This statement is published in accordance with Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 Act and the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (Transparency in Supply Chains) Regulation 2015 (the “Act”). It sets out the steps taken by Invitise Ltd, to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chain.
Invitise Ltd fully supports the Government’s objectives to eradicate modern slavery and human trafficking and recognises the significant role we can play in both combatting it and supporting victims. In particular, we are strongly committed to ensuring our supply chains and business activities are free from ethical and labour standards abuses.
We recognise that being in the recruitment industry, we are exposed to risks relating to the potential violation of human rights in areas including modern slavery and human trafficking. We are conscious that such risks can arise in certain areas of the sector, in particular nursing, aged care provision, as well as in the manufacturing of healthcare equipment. We are committed to monitoring such risks in our business and in our wider supply chain and to mitigating them.
Steps taken to date include:
We promote a workplace environment that is fair, open and respectful, and one that protects the rights and dignity of all employees. We operate people practices, contracts of employment and collective agreements that are lawful and aligned to our Code and values.
We confirm the identities of all new employees, temporary workers and contractors and their right to work in the United Kingdom, and pay all our employees above the National Living Wage
Our Respect at Work, Grievance and Voicing your Concerns for Staff policies additionally give a platform for our employees to raise concerns about poor working practices.
We use social media to raise awareness and invest in training to ensure front line staff are aware of and able to respond to incidents of modern slavery
