What employers should involve in their anti slavery statement
Following the latest Statutory Guidance which the Government published on 29 October, Allan Briddock and Ruth Christy discuss in 'People Management' details of the new requirement to publish an anti-slavery statement.

We look at what the Guidance says about the timings and contents of the statement, as well as which businesses are affected.
