The UK government has recently issued statutory guidance relating to the supply chain transparency and reporting obligations of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. With the aim of preventing employment exploitation and increasing disclosure of labour practices, the Act introduces new grounds of compliance for commercial entities.
Organisations captured by the Act not only need to ensure that modern slavery is not an issue in-house, they also need to take, and report on, actions to prevent the issue from occurring within their supply chains.
In this webinar, we will cover:
- An introduction to the Act and its background
- Which companies are captured under the Act
- What captured organisations need to do
- The annual statement and what it needs to look like
- Where to start
