Mavenir is committed to providing the highest ethical standards and have a wide scope of global and local policies to ensure the utmost compliance in human and employment rights.

The following statement constitutes the slavery and human trafficking statement of Mavenir Private Holdings II Ltd and all direct or indirect wholly owned subsidiaries (referred to as ‘Mavenir’) in respect of the financial year February 2019 to January 2020.

 

Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy Overview

Mavenir has in place clear policies to prevent slavery and human trafficking in its own organization and very seriously considers the dangers of such malpractices in the supply chain. Mavenir does not tolerate these activities within the organization or supply chain and is committed to taking appropriate steps to ensure everyone’s rights and freedom are respected.

The Mavenir company policy is to ensure that all operations and transactions are within the laws of the countries where it operates.  further seeks to apply the highest international standards, wherever possible, in the way people are employed and do business. Mavenir also applies such standards to the management of outsourced services, temporary workers, and self-employed contractors.

Amongst Mavenir’s principal concerns is ensuring that no suppliers use child labor for the fulfillment of orders for goods or services. All suppliers must also ensure that they do not rely on illegal immigrants or those trafficked by either gangmasters or work agencies charging potential employees for their services in order to operate in any part of their organizations, contractors, or subcontractors. Therefore, all suppliers are required, as part of their contractual relationship, to sign contracts that include undertakings as set out above.

Mavenir takes steps through regular inspections of supplier operations to ensure that both product/service quality is maintained and that the above undertakings are fully met. Where any requirement is found out of compliance the supplier shall be given eight weeks to rectify it. If not fully rectified then the supply contract will either be suspended, a contractually agreed penalty applied, or the contract will not be renewed at the date when the current contract comes to an end.

All managerial and executive employees of Mavenir are made fully aware of the company’s policies in these fields and required to comply with them. The requirements are mainstreamed into in-house training activities and is a mandatory subject to be covered during annual performance appraisal meetings for managers and executives.

If any manager or executive of Mavenir is found to have infringed on this policy, encouraged its infringement, neglected to take its requirements seriously, or failed to take remedial steps when necessary then they shall be subject to disciplinary sanctions.
