the Modern Slavery Act - one year on

9 January 2017
Since Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 came into force, less than 8% of FTSE 500 companies have published a modern slavery and human trafficking statement. With very few organisations complying with aspects of the Act one year on, Raymond and Emma talk about the opportunities of having a well-crafted statement and take a look at the government’s efforts to drive up standards going forward.

To read the latest on this topic please read our blog.


To assist our clients, we have put together a suite of template documents that seek to arm an organisation with the tools its needs to prepare for the Section 54 requirements. Download our product summary for more information about how we can support you and your organisation with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
