Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy
Why you need an Anti Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy
Though we may think of slavery as a something of the past, sadly is continues to be a scourge on the modern world. People are still trafficked around the globe in many industries and slavery still exists, even right under our noses. Action against human trafficking and slavery must be taken in all levels of society, from the individual to international bodies.
What is an Anti Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy?
The UK government requires that large business issue an annual statement against modern slavery and human trafficking. An obligation is placed on these companies to ensure that it doesn’t exist in their place of work or occur in their supply chains. Practically speaking, companies need to have a Modern Slavery and Anti-trafficking Policy, and perhaps even clauses in their business contracts that reflect the same.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do small businesses have to have an Anti Slavery policy?
A: By law, a small business does not need to issue an anti-slavery and human trafficking policy or statement. However, larger businesses not only have to issue an annual statement, but also take reasonable steps to ensure companies they work with are compliant. Therefore, a smaller business having a policy in place is a good way to show that they are compliant to third parties.
Q: What are the Anti Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy requirements?
A: The aim of the policy is to engage all staff to recognise and report any potential concerns relating to slavery or human trafficking. The requirements set out in the policy requires employers to provide reasonable training for employees, especially if there are identified areas of risk.
