Modern Slavery Policy

Pendulum Contracting Services Limited (“Pendulum”) operates an ethical and open approach to the way we do business.

Pendulum recognises that it has a responsibility to take a robust approach to slavery and human trafficking. Following the implementation of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, we are committed to maintaining and enforcing effective systems and controls to prevent slavery and human trafficking, and to ensuring that our supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.

Modern slavery is criminal activity and a violation of human rights. The deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain is unacceptable. For these reasons, Pendulum operate a zero tolerance approach.

This policy applies to all members, employees, agents, consultants and those parties in our supply chain, wherever in the world they operate. Any reported breach of this policy will be investigated and may lead to legal proceedings or disciplinary action, which subsequently could result in employee dismissal.

Pendulum are committed to taking all necessary steps to ensure the workforce we and our suppliers engage is free from effects associated with modern slavery, human trafficking, forced or bonded/imprisoned labour.

Pendulum will conduct right to work checks on every employee within its employment upon registration.
