Course Overview

The Modern Slavery Act (MSA) is a wide-ranging Act that affects all businesses and requires them, at a practical level, to keep a careful eye on their own employment practices and those of third-parties with whom they have a business relationship.

Businesses with a financial turnover of more than £36m in global operations have certain additional duties under the MSA, including the provision of a slavery and human trafficking statement once a year. This statement must reflect the steps that have been taken to comply with the requirements of the Act and must demonstrate improvement over time. These businesses will have to pass on these obligations down their supply chains to guarantee compliance so if your organisation tenders for business from a large organisation you must also understand the requirements.

This comprehensive half-day course helps you to understand the risks to your organisation from the different aspects of this legislation and show you how to plan accordingly. It will also explain how to prepare for the annual slavery and human trafficking statement in a manner that is true, proportionate to the relevant risk and involves the right internal and external stakeholders.
