Modern Slavery Act 2015 Compliance Statement from Kutz N Kurlz for 2020/21


This is the first annual Modern Slavery Statement to be published by KNK. This statement covers KNK for financial year ending 30/04/21.

Lawful and ethical behaviour is of paramount importance to KNK and it is critical to our continued success. KNK is committed to protecting and advancing human rights within our salons and all business operations.

This statement outlines the steps KNK has taken to minimise the risk of modern slavery in its business and its supply chains in the last financial year and sets out our future plans.

About KNK And Its Supply Chains

Within the United Kingdom We provide hair and beauty services operating as Kutz N Kurlz (KNK)

Relevant Policies

The KNK Code of Business Conduct and Ethics sets out the expectations that are relevant for all of our team members and for our suppliers wherever we do business in the world. Doing business in an ethical and responsible manner is acknowledged within our current set of policies and procedures. These policies and procedures help to ensure that Slavery and Human Trafficking do not occur within our business or our supply chains.

We continue to maintain a strong culture of ethics and integrity that supports and encourages compliance with these internal policies.

Due Diligence

We are committed to ensuring there is transparency in our business and in our approach to tackling modern slavery throughout our business. We fully expect the same high standards from all of our suppliers.

Risk Assessment

We aim to mitigate risk by ensuring the policy on Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking is understood by our team and that they know who to speak to if there are concerns.

Any reports will be acted upon promptly. KNK team members are also encouraged to report modern slavery issues or concerns in accordance with our Open Door and Whistle blowing policies without fear of reprisal or retribution.

Training

We have provided training on the Modern Slavery Act.

Next Steps

Within the next financial year, we will continue to:

  • Seek to source our supplies in a responsible manner;
  • Continue to expect our suppliers to operate in full compliance with all applicable laws;
  • Maintain our high standards and identify ways to further enhance this.
  • Review contractual terms and suppliers in relation to Modern Slavery
