In 2015 the UK introduced the Modern Slavery Act, we are the first country in the world to specifically address slavery and trafficking in the 21st Century with legislation. The Act implements the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. These are a set of guidelines which help countries and businesses to prevent, address and remedy human rights abuses.
The Procurement team released a communication detailing the impact of the legislation and the actions the University need to take.
