Modern Slavery Online Course

Modern slavery is a serious crime with harsh penalties. Victims may be of any age or gender, but they tend to be from the most vulnerable or socially excluded groups.

Examples of modern slavery include human trafficking and people forced to work in poor conditions. Companies and their employees have a duty to help prevent modern slavery across their businesses and supply chains.
