REC expels member for breaching Code of Practice

The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) has expelled the Suffolk-based company Goose Recruit Ltd for breaching its Code of Professional Practice.

The decision was made by the REC Professional Standards Committee (PSC), which comprises business (CBI) and Trade Union (TUC) representatives. Goose Recruit provided no or insufficient evidence to refute the finding by the GLA that they were charging unacceptably high accommodation rates, had no legal system in place to provide holiday pay, and allowed employees to work excessive hours with insufficient breaks.

Commenting on the expulsion, REC Chief Executive Kevin Green said: The REC has an important role to play in ensuring compliance to our standards and making sure members observe the highest principles of ethics, integrity and professional conduct. The REC Code of Professional Practice provides a clear framework of how recruitment businesses should behave. Goose Recruit Ltd was not adhering to the Code and was tarnishing the reputation of REC members and the recruitment industry.

Goose Recruit Ltds case had been referred to the Professional Standards Committee and found to have been in breach of the Code of Professional Practice. Goose Recruit Ltd then appealed against the decision but it was subsequently upheld last week by the RECs independent Appeal Panel.
