Modern Slavery Reporting

Modern Slavery Reporting

For those of our members responsible for writing their organisation's Modern Slavery Act Statement, you can now access the free resource below in order to help you meet the requirements of the legislation. The guidance allows users to accurately reflect the process of due diligence they are undertaking at their institution by: providing practical advice on what to include, demonstrate how the statement links to their organisation's policies, provide an understanding and application of due diligence, and even include some sample contract variations.


The guidance is written in an easy to follow, user-friendly way by Dr Olga Martin-Ortega, Professor of Public International Law and Leader of the Business, Human Rights and the Environment Research Group.  


Please note the guidance is not a template, it simply provides do's and don’t's on how to approach the task well in a higher education setting. Modern Slavery Statements are due six months from the end of your financial year, so the next statement must be written, signed and published in an prominent place on your website no later than Thursday 31 January 2019.
