Due Diligence Processes and Steps to Manage Risks
The process of recruitment within Grevan Cars is reviewed and updated on an on-going
basis. All staff hired have to prove that they have the right to work in the UK by providing
necessary ID documents. If an outside company is providing workers on a sub-contracting
basis, then that company has to provide to Grevan Cars evidence that those workers have
the right to work in the UK and are employed according to UK law and receive at least the
National Minimum Wage for the work carried out. These conditions have to be met prior to
any contract being agreed or signed. The largest number of workers employed on a subcontract
basis are those employed by an outside company to provide valeting services.
Individual sub-contractors, ie builders and other tradesmen, also have to provide evidence
of the right to work and be domiciled in the UK, this information is requested at precontract
Grevan Cars Ltd regularly updates management teams of the risks associated with hiring
staff. Training is undertaken with those involved in recruitment to ensure that staff are
aware of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking. The Staff Handbook is
updated regularly and this is available to all staff to enable reporting or whistleblowing
should there be any cause for concern. If anyone within the organisation is aware that any
suppliers or contractors are not implementing anti-slavery policies, then the reporting
process is explained fully in the Staff Handbook.
Our Effectiveness in Eliminating Modern Slavery
All staff recruited by Grevan Cars have to prove they have a right to work in the UK.
Without this documentation, they would not be hired and the HR department would report
the individual to the relevant authorities to enable investigations to be made to ensure that
human trafficking has not brought this person into the country.
