Statement 

Human Rights Act 1998 - How is Streetwave Compliant? 

This act allows citizens to defend their rights in UK courts & compels public organisations to treat everyone equally, with dignity, fairness & respect. This protects all – young, old, rich & poor.  

There are twelve human rights that are particularly relevant to the workplace including:

  2. Right to equal pay for equal work  
  3. Right to organise and participate in collective bargaining

  5. Right to non-discrimination  
  6. Right to just and favourable remuneration  
  7. Abolition of slavery and forced labour  
  8. Right to safe work environment  
  9. Abolition of child labour  
  10. Right to rest and leisure  
  11. Right to work

Modern Slavery Act 2015 – How is Streetwave Compliant? 

Modern slavery is a term which encapsulates slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking. Commercial organisations covered by the act (and with a turnover of over £36 million) are required to produce a slavery and human trafficking statement for each financial year, setting out what steps they have taken to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in their business and supply chains. 

Streetwave is not required by law to create an annual slavery and human trafficking statement. However, at Streetwave we have a zero-tolerance policy to using suppliers that engage in slavery and human trafficking practices.  

If suppliers are found to be in breach of these requirements, Streetwave will swiftly switch to alternative providers. This is relevant to suppliers providing hardware, information or cloud storage services.
