 The Modern Slavery Act (MSA) requires businesses within the UK to be transparent about how they are tackling modern slavery, both within their own operations and also in their supply chains. Those businesses that fall within the reporting threshold have to publish a Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement. The corporate reporting requirements are aimed at ensuring that organisations are taking steps to eliminate slavery from their operations.

For more information on what the MSA requires read our guide.
