The Modern Slavery Act 2015 (UK) is a giant step in the right direction in getting businesses to address modern-day slavery. But the intricacies of the issue at hand, combined with the complexities of today’s global marketplace, can mean companies are at a loss as to where to start. Our team works with businesses to target their specific concerns in relation to tackling contemporary slavery – and complying with the law.
We worked with Yorkshire Water to provide guidance on meeting two components of the Modern Slavery Act. Specifically their effectiveness in ensuring slavery is not present in its business and supply chains; and identifying the parts of their business where slavery risk exists and what they are doing to manage it.
