YHFF™ Masterclass: Modern Slavery and the Real Cost of Human Trafficking

Wednesday 22 July 2020

Please note that due to Coronavirus restrictions, this Masterclass will be delivered online. Joining instructions will be circulated in due course.

We are delighted to welcome Andrew Tennant, Director of Policing at London Risk Group, economic crime subject matter expert and former Police Detective, to the second Masterclass of 2020.

Following the enactment of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 (‘MSA’), all legally required commercial organisations need to comply with section 54 of the MSA, known as “Transparency in Supply Chains”.

Obligated organisations are required to:
• Update and publish a Modern Slavery Statement every year;
• Publish the statement on their UK website;
• Have the statement approved by the Board of Directors; and
• Have the statement signed by a director (or equivalent).

This good practice is not confined to the private sector. The UK Government also published its own Modern Slavery Statement in March 2020, following September 2019 guidance setting out the steps that all ministerial government departments must take to identify and mitigate modern slavery risks throughout the commercial life cycle. Individual ministerial departments are preparing to publish their own Modern Slavery Statements from 2021 onwards.

Good governance can help to mitigate an organisation’s risks in respect of modern slavery, but what does this mean in real terms? How does it help those that are actual or potential victims of the modern slave trade?

In this Masterclass, Andrew will discuss the requirement for organisations to produce a Modern Slavery Act Statement and delve beyond the corporate viewpoint to discuss real life cases which illustrate the true impact of human trafficking on its victims.
