In the United Kingdom, the Modern Slavery Act 2015 requires certain commercial organisations to disclose, in an annual statement, actions they take to prevent slavery and human trafficking from their supply chains and in any part of their business. Employees can support their companies' policies and the drive to prevent modern slavery through greater awareness. In this course, you'll be introduced to the reality of modern slavery and the forms it can take. You'll also learn what basic elements must be included in a company's slavery and human trafficking statement, and what sanctions may be imposed for failing to comply with the Modern Slavery Act.
