Would you know how to recognise a victim of modern slavery?
According to latest reports in 2020 from The Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) and the Justice & Care Charity, based on police evidence, we can accurately estimate there are at least 100,000 people kept in slave-like conditions across the UK, which dwarfs the 10,000 working figure estimated by a government study in 2017.
In fact, one of the largest offenders of modern slavery is the UK, with reported cases increasing across many industries, including agriculture, construction, hospitality and manufacturing. The issue is likely to intensify in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and is already costing the UK taxpayer many billions of pounds.
It’s every organisation’s ethical responsibility to ensure managers and employees can identify the characteristics of modern slavery and ensure they remain compliant with the Modern Day Slavery Act 2015.
