Modern Slavery Policy


Purpose Modern Slavery is a crime and violation of human rights and is defined under the Australian Modern Slavery Act 2018 (the Act) as including eight types of serious exploitation:

  • trafficking in persons
  • slavery
  • servitude
  • forced marriage
  • forced labour;
  • debt bondage
  • deceptive recruiting for labour or services; and
  • the worst forms of child labour which means situations where children are subjected to slavery or similar practices or engaged in hazardous work.

The purpose of this Policy is to:

  • prevent, detect and respond with mitigating controls to the risk of Modern Slavery occurring within L.C. Dyson’s Bus Services Pty Ltd (Dysons), its supply chain or in any other business relationships
  • demonstrate Dysons commitment to only doing business with those who fully comply with the Act; and
  • ensure compliance with the Act (as may be amended from time to time).

2.   SCOPE

This policy applies to all persons working for and with Dysons or on its behalf in any capacity, including employees, directors, external consultants, third-party representatives and business partners.


Dysons has a zero-tolerance approach to Modern Slavery.

Dysons are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all its business dealings and relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure Modern Slavery is not taking place anywhere in its own business operations or supply chains.

We are also committed to ensuring there is transparency in its approach to tackling Modern Slavery throughout its business and supply chains, consistent with the disclosure obligations under the Act.

The prevention, detection and reporting of Modern Slavery in any part of our business and supply chains is the responsibility of all those working for it or under its control.

Employees who also include contractors, are encouraged to raise concerns about any likely Modern Slavery breaches in any parts of our supply chains or business, at the earliest possible stage.

Dysons expect the same high standards from all of its contractors, suppliers and other business partners. Our processes will include specific prohibitions against the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked labour, or anyone held in slavery or servitude, whether adults or children, and expect suppliers to hold their own suppliers to the same high standards.


At Dysons, we value input and feedback on issues such as modern slavery from all stakeholders.

Our culture of minimising risks and taking responsibility allows us to take a proactive stance on remediation.

Our whistleblower policy gives employees and stakeholders a voice, allowing them to report misconduct and raise any ethics related issues such as modern slavery without fear of reprisal.


The Act requires that an annual statement be prepared and approved for each financial year where the Company has a revenue of at least $100 million.

The annual statement will be approved by the Board and signed by the Managing Director & CEO.

The preparation and submission of the annual compliance statement will be done in association with the Board and Executive Management team.
