Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
1. Opening statement from senior management
Just Pay Limited (trading as Event UK) is committed to preventing acts of modern slavery and human trafficking from occurring within its business and supply chain and imposes the same high standards on its suppliers.
2. Structure of the organisation
Event UK is a business in the hospitality and entertainment sector. It employs 30 people and conducts business operations in the United Kingdom. The business has a global annual turnover of up to £100 million. To find out more about the nature of our business, please visit eventuk.co.uk/about.
In order to offer owners and operators of bars, nightclubs and restaurants a safe and hassle-free solution to source and pay third party contractors working in their venues, we work with a range of suppliers in the hospitality sector including (but not limited to) pub chains, performers, musicians, and artists.
As part of our commitment to combating modern slavery, we have implemented an anti-slavery policy.
We also make sure our suppliers are aware of our policies and adhere to the same high standards.
4. Due diligence
As part of our efforts to monitor and reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains, we have adopted due diligence procedures to check specific suppliers with external third parties for any modern slavery risk.
Our procedures are designed to:
- Establish and assess areas of potential risk in our business and supply chains.
- Monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains.
- Reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains.
- Provide adequate protection for whistle blowers.
5. Risk and compliance
Event UK regularly evaluates the nature and extent of its exposure to the risk of modern slavery occurring in its supply chain by regularly reviewing its suppliers and their anti-slavery policies.
We do not consider that we operate in high risk sectors or locations as we thoroughly check supply chains to ensure the potential for slavery and human trafficking is significantly reduced.
We tell the companies we do business with that we are not prepared to accept any form of exploitation.
6. Anti-slavery clause
All our supplier contracts contain an anti-slavery clause. This clause, (to the best of our knowledge), flows down through all layers of our supply chain and prohibits suppliers and their employees from engaging in slavery or human trafficking.
Where we have identified a potential risk, we will investigate it to the best extent of our abilities. If we deem the risk to be valid, we will report it to the necessary authorities and cease to engage or contract with the involved party.
We ensure all our suppliers adhere to our anti-slavery policy. We enforce a strict code of compliance and do not tolerate slavery and human trafficking within our supply chains.
We invest in educating our staff to recognise the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains. Through our training programmes, employees are encouraged to identify and report any potential breaches of our anti-slavery and human trafficking policy.
Employees are taught the benefits of stringent measures to tackle slavery and human trafficking, as well as the consequences of failing to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from our supply chains.
8. Further actions and sign-off
Following our review of our actions this financial year, we intend to continue to monitor and update our policies to tackle slavery and human trafficking as and when needed.
This statement is made in accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Event UK’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year commencing 6 April 2022 and ending 5 April 2023.
