Focus on Labour Exploitation (FLEX) has joined leading charities to publish guidance on best practice in addressing modern slavery in corporate activities. The guidance, published today, sets out steps companies could take towards eradicating labour exploitation from their supply chains. It has been produced by leading NGOs in this sector including the CORE Coalition, FLEX, CAFOD and Amnesty International.
Since the inclusion of company reporting requirements in the UK Modern Slavery Act last year, UK businesses have been required to report on activities taken to address modern slavery in their supply chains. As the first companies start to report under this law, this guidance provides a roadmap for businesses that truly want to take meaningful action in this area.
