Modern Slavery Act Statement 2020

Hudson Contract Limited and associated Hudson Companies have carefully considered Section 54 “Transparency in Supply Chains” of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. Our review has concluded that the services we provide are very unlikely to be affected by slavery, as are the supply chains of those we use for the purchase of administrative products or services from local businesses.

About Hudson

Established in 1996, Hudson Contract is the UK’s largest, and most trusted, audit and CIS contract service within the construction industry, eliminating the financial risk of legitimately engaging self-employed sub-contractors.
We support good relationships between clients and sub-contractors to underpin our business success.

Hudson continues to be committed to the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

As an equal opportunities’ employer, Hudson is committed to creating and ensuring a non-discriminatory and respectful working environment for all our employees. We want all our employees to have confidence that they can bring to light any wrongdoing without any risk to themselves.

Our management processes are written to ensure that all prospective employees are legally entitled to work in the UK and to safeguard them from any abuse or coercion.

We do not enter into business with any organisation, in the UK or aboard, which knowingly supports, or is found to be involved in, slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour.

Our Suppliers

We do not procure any goods and services directly from any countries which are at a high risk of modern slavery or exploitation. Our first-tier suppliers are solely based within the United Kingdom.
