Modern Slavery Statement
We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery, both in our own business and in supply chain.
We committed to upholding human rights and acting ethically and with integrity in all of our business dealings and relationships.
We expect all of our suppliers to comply with applicable modern slavery legislation.
As The Peoples Mask is a Canadian, our supply chain risk is minimal.
However, we expect that any supplier we engage shares the views set out in this statement, and has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery. Given the nature of our business, and the geographical location of both our customers and suppliers, we believe that The Peoples Mask is at low risk of slavery or trafficking.
Policies and procedures
We have implemented number of procedures in place to prevent modern slavery from occurring in our business or supply chain:
Background checks are performed to ensure that employees and contractors have a legal right to work.
Employees are treated fairly, in line with our employee code of conduct, and with applicable laws and regulations.
Our vendors and suppliers are assessed for any modern slavery risks as part of vendor risk assessments.
We are committed to regular reviews of our policies and procedures to effectively demonstrate our commitment to standing against modern slavery and human trafficking.
