrounding slavery and human trafficking, and what to do if there is any suspicion that it is taking place within our business or supply chain.
As a result of our internal policies and external audit processes (eg ISO 9001 and Lexcel) IBB is constantly monitoring the effectiveness of the steps we are taking to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within our business and supply chain.
