The UK Modern Slavery Act became law in March 2015 and has now become a very high profile issue for organisations, not least due to the recent £40M government boost to battle against modern slavery in the UK.
The legislation includes several new obligations, including a requirement on organisations with a turnover of £36M or more to prepare an annual slavery and human trafficking statement. As part of their modern slavery strategy, organisations are likely to need to appoint someone senior to be responsible for compliance, as the Act has numerous repercussions and involves risk assessments, due diligence and the introduction of new policies and training practices. Modern slavery may be unfamiliar territory to many organisations.
This one-day training course provides a thorough foundation in practical modern slavery, covering all critical areas including:
- what is the UK Modern Slavery Act?
- examples of companies implicated in modern slavery, and human trafficking
- what the Act means for my organisation
- how to manage third-party compliance
- the modern slavery dilemma
- what other organisations are doing
- training, education and communication
- modern slavery strategy and policy
- the annual slavery and human trafficking statement, including compliance measures
Delegates have the opportunity to work through a number of practical case examples and a major case study drawn from industry-specific scenarios, supported by relevant internationally-published Whitepapers produced by the course Trainer. The course is highly interactive, with plenty of opportunity for questions.
