Introduction

The Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”) was published in March 2015 in response to heightened concern around slavery, human trafficking and forced labour in global supply chains. The Act sets new legal requirements for many companies conducting business across the UK and has led to a review of policies and procedures for ensuring compliance with anti-slavery and human trafficking legislation.
