Modern Slavery Policy
Plus Us Workforce Solutions LLP is committed to combatting slavery and human trafficking. We regularly review and improve our practices and are keen to work with our healthcare partners, agencies, technology collaborators and staff to eradicate these unacceptable practices
It is essential that those we engage with understand and appreciate the standard of business conduct expected of any company that we do business with and we will only seek to engage with reputable organisations.
Our business provides an effective worker engagement solution to the NHS and healthcare providers. The end to end locum service we offer facilitates the engagement between locum medical workers and Trusts, Healthboards or private organisations in the United Kingdom.
Our Supply Chain
Our supply chains include the below entities working within the medical sector:
- Recruitment Businesses
- NHS Trusts and Health Boards
- Private medical organisations
- Locum professionals
- Interoperability partners
Our policies on slavery and human trafficking
Our Modern Slavery Policy 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 within our business or supply chains.
Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking
We undertake ‘Right to Work Checks’ and maintain a heightened ‘Know Your Client’ process for all overseas nationals looking to secure work in the UK without discriminating against any workers on the basis of their race, nationality, caste, creed or colour.
We have in place processes and systems to:
- Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains with the use of an escalation process through our Compliance Team.
- Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains.
- Monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains.
- Report potential instances of modern slavery and human trafficking.
- Protect whistle blowers.
We undergo a ‘Ways of Working’ consultation with everyone we engage to ensure the worker is comfortable operating in such a manner. As part of our process, we ensure that no one is under undue influence from any third parties to provide services and ensure that individuals are entering into contracts under their own freewill.
Supplier adherence to our ethics
We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking and we are keen to ensure that all those in our supply chain comply with our ethics.
As part of the Brookson Group, Plus Us Workforce Services LLP benefit from the dedicated Compliance Team, which consists of senior personnel from legal and accountancy businesses within the Brookson Group and this team will field any queries or comments from suppliers, customers, employees or regulators in relation to our approach to combatting 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, we provide ongoing training to our staff. Training is also provided to all new employees to ensure they are aware of our stance on preventing slavery and human trafficking within the businesses and supply chains and how to identify if someone is being trafficked.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our Group’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 30 September 2019.
