LogMeIn Statement on the Prevention of Slavery and Human Trafficking
This statement, made pursuant to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, sets out the approach taken by LogMeIn and its affiliated companies to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to its business, and the actions undertaken to mitigate any such risks during the financial year.
LogMeIn’s mission is to unlock the potential of the modern workforce. We set out each day to give the world the products, solutions and services that help people do their best work – whenever, wherever and however. LogMeIn operates in the United Kingdom through its subsidiary LogMeIn Technologies UK Ltd. to which this statement relates.
A substantial portion of our workforce consists of skilled labor. All employees hired by LogMeIn are subject to background checks. LogMeIn also utilizes independent contractors. Because of the nature of the types of jobs performed by our independent contractors, we believe that there is no meaningful risk of modern slavery. LogMeIn generally uses placement agencies to source independent contractors. These agencies are selected following a standard sourcing process with defined business criteria.
We are committed to ensuring that there is no slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. As a software company, due to the nature of our business and our approach to governance, we assess that there is very low risk of slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains. LogMeIn does not use an extensive range of local or international suppliers where modern slavery or human trafficking would generally be a material risk. Our Modern Slavery Statement reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains. However, we aim to periodically review the effectiveness of the relevant policies and procedures that we have in place. We do not have key performance indicators in relation to slavery or human trafficking as any instance would be expected to be a breach of law, our supplier standards or our company policies.
LogMeIn’s Policies and Trainings
LogMeIn’s Employee Handbook (“Handbook”) sets the standards of conduct for those working for or on behalf of LogMeIn which includes LogMeIn’s Code of Ethics (“Code”). The Handbook is subject to regular review and is updated accordingly to ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in the supply chains and to the business.
LogMeIn is committed to providing a safe and violence-free work environment. Therefore, the Company has implemented a zero-tolerance policy of violence, threats of violence or any other illegal activity in the workplace. LogMeIn has mechanisms for its employees to ask questions or report concerns about possible violations of the Code, LogMeIn policies and laws. This would include any questions or concerns relating to slavery or human trafficking. Our Code has procedures and contact information for raising such matters, and we provide in our Code that retaliation will not be tolerated.
