The Modern Slavery Act 2015 requires any company turning over £36 million or more to publish a statement each financial year in a prominent place on its website. This statement should include:

– The structure of the business and its suppliers

– The policies in place in relation to modern slavery and human trafficking

– Any due diligence processes in relation to slavery and human trafficking

– Any risks of slavery and human trafficking and how those risks have been addressed

– Any measures to make sure slavery and human trafficking isn’t part of the business

– Any training available to staff in relation to slavery and human trafficking

–  The signature of a Director

Any eligible businesses should now have a statement in place and business that do not have one should now be drafting one as soon as possible to be compliant with the Act.
