Recent news articles are highlighting the increase in forced labour within the UK.
The Salvation Army has reported 1800 cases of Human Trafficking since 2011, 42% of which were relating to forced labour – a figure higher than that of Sexual Exploitation and Domestic Servitude.
As well as holding our appropriate GLA Licence and SEDEX membership HEADS Recruitment are registered with Stronger Together (www.stronger2gether.org) a network for employers, labour providers, workers and their representatives to work together to reduce exploitation.
By being a part of this network, HEADS Recruitment are extra vigilant in monitoring such things as:
- a candidates behaviour during the interview process
- checking that multiple candidates (4+) aren’t trying to register with us from the same address
- application forms aren’t all completed in the same handwriting
So on and so forth – anything that triggers a Red Flag to us is reported to the appropriate authorities.
As the end user of Labour provision – do your due diligence and help stop this exploitation from growing further.
