Businesses looking to prepare for the introduction of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 are being offered workshop sessions from a team of employment and commercial law experts.
The Act, which came into force in 2015, means businesses with an annual turnover of £36million or more will need to check if they are expected to publish an online statement detailing the steps taken to ensure no slavery or human trafficking throughout their supply chains.
The first businesses caught by the Act are those with a financial year end of 31 March 2016.
Napthens solicitors’ Employment & Commercial teams are offering sessions or one-to-one briefings to directors of organisations which may be affected. These will look at issues including supply chain mapping, compliance and drafting a modern slavery statement.
