Document Purpose

OGL strictly prohibits the use of Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking in its operation and supply chain. OGL is and will continue to be committed to implementing systems and controls aimed at ensuring that Modern Slavery is not taking place anywhere within its organisation, or supply chain.

This Statement has been adopted by OGL’s Board of Directors and is to be communicated to everyone involved in its business to ensure their commitment to it.

Modern Slavery is a term used to encompass slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour, bonded and child labour and human trafficking. Human Trafficking is where a person arranges or facilitates the travel of another person with a view to that person being exploited. Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights.

This Statement covers the OGL Group, which includes OGL Computer Support Limited, OGL Software Limited and CyberGuard Technologies Limited.


This Statement applies to all individuals working within and for OGL at all levels and grades, including Directors, Senior Managers, Staff and Consultants.  This Statement also applies to all individuals and organisations working on OGL’s behalf such as Contractors, Agency Workers, Suppliers and Agents.

OGL’s Commitment To The Principles Of The Modern Slavery Act 2015

OGL is committed to comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the abolition of Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking, this commitment applies to all business activities as a minimum standard. 

OGL is an equal opportunities employer and is committed to creating and ensuring a non-discriminatory and respectful working environment for all staff.  OGL wants all staff to feel confident that they can expose wrongdoing without any risk to themselves.

OGL’s recruitment and people management processes are designed to ensure that all prospective employees are legally entitled to work in the UK and to safeguard employees from any abuse or coercion.

OGL will apply a zero-tolerance approach to any form of Modern Slavery or Human Trafficking and will not enter into business with any organisation which knowingly supports, or is found to be involved, in slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour.
