Anti-Slavery Policy

Aims of this policy

Right Recruitment 24-7 Limited has a zero-tolerance approach to Modern Slavery and this policy supports our commitment to preventing the risk of modern slavery occurring within our own business or any other business relationship.

The policy applies to all persons working for or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees, directors, officers, agency workers, contractors, consultants, apprentices and any other third-party representative.

We expect all who have or seek to have a business relationship with the company to familiarise themselves with this policy and to act at all times in a way that is consistent with its values.

What do we mean by modern slavery?

Modern slavery can take many forms. It is a complex and multi-faceted problem. The Modern Slavery Act (MSA) covers four key criminal activities:

Slavery - where ownership is exercised over an individual
Servitude - involves the obligation to provide service imposed by coercion
Forced and compulsory labour - all work or service, not voluntarily performed, which is obtained from an individual under the threat of force or penalty.
Human trafficking - involves arranging or facilitating the travel of another with a view to exploiting them

Other forms of modern slavery, which we will not tolerate, but are not specifically referenced in the MSA include, but are not limited to:

Child labour: whilst not always illegal in the jurisdiction in which it takes places, child labour involves the employment of children that is exploitative, or is likely to be hazardous to, or interfere with, a child's education, health (including mental health), physical wellbeing or social development.

All forms of modern slavery have in common the deprivation of a person's liberty by another in order to exploit them for commercial or personal gain and amount to a violation of an individual's fundamental human rights.

Tackling modern slavery requires us all to play a part and remain vigilant to the risk in all aspect of our business and business relationships.

How we seek to embed our anti-slavery policy in practice

As a Recruitment Agency supplying workers into many sectors, we understand our responsibility to help any of our workers or potential workers who may be being subjected to Modern Slavery. We do this through the following measures;

  • Interviewing all candidates on a one-to-one basis, thus ensuring that any potential worker can speak openly during their interview.
  • Ensuring that all workers are paid into their own bank account. Where there is a legitimate reason that they do not have their own account we will only pay into someone else's when we are happy that the account holder is a direct relation and the worker.
  • Checking whether our workers display any of the red flags of labour exploitation such as looking dishevelled and unkempt, a number of workers sharing contact details such as telephone numbers or addresses and signs of physical abuse.
  • We recruit all of our own workers, we do not use any third parties to assist with recruitment.
  • As per our Ethical Policy, should a company with a proven record for ignoring Human Rights, Modern Slavery issues and ethical standards (who have taken no steps to improve these) approach our business, we will not offer our services to them.

Responsibility for this policy

The board of directors has overall responsibility for this policy and in ensuring that the Company complies with all its legal and ethical obligations.

All line managers are responsible for ensuring that those reporting directly to them comply with the provisions of this policy in the day-to-day performance of their roles.
