We have experienced many changes in employment legislation and see one of our major roles as being to protect candidates from being discriminated against and to protect clients from any potential discriminative acts and legislative risks to their business.
All of our staff are comprehensively trained in the main Legislative Acts, including those relating to sex, age, race, disability discrimination, the right to work in the UK, the Working Time Regulations and the Agency Workers Regulations.
We have been approved under the Gangmaster’s Licensing Act and, as well as being members of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation, we are members of the Association of Labour Providers.
Gi Group UK was the first agency to be “Audited and Approved” by the Freight Transport Association (FTA) following a thorough review of the company’s compliance management systems.
The provision of a low risk service through working with both our clients and drivers is a high priority to us, and the protection of the Operators and Drivers Licences through legislative compliance is reflected in our processes.
All of our staff dealing with the logistics market are comprehensively trained in Road Transport (Working Time) Regulations and EU Drivers’ Hours Rules and are obtaining an FTA Certificate of Professional Competence in Recruitment Practice. Many of our operational staff are FTA approved Digital Tachograph trainers.
