Modern Slavery Statement


This statement applies to Staffscanner Limited (referred to in this statement as ‘the Organisation’). The information included in the statement refers to the financial year beginning April 2022. 


Organisational structure 

The organisation is a managed flexible worker service to Care Providers throughout the United Kingdom with numerous flexible workers registered and working in a variety of roles in our client Care services, including general and specialist nurses and other healthcare professionals.  In addition, the organisation has corporate employees employed to help support its flexible worker services. 

The organisation has a permanent presence within the United Kingdom.  Whilst it does not have any permanent presence within other countries.  



The Organisation considers that modern slavery encompasses: 


  • human trafficking 

  • forced work, through mental or physical threat 

  • being owned or controlled by an employer through mental or physical abuse of the threat of abuse 

  • being dehumanised, treated as a commodity or being bought or sold as property  

  • being physically constrained or to have restriction placed on freedom of movement. 



The Organisation acknowledges its responsibilities in relation to tackling modern slavery and commits to complying with the provisions in the Modern Slavery Act 2015. The Organisation understands that this requires an ongoing review of both its internal practices in relation to its labour force and, additionally, its supply chains. 


The Organisation does not enter into business with any other organisation, in the United Kingdom or abroad, which knowingly supports or is found to involve itself in slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour.  


No labour provided to the Organisation in the pursuance of the provision of its own services is obtained by means of slavery or human trafficking. The Organisation strictly adheres to the minimum standards required in relation to its responsibilities under relevant employment legislation in the United Kingdom and in many cases exceeds those minimums in relation to its employees. 



The organisation takes a robust approach in recruiting both its corporate and flexible workforce.  We communicate directly with all candidates, to discuss any work opportunities and to confirm details of any offer made.  We have robust procedures in place for the vetting of new employees and workers and ensure that we are able to confirm their identities, their right to work in the United Kingdom and that they are paid directly into an appropriate, personal bank account. 

All employees and workers are required to meet with someone from the organisation in person and provide us with their original Right to Work in the United Kingdom documentation for certification and verification.  For any employee or worker with a work permit or visa, we carry out regular audits and management of these documents to ensure they remain valid.  

Whistleblowing Policy 

The organisation encourages all its employees and workers to report any concerns related to the direct activities, or the supply chains of the Organisation.  The Organisation’s Whistleblowing Policy is designed to make it easy for workers to make disclosures, without fear of retaliation.  The policy encourages people to raise concerns directly with their Line Manager or the People Department, but also contains contact details of an independent Charity Digital should an employee wish to seek independent advice on a concern that may have. 

Potential exposure 

In general, the Organisation considers its exposure to slavery/human trafficking to be relatively limited. Nonetheless, it has taken steps to ensure that such practices do not take place in its business nor the business of any organisation that supplies goods and/or services to it.  



The Organisation carries out due diligence processes in relation to ensuring slavery and/or human trafficking does not take place in its organisation or supply chains, including conducting a review of the controls of its suppliers. 


The Organisation has not, to its knowledge, conducted any business with another organisation which has been found to have involved itself with modern slavery. 


In accordance with section 54(4) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, the Organisation has taken the following steps to ensure that modern slavery is not taking place:  


  • Reviewing client contracts to include termination powers in the event that the client is, or is suspected, to be involved in modern slavery 

  • Zero tolerance policy towards modern slavery 

  • Training provided to recruitment staff on modern slavery – how to recognise and actions to take 


Slavery Compliance Officer 

The Organisation has a Slavery Compliance Officer, to whom all concerns regarding modern slavery should be addressed, and who will then undertake relevant action with regard to the Organisation’s obligations.   


This statement is made in pursuance of Section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and will be reviewed for each financial year. 


Date of approval: 21st November 2023
