Our policy is to directly employ staff working on our contracts. We ensure we comply with the relevant legislation relating to employment in the countries in which we operate, including any minimum wage, holiday, maternity, or other entitlements.
Where it is necessary to employ agency staff the period of employment will always be kept to a minimum.
We intend to select partners who are affiliated to the ‘Association of labour providers’. We will ensure that all agencies provide evidence that they comply with the Modern Slavery Act, TISC (transparency in the supply chain) and IR:35.
