About Our Modern Slavery Policy
AccidentClaims.co.uk is a trading name of Pro Lawyers, an organisation owned and operated by JF Law Limited. This policy applies to JF Law Limited, situated at Champions Business Park, Arrowe Brook Road, Birkenhead, Wirral CH49 0AB (referred to as ‘the Firm’). The Firm is authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (Firm Reference Number: 839005). Our full regulatory information can be found here.
The details presented herein pertain to the fiscal year 2023/24.
Framework of the Organisation
The Firm is overseen by a board of directors, and its operational staff is located in the North West of England.
For the intent of this policy, contemporary slavery encompasses human trafficking, forced labour, and employer control through abuse, dehumanisation, and physical restraint.
The Firm acknowledges its duty to combat contemporary slavery and commits to adhering to the Modern Slavery Act 2015. This commitment involves ongoing assessments of internal practices and supply chain procedures.
The Firm refrains from affiliating with entities, whether domestic or international, that endorse or partake in slavery, servitude, or forced labour. The Firm ensures that its staff complies with the employment legislation of the UK.
Primary supply chains involve the provision of legal services. The Firm’s professional services are facilitated through infrastructure at our offices in Merseyside (Liverpool and Wirral) and remote work arrangements.
The primary risk of slavery and human trafficking lies in lower-paid positions within the office infrastructure. Despite limited exposure, the Firm implements stringent measures to prevent such practices in its operations and those of its suppliers.
Impact of Global Events
The risk of contemporary slavery did not escalate during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Firm, maintaining consistent suppliers, promptly implemented remote work, ensuring employee access to the grievance procedure.
The Firm conducts due diligence to prevent slavery in its operations and supply chains. Prospective measures may encompass supplier contract reviews, risk assessments, impact evaluations, action plans, and staff training on contemporary slavery.
Key Performance Metrics
The Firm establishes Key Performance Metrics (KPMs) to gauge its effectiveness in preventing contemporary slavery, with regular assessments to ascertain sufficiency.
The Firm’s internal Recruitment Policy complements our stance on contemporary slavery.
It is the responsibility of our compliance officer to address any concerns related to contemporary slavery and ensure compliance with the Firm’s obligations.
This declaration aligns with Section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, subject to an annual review.
