Anti-modern slavery and human trafficking policy

Intellias creates and supports a human-to-human culture. We’ll never back down on that no matter how fast we grow. We create a comfortable environment for our specialists and believe that the best tech solutions can only be developed in an atmosphere of respect and support.

The aim of this policy

This policy aims to communicate a company’s attitude and commitment towards modern slavery, forced labor and human trafficking.

Definitions

Modern slavery — illegal exploitation of people for personal or commercial gain, including sexual exploitation, domestic servitude, forced labor, criminal exploitation and organ harvesting.

Forced or compulsory labor — any work or services people are forced to do against their will under threat of punishment.

Forced Child Labor — work that deprives children of their childhood, their potential, and their dignity, and that is harmful to physical and mental development.

Human trafficking — recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring, or receipt of persons by means of threat or use of force or other forms of coercion with the intent of exploiting that person for sexual exploitation, forced labor, or slavery, among other forms.

The Committee will hold a meeting to address an incident no later than three business days after the request was made. If necessary, the Committee collects additional information, arranges meetings with the parties involved, and as a result decides based on the Intellias values.

All issues are treated confidentially to the extent possible. Intellias guarantees that such a request will be considered and will not have any negative consequences for the employee who filed the complaint.

It is important for Intellias to ensure that no kind of discrimination is tolerated. If you have thoughts, ideas, and suggestions for improving our policies or projects we encourage everyone to share them with Oleksandra Chuchko, CSR Specialist.
