Modern Slavery Act 2015 Statement

Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.

Response Recruitment Ltd operates as an Employment Business and we are fully aware of the risks involved in the supply of Temporary Labour.

We are committed 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 workforce. We also expect the same commitment in our supply chains.

As a result of this commitment we constantly review our workplace policies and procedures to assess their effectiveness in identifying and tackling any modern slavery issues. We operate a robust recruitment policy, including conducting eligibility to work in the UK checks for all employees to safeguard against human trafficking or individuals being forced to work against their will.

We regularly conduct training for our staff so that they understand the signs of modern slavery and what to do if they suspect that it is taking place within our organisation or supply chain.

As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risks we have in place systems to:

  • Identify and assess potential risk areas in our workforce
  • Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our workforce
  • Work with our supply chainsto identify and assess potential risk areas
  • Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains
  • Protect whistle blowers

We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, the training we provide to our staff is ongoing. We also require our business partners to provide training to their staff and suppliers as well as their providers to mitigate potential risks.R
