We work with clients and candidates from all over the world. We have an obligation to treat people equally, with respect and dignity, and to prevent slavery and human trafficking. We commit to doing all we can to prevent slavery and human trafficking within our business and our supply chains.
Modern slavery can take many forms including; people trafficking, forced labour, servitude and slavery. As an established recruitment consultancy we take our responsibility for supplying permanent and temporary workers very seriously. We require our employees to be vigilant and identify the signs of potential exploitation and to alert management who will take prompt action.
All Kosmos Recruitment Limited employees are provided with a legally compliant contract of employment
Employees may leave employment giving reasonable notice. Equally, those who are temping for us on client premises are free to leave their assignment by giving reasonable notice.
Pre-employment identity and immigration checks are made for our employees and our candidates. A delay in providing their passport could indicate a modern slavery issue.
Employees and candidates are treated equally, fairly and with respect for their dignity throughout the sourcing, selection and recruitment process and throughout their on-going employment with, or through, us.
We have zero tolerance for discrimination, victimisation or harassment on the grounds of age, sex (including gender reassignment), race (including colour, ethnic or national origin, nationality), disability, martial or civil partnership status, having or not having dependants, sexual orientation, religious belief or political opinion or trade union activity.
We comply with UK law and industry standards in respect of employee wages, benefits, working hours and minimum age and do not make unauthorised deductions from pay.
Where we provide payroll services for temporary workers, we check that the bank account details provided are in the worker’s own name so that there is no suspicion of coercion, forced labour, servitude or slavery.
These polices are implemented and monitored by Commercial Director, Charlotte Howard-Jones. Please also refer to the Company website, via the link below, for our full statement on Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking.
