Modern Tyres | Modern Slavery Statement
Modern Slavery Statement.
This statement is made in compliance to Section 54 (1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that Modern Tyres Ltd are undertaking to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking does not take place in any part of our business.
Modern Tyres strives to maintain high ethical standards and respect human rights. We are aware of our moral and legal obligations in relation to combatting forced labour, human trafficking and other forms of slavery. We are dedicated to reviewing & improving our practices in this area on an ongoing basis.
Modern Tyres does not knowingly conduct business with any companies or individuals that tolerate or facilitate human trafficking or slavery.
Modern Tyres was established in 1965, & over the years has constantly expanded. Presently the company operate in excess of 45 depots across the Island of Ireland.
This constant growth has made Modern Tyres into a Nationwide network of retail fast-fit centres and a Southern Ireland tyre wholesale company, making us the largest independent tyre retail / wholesale company in Ireland.
We deal directly with all major tyre manufacturers bringing in containers to their warehouses daily. We stock an extensive range of tyres to service the requirements of today's motorists. We pride ourselves on the service we give our customers and train all our staff to the highest standards who will give advice on the best tyres to suit customer’s needs.
We source a wide range of tyres from suppliers based in both the UK and overseas. In all dealings with our suppliers, we endeavour to ensure the highest ethical standards are reached.
Our policy on slavery and human trafficking
We are committed to implementing effective systems to ensure slavery and human trafficking does not take place anywhere in our supply chains or in any part of our business.
We fully recognise our responsibility to respect and uphold our employees’ human rights, therefore we ensure that all our employees are paid at least the relevant minimum or living wage. We check applicants’ eligibility to work in the UK/Ireland before commencing employment. We ensure employees are made aware of their holiday entitlement and any other benefits or payments which they may be entitled to such as Statutory Sick Pay and Maternity/Paternity pay.
Employees of Modern Tyres are encouraged to remain vigilant about the threat of human trafficking and slavery & are urged to raise any concerns promptly with their manager. This information will be kept strictly confidential.
Modern Tyres operates a zero-tolerance policy on slavery and human trafficking. As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk, we expect our delivery partners, those within our supply chain, and all companies we engage with to ensure their products and labour-related supply chains are free from any ethical uncertainties.
Modern Tyres will take disciplinary action against any employee found to be involved in forced labour, slavery and human trafficking.
As a method of combatting modern slavery & human trafficking, we intend to implement the request for our preferred suppliers to provide their Modern Slavery Act 2015 policy statement as part of the review documentation.
