Anti-slavery statement

At TLT we are committed to delivering excellence to our clients and extend this approach to preventing acts of modern slavery and human trafficking from occurring within our business and supply chain.

This statement is made by TLT LLP and TLT NI LLP on 29 April 2018 and applies to all individuals working for or on behalf of TLT LLP and TLT NI LLP in any capacity, including all employees, partners, contractors, external consultants, third-party representatives and business partners, regardless of where they are operating.

The Statement was approved by the Executive Board of the Firm.

TLT's structure

TLT is a national firm, operating as a limited liability partnership registered in England and Wales, with over 1,000 employees and partners across 6 UK offices and a niche team in Piraeus. The Firm's turnover in 2017/18 was £82 million.

Our approach

Due to the nature of the work we undertake, we consider ourselves at low risk of exposure to modern slavery or modern slavery occurring in our supply chain. However, as a firm that strives to achieve the highest standards we have introduced a number of policies that support our commitment to preventing acts of slavery and human trafficking.

Our policies

  • Anti-slavery Policy – ensuring that TLT LLP and TLT NI LLP maintain compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015;
  • Procurement and Supplier Management Policy – ensuring suitable vetting of our supply chain and on-going review of our suppliers;
  • Corporate Social Responsibility Policy – ensuring that TLT LLP and TLT NI LLP operate in a responsible way, making a positive impact on the local and national communities;
  • Recruitment Policy and Screening and Vetting Policy – ensuring that all individuals employed by TLT LLP and TLT NI LLP are appropriately vetted and have the right to work in the UK;
  • Whistleblowing Policy – ensuring fair process and protection for whistle blowers.

Our training

We invest in educating our employees to recognise the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chain. We provide mandatory modern slavery e-learning for all new starters and mandatory annual refresher training for all staff.

Supporting our people and clients with compliance

It is the responsibility of all those working for us or under our control to detect, report and prevent modern slavery from occurring within our business or supply chain. If there are any concerns or suspicions that modern slavery may be present in any parts of our business or supply chain, they should be reported immediately to the Firm's Risk Director.

Our business is categorised as low risk, however, we monitor our supply chain for best practice and to ensure that our suppliers have modern slavery policies in place.

Our next steps

  • We will continue to screen all potential new suppliers and require them to confirm their own and supply chain's compliance with the Modern Slavery Act;
  • We will continue to audit our existing supply chain;
  • We will continue to investigate whether there are any other steps we should be putting into place to reduce the risk of modern slavery.
