Modern Slavery Policy
This statement is made on behalf of Scott Taylor Law Ltd (‘the Company’) trading as Taylor Law pursuant to Section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the Act) and constitutes our Modern Slavery Statement.
This statement is for our financial year ending 30 April 2020.
Taylor Law are committed to practices that respect human rights in all of areas of business and are committed to fair employment practices.
Taylor Law employed 16 people as of 30 April 2020. This number was made up of a self-employed director, employed solicitors, trainee solicitor, legal clerks, administration staff and self-employed consultants.
All our employees receive the statutory employment rights to which they are entitled. Taylor Law ensures all our employees have the legal right to work in the UK. Our employees are provided with a safe working environment to work in and they are treated with dignity and respect.
Modern Slavery awareness training is being rolled out within company by way of an annual training programme. In 2020, role specific training will be provided to those directly involved in managing supply chains to ensure they have the requisite tools and knowledge to deal with any modern slavery concerns.
Given our profession is very unlikely that the services we provide, and goods used are very unlikely to be affected by slavery considerations. The services that we provide to our clients are predominantly office-based and our supply chain largely consists of other regulated professions (solicitors, banks, accountants etc.) and we consider the slavery and human trafficking risk to be extremely low. Consequently, we have taken no specific action during the past financial year in relation to these elements of our supply chain.
Nonetheless, all our suppliers are required to meet minimum standards. We have not deemed it necessary to take any additional steps over and above our standard supplier approval process, but shall maintain assessment, on an ongoing basis, as to whether any additional measures are required.
This is our first statement as a company. To allow for improved risk, we will review our risk management and decision making relating to our employment contracts and supply chains, this work will be ongoing.
