Managing Modern Slavery Risks – Practical Steps

From assessing modern slavery in your supply chains to understanding your legal and regulatory obligations, learn what makes a successful risk management programme.

Modern slavery legislation across the globe is becoming increasingly common as a way to prevent and manage the risk of human rights violations.

Modern slavery and human rights reporting regimes already exist in the UK, France, California and Australia.
