‘World-leading’ Modern Slavery Act 2015: review confirms more to be done
A true commitment to upholding and advancing human rights is now at the core of good business. It is now a norm - expected by consumers, regulators and the principles of “good governance” – that companies promote and protect human rights in all parts of their operations, both at home and in their international operations.
Our team of lawyers has many years of experience advising on human rights, corporate governance and investigations, organisational change and policy implementation.
Our lawyers frequently act for corporate clients and charities in the most complex and fraught situations, including cases involving public campaigns aimed at highlighting human rights abuses. We have considerable expertise in cases involving criminal allegations and regulatory breaches, or those connected with the recovery of property obtained through alleged criminal violations.
Our team is at the forefront of developments in Business and Human Rights, including foundation membership of the Business and Human Rights Practitioner Network, speaking alongside the Home Office and other business leaders to promote the Modern Slavery Act 2015 to the business community and public sector, and, most recently, partnering with academics to evaluate the suitability of investigative measures taken by businesses to eradicate slavery in supply chains.
