The Organisation considers that modern slavery encompasses:

  • human trafficking
  • forced work, through mental or physical threat
  • being owned or controlled by an employer through mental or physical abuse or the threat of abuse
  • being dehumanised, treated as a commodity or being bought or sold as property
  • being physically constrained or to have restriction placed on freedom of movement.


EJT Group acknowledges its responsibilities in relation to tackling modern slavery and commits to complying with the provisions in the Modern Slavery Act 2015. We understand that this requires an ongoing review of both its internal practices in relation to its labour force and, additionally, its supply chains.

EJT Group companies do not enter into business with any other organisation, in the United Kingdom or abroad, which knowingly support or is found to involve itself in slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour.

No labour provided to EJT Group companies in the pursuance of the provision of its own services is obtained by means of slavery or human trafficking. EJT Group companies strictly adhere to the minimum standards required in relation to its responsibilities under relevant employment legislation in the UK and in many cases exceeds those minimums in relation to its employees or contractors.

Supply chains

To fulfil our activities, the main supply chains of EJT Group companies are those related to construction activities in both the UK and occasionally from Europe.  We understand that our first-tier suppliers are intermediary traders and therefore have further contractual relationships with lower-tier suppliers.

Potential exposure

EJT Group companies consider their main exposure to the risk of slavery and human trafficking to exist with lower tier suppliers and intermediary traders carrying out works on our construction sites.

In general, EJT Group considers our exposure to slavery/human trafficking to be very small.  Nonetheless, we have taken steps to ensure that such practices do not take place in our business nor the business of any organisation that supplies goods and/or services to us.


EJT Group companies carry out due diligence processes in relation to ensuring slavery and/or human trafficking does not take place within our Company or supply chains, including conducting a review of the controls of our suppliers.

EJT Group companies have not, to their knowledge, conducted any business with another organisation which has been found to have involved itself with modern slavery.

In accordance with section 54(4) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, EJT Group has taken the following steps to ensure that modern slavery is not taking place:

  • Employees or Contractors for all companies in under the EJT Group are made aware of the Act and our position of zero-tolerance so that they are aware and know what to do should a matter of concern be brought to their attention. The companies encourages all workers, customers, and other business partners to report any concerns related to the direct activities, or the supply chains of, the organisation. The companies have whistleblowing procedures designed to make it easy for workers to make disclosures, without fear of retaliation.
  • Making our suppliers and subcontractors aware of our position of zero-tolerance and making compliance a term of our engagement with them.

This statement is made in pursuance of Section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2010 and will be reviewed for each financial year.
