Event description

Description

Discover how HR can contribute to abolishing modern slavery


Modern slavery is where one person controls another by exploiting a vulnerability, and it is often linked with human trafficking. Modern slavery is also where a person is forced into service against their will (usually work or prostitution). The control can be physical, financial and/or psychological.


The Modern Slavery Act requires all businesses with an annual turnover above £36 million to publish a yearly statement on Modern Slavery and Trafficking. The statement identifies what steps the organisation is taking to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking are not taking place within its organisation (or its supply chain).


Despite this, one survey indicated that 77% of organisations expected to find modern slavery in their operations or supply chain. Alongside the legal responsibilities, one of the core behaviours in the CIPD Profession Map is ethical practice. If you think slavery is something that used to happen or happens far away, please take a moment to read about a recent case in the West Midlands


Our interactive and conversational style event will focus on what we, as HR professionals, can do to minimise the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking.
