Modern slavery statements consultation: How will employers' duties change?
Author: Susie Munro
The Government is consulting on proposed changes to the duty to publish a modern slavery and human trafficking statement. The proposals aim to improve the quality of reporting under the transparency in supply chains legislation, make it easier for people to compare organisations' reports and increase compliance with the duty.
The consultation also covers plans to extend the reporting duty to large public-sector bodies.
We look at the details of the proposals in the Transparency in supply chains consultation and how they might affect employers.
The consultation runs until 17 September 2019.
