Our Modern Slavery Policy
Last Updated: 1 July 2020
This Policy operates in Australia and covers Marsh Pty Ltd and its related entities (“Marsh”). It complements Marsh’s code of conduct, The Greater Good, which sets out the standards weexpect of our colleagues and business partners.
Modern slavery can occur in various forms, including forced or compulsory labour, discriminatory employment practices, human trafficking, debt bondage or bonded labour, or child labour.
We are committed to conducting our activities fairly, honestly and with integrity, in accordance with the applicable laws. We do not tolerate modern slavery in any part of our business, or in the business of our upstream or downstream business partners. We are committed to ensuring that these type of activities do not take place in our supply chains.
How do we identify Modern Slavery Risks?
The prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery in any part of our business or supply chains is the responsibility of all colleagues working for Marsh. Colleagues are required to avoid any activity which might lead to a breach of this Policy.
If you believe or suspect that slavery is occurring, you must notify your manager as soon as possible, or report the matter via ethicscomplianceline.com.
If you are unsure whether a particular act, the treatment of workers or their working conditions may constitute modern slavery, you should still raise the matter so that it can be investigated.
We aim to encourage openness. We will not tolerate retaliation against any colleague who raises a concern in good faith as a result of reporting their suspicion that modern slavery may be taking place in our business or supply chains.
Members of the public or people not employed by Marsh should write to: The Chief Compliance Officer, Marsh Pty Ltd, One International Towers Sydney, 100 Barangaroo Avenue, Sydney NSW 2000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to raise any concern or suspicion of modern slavery in any part of our business or related supply chain.
How do we enforce the Policy?
If an issue is identified in the business of our upstream or downstream business partners, we will work with them to prepare a corrective action plan and resolve the matter within an agreed timeframe.
We reserve the right to terminate commercial relationships with any business partner if they are found to be involved in modern slavery.
Any colleague who breaches this Policy will face disciplinary action which could result in dismissal for misconduct.
How do we raise awareness of this Policy?
A copy of this Policy is available on our website and on our internal intranet pages for colleagues.
General awareness training is provided to all colleagues when they join Marsh.
Those colleagues closely involved in recruitment and procurement are trained in this Policy.
Our approach to modern slavery must be communicated to all our upstream or downstream business partners at the outset of our business relationship with them and reinforced as appropriate thereafter.
Who is responsible for the Policy?
Responsibility for this Policy rests ultimately with the Board of Directors of Marsh Pty Ltd.
Managers at all levels are responsible for ensuring those reporting to them not only understand but also comply with the Policy.
