Code of Conduct
The following code is intended to stand as a basis for fair and ethical practices in the international recruitment, placement and employment of foreign personnel intended for use in the German health care system. GLOBOGATE will adhere to this basis and is concerned that all its business partners will follow it.
The Code is fundamentally based on the recognition of the WHO Code of Conduct for the International Recruitment of Health Professionals, which - in addition to compliance with the International Convention on Human Rights - represents the supreme guideline for cooperation between business partners. In particular, it serves to uphold the right of individuals to migrate and is based on the understanding that the legitimate interests and responsibilities of health professionals, countries of origin and employers in the destination country cannot conflict with each other.
GLOBOGATE and its business partners voluntarily commit to comply with both the ILO Core Labour Standards, in particular the ILO General Principles and Operational Guidelines for Fair Recruitment, and the IRIS Standards of the International Organisation of Migration.
This essentially results in the following principles that must be taken into account in the context of recruiting workers from abroad:
- Respect for laws, fundamental principles and rights in the workplace.
- Respect for ethical and professional conduct
- Prohibition of recruitment fees and related costs for foreign workers
- Respect for freedom of movement/freedom of movement of persons
- Respect for transparency regarding terms and conditions of employment
- Respect for confidentiality and data protection
- Respect for access to legal remedies
In addition, business partners shall observe that the recruitment and placement process complies with the laws and agreements of all participating countries in which they operate, including relevant labour and immigration laws.
As GLOBOGATE acts on behalf of clients and implements the service packages with business partners contracted by GLOBOGATE who have signed up to this Code, GLOBOGATE verifies as far as possible that the objectives, motivations, contractual obligations, behaviours of all these parties comply with the requirements set out in this Code.
GLOBOGATE and its business partners strictly follow a "no fee policy" for the foreign employee respectively an "employer pays" principle.
Furthermore, GLOBOGATE and its business partners confirm the following:
The foreign workers have the right to be recruited to work in Germany through a process that will be based on a fair, transparent recruitment process and an appropriate working environment and recruitment conditions that meet the assurances given.
Employees have the same rights and obligations as their colleagues in Germany and are responsible for fulfilling their obligations to their recruiter and/or employer.
GLOBOGATE and its business partners confirm that countermeasures will be taken against persons who file a complaint or report a suspected violation of this Code. Employees or other parties who violate this policy will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action by GLOBOGATE and its business partners. This may include (but is not limited to) disclosing the violation to government officials, if required by law, agreement or contract, and not entering into or terminating any contractual relationship with the party concerned.
