2.3 The control process
To ensure spikr’s compliance, prior to any member of staff commencing employment (either on a temporary or permanent basis) relevant checks are undertaken to ensure the individual has the legal right to work within the UK. spikr’s ongoing compliance includes highlighting where appropriate and ensuring recognition of any contravention of law relating to modern slavery is dealt with appropriately and efficiently.
spikr audits its own internal processes as a part of its wider compliance management obligations.
Any issues identified which contravene modern slavery legislation are dealt with promptly and any corrective and/or preventative measures are put into place as necessary.
