Slavery and Human Trafficking
This statement is made by Les Ambassadeurs Club (Les A) pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement for the financial year ending 31 December 2018.
Les A has a zero tolerance approach to any form of slavery, servitude, human trafficking, forced or coerced labour or exploitation. We are absolutely committed to preventing modern slavery and human trafficking in our corporate activities, and to ensuring that our supply chains are free from all forms of slavery and human trafficking. The approach adopted by Les Ambassadeurs, forms part of the broader social responsibility and ethical business standards adopted by the Company.
Les A is the leading high end casino in London, located at 5 Hamilton Place in the heart of London’s Mayfair. Les A operates exclusively in the UK, but has a diverse international clientele of high net worth individuals.
The company has an annual turnover in excess of £36 million.
Our supply chains
Our supply chains include the sourcing of high-end food, beverages, entertainment and other services.
Our policies on modern slavery and human trafficking
We are committed to ensuring that modern slavery and human trafficking play no part in our business or supply chains. All our employees are bound by a Code of Conduct which requires them to report any breach or potential breach of legislation and we have a Whistleblowing Policy through which effective reporting of such matters can be reported by staff.
Les A has been actively engaged with its supply chain throughout the last year in order to satisfy itself that it is contracting with those companies that are engaged in this area and have high ethical standards. This has included writing to all suppliers on the subject and outlining the expectations of Les A when supplying goods and services. There has been board level approval for the increase in the level of visits to suppliers during which procurement personnel are able to assess the supplier and its employees and to assess the risk of modern slavery in that business.
Bespoke training from a senior lawyer for procurement and senior managers has taken place.
In 2018 there will be a renewed focus on supply chain transparency and in the reporting of risk to the Regulatory Compliance Committee. A number of policies including the Social Responsibility Policy and Whistleblowing Policy will be updated to reflect our commitment in this area. Further training packages will be organised for the management team and this will be embedded into the annual training program.
