In order to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking are not present in any aspect of our operations or supply chains, we are firmly dedicated to taking proactive measures. We expect full cooperation from our employees to uphold these standards and conduct themselves in a manner that eliminates any association with modern slavery. This includes refraining from engaging in criminal activities or any actions that may tarnish our reputation.
To combat modern slavery and human trafficking within our business and supply chains, we have implemented a continuous improvement program. Our Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy forms an integral part of our existing policies and Code of Ethics, serving as the fundamental principles upon which we conduct our business. We consistently conduct due diligence on our supply chain to ensure compliance with this policy.
Our commitment extends to conducting all aspects of our business ethically and in accordance with the Modern Slavery Act of 2015.
Furthermore, we uphold all applicable laws pertaining to the prevention of slavery and human trafficking in all the jurisdictions where we operate. As a corporate entity conducting business, including the supply of services, we acknowledge our coverage under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

nrol’s Supply Chain
nrol works in conjunction with law firms, organisations and companies worldwide and recruits candidates for both local and international positions. We require strict adherence to local and national laws and regulations from all our suppliers. Our commitment extends to conducting our business with utmost integrity and ethics, regardless of the location.
We have implemented robust systems to combat slavery and human trafficking, ensuring their effectiveness through enforcement. These high standards are expected not only from our contractors and suppliers but also from all our business partners.
Our Policies on Slavery & Human Trafficking
Internally, we prioritise maintaining professional and respectful interactions with our employees, ensuring that their rights under UK legislation are clearly outlined in their employment contracts.
Our commitment to our employees goes beyond legal requirements. We ensure that all employees receive wages above the national minimum, and we provide them with a comprehensive range of benefits.
To protect our employees, we have established internal policies covering various aspects such as anti-slavery and human trafficking, formal grievance procedures, a code of conduct, and whistle-blowing policies. These policies not only safeguard our employees but also empower them to raise concerns and challenge any misconduct within the organisation.
We expect our employees to promptly report any concerns or suspicions regarding slavery within our business or supply chain. They can do so by contacting our CEO, who will conduct a thorough investigation and take appropriate action.
Should any of our employees breach the principles outlined in this statement, we will conduct a thorough investigation. Depending on the severity of the breach, disciplinary action may be taken, including the possibility of employee dismissal.
Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking
We implemented a supplier due diligence checklist and a supplier code of conduct to clearly communicate our ethical standards and zero-tolerance policy towards slavery in our supply chain.
As part of our contractual review process, our Legal Team/Contract Review Team assesses the risk associated with each supplier and assigns a risk rating. Suppliers identified as medium or high risk undergo a thorough review, and appropriate measures are implemented where necessary.
We prioritise the supply of both interim and permanent personnel, and our client services team carefully examines all contractual terms between our company and our clients. This ensures a safe and professional working environment, particularly for our interim candidates, and includes monitoring working hours through a formal timesheet process. We always obtain confirmation from both interim and permanent candidates regarding their willingness to be considered for a role.
As part of our due diligence procedures, we conduct various checks on prospective employees and candidates, whether they are intended for client placement or internal recruitment. Depending on the nature of the relationship, we:
Conduct right to work and reference checks on employees and candidates, as applicable.
Verify that temporary workers have their own compliant bank accounts for payment, adhering to relevant legislation in the applicable jurisdiction.
Engage temporary workers through formal contracts that comply with relevant legislation in the applicable jurisdiction.
Thoroughly vet and audit umbrella companies to ensure compliance with employment and taxation laws in the applicable jurisdiction, for those on our preferred supplier list.
Our commitment lies in embracing best practices and maintaining vigilant oversight of the effectiveness of our controls and systems. We are dedicated to continuously improving and enhancing these measures whenever feasible.
Recognising the significance of empowering our employees to identify instances of slavery, we prioritise their training in this area. We have implemented annual training sessions dedicated to slavery awareness, aimed at enhancing their knowledge and equipping them with the skills to identify signs of slavery and effectively raise concerns.
