The Bradley Collection Ltd
Human Rights Policy Statement

Version 1 – 22nd April 2022

 

Overview

The Bradley Collection Ltd commits to acting in accordance with the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

 

Scope

Our Human Rights Policy applies to all our staff. We also expect our suppliers to respect and adhere to this policy.

 

Principles

We will:

Avoid causing or contributing to adverse human rights impacts through our own activities.

Use our endeavours to prevent or mitigate adverse human rights impacts that are directly related to our operations, products and services through our business relationships.

 Address any such impacts in a timely and appropriate manner, should they inadvertantly occur.

Seek additional ways to support the promotion of human rights within our operations and our sphere of influence.

 

Policy

This sets out our position with respect to human rights and modern slavery and sits alongside our Employee Handbook and Health and Safety Policy:

Statement 1 – Child Labour: we will not use child labour and will comply with all relevant laws in this regard..

Statement 2 – Modern slavery: we will not use forced, bonded or involuntary labour, and workers are not required to lodge ‘deposits’ or identity papers with us and are free to leave after giving reasonable notice, with all wages owed to be paid.

Statement 3 – Health, Safety and Hygiene: All our staff will work in an environment that is both safe and healthy, in line with our UK Health and Safety Policy.

Statement 4 – Discipline: We prohibit physical abuse or discipline, the threat of physical abuse, bullying, sexual or other harassment and verbal abuse or other forms of intimidation. Disciplinary and grievance procedures are clearly documented and communicated to all employees in our Employee Handbook. All disciplinary measures of a serious nature are recorded and actioned.

Statement 5 – Freedom of Association and Employee Representation: we recognise that our employees have the right to form and join organisations of their own choosing. We seek employees’ views, respect employees’ rights to belong to trade unions and fully comply with our legal obligations to inform and consult employees.

Statement 6 – Working Hours: we will ensure that working hours are reasonable and comply with the law and industry standards.

Statement 7 – Equality of Treatment: we do not allow discrimination in recruitment, training and working conditions, on grounds of race, colour, sex, age, religion, political opinion, national extraction, sexual orientation, disability or social origin. We believe in equality of opportunity and treatment.

Statement 8 – Employment terms: we provide written contracts which detail the terms and conditions of staff employment.

Statement 9 – Remuneration: we will provide wages and benefits that meet national minimum levels and will seek to pay beyond these minimums whenever possible. We are committed to equal pay and benefits for men and women for work of equal value.

 

Grievance and remediation

Should a human rights violation be identified, we will work with all parties involved to seek access to remedy, compensation and justice for the victim. We’ll also investigate the root cause so that we can take appropriate steps to prevent such a violation reoccurring.

All staff are invited to contact any of the directors of the company with any grievance.

 

Implementation

Jonathan Hawley is responsible for our Human Rights Policy. The policy will be reviewed on an annual basis. Our Human Rights Policy is accessible to our staff via staff noticeboards or on request and to other interested parties via our website www.bradleycollection.com .
