Our commitment to the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015
Trackuz Telematics Ltd is committed to the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the abolition of modern slavery and human trafficking. We acknowledge the role that we can play to help to bring this about.
We are an equal opportunities employer, fully committed to creating and ensuring a non-discriminatory, inclusive and respectful working environment for all our staff. We want all our staff to feel confident that they can expose wrongdoing without any risk to themselves
Our recruitment and people management processes are designed to ensure that all prospective employees are legally entitled to work in the UK and to safeguard employees from any abuse or coercion.
We recognise that, as a purchaser of goods and services, we have the opportunity to influence good practices in the employment of people by other organisations.
We do not enter into business with any organisation, in the UK or abroad, which knowingly supports or is found to be involved in slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour.
Here are the steps Trackuz Telematics Ltd has taken and continues to take to understand and minimise the potential risk of modern slavery in its business and supply chains.

We require our suppliers to confirm that they have fulfilled their statutory requirement to have produced a Modern Slavery Statement if they meet the criteria to do so.
