Code of practice

Code of practice

On 9 March 2018 it will be one year since we launched the Code of Practice on Ethical Employment in Supply Chains.

The code is designed to ensure that workers in public sector supply chains are employed legally and fairly, and that slavery and unethical employment practices are not tolerated.

Swansea Council recently hosted a public sector community of interest, to share progress, good practice and expertise around the sector. We look forward to working with organisations and businesses in the coming months to secure sign-up to the code of practice, as they put in place action plans and processes.

All organisations that receive funding from Welsh Government, either directly or via grants or contracts, are expected to sign up to the Code. Other organisations in Wales are encouraged to sign up too.

Please share this video with your suppliers and colleagues.

For practical guides to help put the code into practice see Code of practice: Ethical employment in supply chains (external link).
