Modern slavery and Ethical, Social and Corporate Governance: The advantages to businesses in doing the right thing - Wednesday 25 March

Ensuring the rights of workers and working conditions in supply chains should be a core part of corporate compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015. Recent investigations highlighting poor pay and working conditions of UK clothing manufacturing workers have been the subject of concerning newspaper headlines. In some cases, concerns were raised not only in relation to working practices, pay, health and safety, but also to suspicions that there may be issues of human trafficking, tax evasion and tax fraud.

What are the lessons that we can learn from these incidents? And how can businesses ensure they not only remain compliant, but address wider reaching consequences such as as fraud, tax evasion, health and safety breaches, immigration offences and reputational risk. On the 25 March 2021, we hosted an interactive webinar with our panel of subject matter experts.
