Modern Slavery statements

There are plans to increase the number of companies that need to produce a Modern Slavery statement. In this statement, you will need to set out the steps you are taking to combat modern slavery, including your own operations and your supply chains.

Now, public sector organisations with a budget of at least £36 million will be required to publish a statement. Statements will also be required to cover specific topics and be published on the government registry.

It has not been confirmed when the new requirements will come into force, but the registry is expected to be launched in ‘early 2021’.

If you would like more specific advice on how these changes could affect your business please get in touch with your usual contact or email: emma.jewell@wansbroughs.com.
