Modern Slavery Act

The Modern Slavery Act 2015 requires commercial organisations supplying goods or services with a turnover of £36 million and above to publicly report steps they have taken to ensure their operations and supply chains are trafficking and slavery free.

It is the view of many leading law firms that educational establishments (or their trading arms) which carry out large-scale trading activities (operating sports centres, for example) would be caught by the requirement. The Home Office has published guidance on the requirement and Freeths and Stone King have also published useful information for educational institutions.
