This page sets out the Morgan Hunt approach to operating with Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) workers. Morgan Hunt themselves will not be paying sub-contractors directly but we will allow workers to be paid via CIS through our Umbrella Partners who operate the scheme. Our current Umbrella partners for CIS will be:
CIS workers will be genuinely Self-Employed so for CIS to be deemed Compliant with HMRC we must make sure we have followed the below process. This will protect Morgan Hunt as the liability for the workers tax and NI would fall to Morgan Hunt should the process not be followed or HMRC deem the role to not be self-employed. This hinges on the concept of Supervision, Direction and Control (SDC), if the worker is under the SDC of the Client in the manner in which they perform their duties then they cannot be classified as self-employed.
The below process needs to be followed in order for CIS to be compliant:
To achieve our sustainability objectives Morgan Hunt expects suppliers to adopt, and further develop, practices that are environmentally sound, socially responsible and ethical, based upon the following four principles:
Care for Life
We care about the people and the environment. We work safely, or not at all. We never walk by if we notice unsafe actions. We support health and well-being. We promote green solutions and conduct our operations in an environmentally responsible way. We are accountable for future generations.
Act ethically and transparently
We do business with a high degree of integrity and transparency. We live by our core values and never accept shortcuts. We train our staff to identify the signs of modern slavery and human trafficking and to report any suspicious activity. We foster a working climate where everyone can speak their mind.
Be Better Together
We always strive to be better in all we do. We are a learning organisation and generously share our expertise. We take pride in quality and innovation. We build Morgan Hunt teams together with customers, partners and communities. We leverage diversity to deliver the best solutions. We foster an inclusive culture where we are open and fair, showing trust and respect for each other.
Commit to Customers
We help our customers to be successful in their business. We strive to understand their needs and their customers’ needs. We are here to help our customers turn their visions into reality.
Corruption, bribery and unfair anti-competitive actions distort markets and hamper economic, social and democratic development. Morgan Hunt does not tolerate such activities.
Suppliers shall be able to demonstrate they have procedures in place to deal with the risks of bribery in their organisation in accordance with the Bribery Act 2010.
Morgan Hunt requires its suppliers to apply and uphold these key principles within their own business operation and supply chains. We will carry out ethical audits where appropriate.
