Last week, David Whincup, Head of our London Employment practice, wrote a post in the Employment Law Worldview Blog about the draft of the statutory guidance for the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015.

My word, you think, if this is the seventh draft, what on earth must versions one to six have been like?  Following the passage of the Modern Slavery Act, “many businesses have called for effective guidance on producing a slavery and human trafficking statement” acknowledges the Home Office, but the latest draft of its Practical Guide to Transparency in Supply Chains is clearly not it.

As we await publication of the statutory guidance, David provides an insightful look into its current draft, some helpful points drafters have included, and where there may be room for improvement.   For the full blog post titled, A slave to good intentions – draft MSA guidance falls far short, please click here.
