This modern slavery statement outlines the HFMA’s policy to ensure that all employees are treated with respect and dignity, are working under their own free will, and are being properly compensated for their effort. The HFMA is committed to social and environmental responsibility and has zero tolerance for slavery and human trafficking. 

We are committed to improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking and ensuring that we are not complicit in any human rights violations.

Our supply chains

Our supply chain includes agents, suppliers, sub-contractors and consultants for education services.

We internally review our supply chain to evaluate risks and review aspects of the supply chain including, but not limited to, safety, human trafficking, child labour and other legal requirements in order to ensure compliance withal HFMA policies including our slavery and human trafficking policy.

Our slavery and human trafficking policy

We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our policies reflect our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.

There is to be no harsh or inhumane treatment, including any sexual harassment, sexual abuse, corporal punishment, slavery, mental or physical coercion or verbal abuse of workers, nor is there to be the threat of any such treatment.

We are committed to a workforce that is free of harassment and unlawful discrimination, including race, colour, religion, national origin, gender (including pregnancy), age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, HIV status, marital status, past or recent military status or any other status protected by the laws or regulations in the locations where we operate.
