Modern Slavery

Modern slavery is a huge problem in society today and takes place in nearly every country in the world. In 2016, the Global Slavery Index estimated that 45.8 million people around the globe were in slavery, while a 2012 survey by the International Labor Organization put the figure at 21 million.

And if you think modern slavery is a problem restricted to third world countries, you’d be wrong! The GSI estimates that 57,700 people in the US and 11,700 in the UK are living in modern slavery.

More about Modern Slavery Compliance Training

There are a number of ways in which people are forced into slavery and trafficking so that unscrupulous individuals can make a profit. Industries in which modern slavery is most prevalent include manufacturing, fishing, clothing, mining, domestic help, forestry, agriculture, construction, etc. If you are dealing with any suppliers in these industries, you need to be extra vigilant to help protect the integrity of your company.

Not only is modern slavery morally and ethically abhorrent, if your business or any suppliers in your supply chain engage in modern slavery, but the reputational damage you could suffer in the eyes of your customers, investors, the public, and the media could also be extremely damaging. Any time you engage with a supplier, contractor, or another third party, you need to conduct thorough due diligence for a number of reasons. One of these is to ensure that any suppliers or other third parties operating in your supply chain implement and follow the same standards you enforce – especially when it comes to the use of any type of labor that could be considered modern slavery.

Our modern slavery compliance training looks at the need to conduct due diligence before engaging suppliers and the need for ongoing monitoring of their practices throughout your relationship with them. Our compliance training also emphasizes the importance of immediately reporting any suspicions if you think that any third parties you work with may be engaging in any practices that could be considered modern slavery.
