This statement is made on behalf of Ross Trustees Services Limited and Ross Corporate Services Limited, collectively known as “Ross Trustees”, pursuant to section 54 (1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Ross Trustees does not meet the criteria to publish an annual “slavery and human trafficking statement’ but we wish to acknowledge the importance that we place on ensuring that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within our supply chain.
Modern slavery, in all its forms of slavery and servitude, forced or compulsory labour and trafficking is a crime, and a violation of fundamental human rights, which will not be tolerated within our own business, or in any of our supply chains.
Ross Trustees employs in the order of 50 employees, each of whom works at our office in London or from their home.
Ross Trustees is a service provider, rather than a manufacturer. While Ross Trustees is committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in its corporate activities, it believes that its supply chains are of low risk. Where we can, we will check with our suppliers that
they share the views and beliefs expressed in this statement.
Ross Trustees has robust HR policies and procedures in place, to ensure the fair treatment of all employees. We comply with all applicable employment legislation relating to employee terms and conditions, including payroll, and we invest in supporting the health and wellbeing
of our staff. We carry out fair and transparent recruitment processes.
Ross Trustees encourages anyone, including employees and contractors to report, in good faith, any issue or concerns about potential unethical business practices, such as fraud and bribery or slavery and human trafficking through our confidential whistle blowing procedure.
This statement is approved by the Board of Ross Trustees Services Limited and Ross Corporate Services Limited.
