Modern Day Slavery Statement 2022/23

Slavery, servitude, forced labour and human trafficking (modern slavery) are issues of increasing global concern, affecting all sectors, regions and economies. Modern slavery is fundamentally unacceptable within our business and the supply chain, and is a key focus in our overall approach to business and human rights.

Multicast Audio Limited are committed to respecting, protecting and championing the human rights of all those who come into contact with our operations, including employees, temporary workers, customers and local communities. We accept our responsibility to support transparency and honesty; to find and resolve problems, and to work with others to protect the rights of workers, particularly those who are most vulnerable to abuses such as modern slavery.

This statement has been published in accordance with the Modern Slavery Act (2015). It sets out the steps Multicast Audio Limited will take during the year, ending 30th April 2023 to prevent modern slavery in our business operations and supply chains.

Business Structure

Multicast Audio Limited is based in the UK with a head office in London. The business mainly operates with 2 employees and we consult on entertaintment and broadcast projects as well as supply equipment and crew for projects. Outside of our 2 employees we use trusted sub contractors for on site jobs to allow us to scale our work force as required and use correct skillsets for varied jobs.

Once a candidate becomes an employee of Nexus People, we provide the employee with a temporary work assignment at one of our client sites across the UK. We supply and employ approximately 5,000 temporary workers a week at any one time.

Our sub contractors are true self employed people and are allowed to quote for the work offered by Multicast Audio Limited and all contract terms include travel and substance costs where required.
