Designed to combat modern slavery in the UK. Consolidates previous offences relating to trafficking and slavery.
The Modern Slavery Act 2015 places obligations on businesses with a turnover of £36 million or over to ensure that their business, and the supply chains used by the business, are free from modern slavery.
The Act requires businesses to include an annual "modern slavery statement" in each annual report. A link to the statement must also be included on the website of the business. In order to provide this statement, a business needs to ensure that it has carried out appropriate due diligence on its supply chains to enable it to accurately reflect risk and identify appropriate mitigation strategies.
The employer's slavery and human trafficking statement might include information on: its structure, business and supply chains ;its policies in relation to slavery and human trafficking; its due diligence processes in relation to slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chains; the parts of its business and supply chains where there is a risk of slavery and human trafficking taking place, and the steps that it has taken to assess and manage that risk; its effectiveness in ensuring that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in its business or supply chains, measured against such performance indicators as it considers appropriate; and the training about slavery and human trafficking available to its staff.
