Slavery and Human Trafficking are activities made illegal by the Modern Slavery Act 2015. This Act introduced a number of measures to prevent slavery and human trafficking including reporting on our workforce, confirming that our employees are not enslaved or trafficked and actively monitor our supply chain.
Maids Commercial Services is committed to our part towards the prevention of Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking.
All staff are vetted according to our vetting policy, paid the minimum wage or above and directly into their own bank accounts. The HR Officer and Managing Director are responsible for checking all new employee documents to ensure they comply with the policy.
Our Policy ensures that employees are able to discuss any concerns they may have with the Managing director, HR Officer or supervisors. Staff are encouraged to communicate any suspicions they may have and if they think a colleague may be affected by slavery or trafficking.
Staff can air their complaints anonymously by contacting the HR officer or Managing Director confidentially.
Our Supply Chain
The company works with a number of subcontractors and suppliers who enable us to deliver our services to our clients. All our subcontractors must complete a pre-qualification questionnaire and supply compliance documentation before being approved.
Our main subcontractors are closely managed by our Manging Director, compliance checks are made on an annual basis, and quarterly KPIs are monitored
Compliance audits of our subcontractors will also include checks on their own Modern Slavery Policies and company risk assessments.
