Our modern slavery policy statement
JDR Software are committed to operating our business lawfully and ethically and in only working with suppliers that are aligned to our values.
We are taking steps to identify and address the risk of modern slavery occurring in our operations.
Who does this policy apply to?
This policy applies to all JDR Software employees in any location. JDR Software will also endeavour to ensure that our suppliers, consultants and business partners and their subsidiaries (Business Partners), and their employees, subcontractors and agents (Personnel), also apply this policy.
Our commitment to managing modern slavery and its associated risks
JDR Software is opposed to all forms of modern slavery in our operations and supply chains.
We are committed to taking modern slavery considerations into account when selecting suppliers. We will endeavour to only do business with entities who share our values.
To this aim, JDR Software have developed a supplier due diligence process which incorporates a Supplier Due Diligence Checklist. Where possible, we will ask our new suppliers to complete the supplier due diligence checklist as part of our supplier selection process to allow us to identify any modern slavery risks and to take reasonable steps to address them.
We will also work with our Business Partners and their Personnel to assist them in their understanding of modern slavery risks and adoption of best practices.
What is modern slavery?
In plain terms, modern slavery occurs when a person is not free to leave their workplace. Some examples include:
In Australia and many other countries, modern slavery is a serious crime.
Red flags that can indicate a risk that instances of modern slavery will occur include:
- workers being required to pay fees or costs for recruitment including travel costs, and visa processing costs;
- employers withholding worker identity documents such as work permits, visas, or passports;
- poor working conditions;
- workers being required to work to pay off debts owing to their employer; and
- employers not providing written contracts of employment to workers.
In engaging with our Business Partners, we must be alert to these red flags.
How can a report be made?
Any concerns relating to modern slavery risks in our operations or the operations of our Business Partners should be reported to the JDR Software Office Manager.
We expect and encourage anyone involved with our business to report known or suspected violations of this policy and applicable laws, regulations, policies and ethical standards related to modern slavery. Retaliation for raising these concerns is strictly prohibited.
We also encourage our Business Partners to create processes for reports to be made within their own businesses, if they don’t already have such processes.
