Curteis Limited is a leading precious metal manufacturer. This policy confirms our commitment to respect the fundamental rights and freedoms in accordance with The Human Rights Act 1998. Our support for these fundamental principles is reflected in our policies and practices regarding employees, suppliers, customers and the areas in which we operate.
We believe that our employees should be treated with respect and dignity and work in an environment that is free from harassment and unlawful discrimination. Our commitment to respect human rights is manifested in our Employee Handbook and HR Policies and procedures, specifically:
The Employee Handbook is periodically reviewed and amended where appropriate to ensure that it continues to reflect best practice and legal requirements. An external consultancy has been engaged to ensure the Company is updated as to any new legislation. Employees are expected to uphold these standards and are encouraged, via regular meetings, to raise issues and report suspected violations of applicable laws, regulations and policies.
We strive to promote adherence to Human Rights principles detailed above throughout our supply chain via our Supply Chain Policy. We see our relationships with our suppliers as an opportunity to share best practice and through open communication, to promote mutual, continual learning and improvement with respect to human rights.
We are continually working to build and maintain relationships with organisations that share our commitment to upholding and implementing the fundamental principles of Human Rights and strive to promote best practice within our sphere of influence. We openly welcome inspection and auditing processes to ensure we continue to develop a robust and transparent Human Rights Policy.
