Modern Slavery Policy


This statement sets out SF Taylor’s actions to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to its business and to put in place steps that are aimed at ensuring that there is no slavery or human trafficking in its own business and its supply chains.

As part of print manufacturing, the company recognises that it has a responsibility to take a robust approach to slavery and human trafficking.

We are absolutely committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in our corporate activities, and to ensuring that our supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.

The policy prohibits activities linked to slavery, forced or involuntary labour and human trafficking. It prohibits charging employees any recruitment fees or deposits, whether that is direct or through agencies or forcing them to work excessive hours. It requires that all employees are given contracts of employment, treated equally and fairly, and paid at least the minimum wage without delays or unlawful deductions and that all migrant workers are treated in accordance with UK legislation and existing all other policies.
